    I'd bet anyone $5 that you could roll up to the chairlift at Abasin, with an active Ikon Pass Pass (with Abasin days remaining), and be cleared for take off. Maybe with a reservation printout or without.
    They are planning on having people out at the parking lot gates checking reservations there. Then again by the lodge.

    Pretty friggin good. Snow from the other day was the perfect corn/pow mix. They had most the west wall and Lenawee parks open. Stoked to be lucky!

    Pretty simple, they parked people sparsely then just show your reservation confirmation/pass at a kiosk, then ride! Have to go up BMX to get over to Pali although only Slalom and grizzly open from there.

    Maybe a few in line at Lenawee around 10ish but otherwise ski right on the lift

    Not really any lines, longest line was waiting for Black Mountain to open at 8:30, and one time we got to Lenawee and it was single file spaced to the end of the cue, 2-3 min top.

    Didn't seem like there were anywhere near 600 people there.

    If that was 600 people there today, it sure didnt feel like it. Waited maybe a chair or two every time. Snow was in great shape too. Skinning for a few months straight really makes you appreciate chairs...

    I'm hearing reports that somewhere between 100-150 people that won a reservation to ski yesterday, never showed up. I can't prove the legitimacy of that claim, but I wouldn't doubt it.....people are dipshits. Those folks should be blacklisted for the remainder of the season.....you had your chance and failed, too bad.

    I mean I had to leave at 11 for work, but when I did there weren't many people. Only half the main lot was open, and then there was only maybe 4 lines of cars in the 2nd lot, highly doubt 600 people.

    Well yeah......but you showed up and skied! That counts.

    Apparently there were 4,000 people logged in on Monday afternoon trying for those 600 spots, which caused the system to crash. Damn.

    actually sounds like good news... novelty appeal for the most part. after the novelty wears off, should be easy to get tickets. weekdays in particular.

    Yeah I was saying that I figured 600 people would’ve filled the parking lot a bit more. It was just pretty empty, more so proving your point.
