Will Magic be crowded tomorrow?

I’m debating on using my free pass to magic tomorrow as a way to avoid the Epic Pass crowds on a holiday weekend. Will magic have a crazy long lines and be crowded or be relatively empty? My other option is to head to Okemo and hide out on the south face or summit glades runs. Should I save my magic passes for another day to savor the quiet without the crowds? Or go for it tomorrow?

A third option would be to stay home and clean my house but that would suck.

There will be more people then usual perhaps but nothing like Okemo crowds. I feel safe in predicting that you will have fun. Have you read the fine print on your Magic pass though. I have two more Magic Days (1 Indy & 1 Champlain ski card) but they’re blacked out this weekend.

I have owned a horse. Getting them to drink in the winter involves Herculean efforts like driving 35 minutes at midnight on Valentine’s Day during the 2018 cold snap to break ice in buckets and carry hot water in 5 gallon buckets down a flight of stairs and across the barnyard through snow and ice. They don’t always drink, and when they don’t drink they go to Rhinebeck Equine for emergency colic treatment, rack up a $7k vet bill and then die. Then you give up owning horses and take up skiing. I am not sure I get your joke. What am I missing?

My magic pass is a hand written gift certificate that doesn’t say anything about any blackout dates at all. I am tempted to go tomorrow but my husband wants to sleep in and try another day at magic. We’ll see.

The cold will keep some people away. There’s always the green chair if the red’s line gets long. Better than going to Okemo.

I also think first chair will not be crowded because of the cold.  Just a guess.

One thing about Magic, with no "upper mountain lifts" you'll be back in the main line after every run.

Be very interesting to see what happens to the mega passes next year. Will people pay more for a good experience?

I am so sorry this must have been terrible.

I don't get the joke either.

Dayum....for starters I love that story.  Having horses, in a way, sounds a lot like having a boat!

As to my comment, no offense intended!  I’m glad you might get to Magic soon, given you didn’t go Thursday (as some of us advocated ).  Have fun!

What am I missing?  You can lead a horse to water (i.e. encourage Snowflake to go to Magic Thursday), but you can’t make it drink (i.e. Snowflake didn’t go to Magic).  

So, now Snowflake goes to Magic tomorrow (i.e. drinks).

It wasn’t a joke, it was friendly (I thought) use of colloquialism.  Sheesh!  I certainly didn’t mean invoke someone’s traumatic childhood memories of.....owning a horse.
