Snowshoe's website is claiming that Cupp Run will be open top to bottom this weekend. Wow/Woot!

I might have to convince the little lady that this year's demo days is a must.=)

Woohoo! And they are gonna have Knot Bumper and Camp 99 open as well... its nice to see a few more black diamond runs opening up.

I was over there on Saturday and the lift lines at Ball Hooter were so bad I just did laps on the one green run that was open by the Soaring Eagle Express lift.

I almost got excited till I read that. Oh well, looks like I'll be waiting until March again before making the drive out there...................

You just need to avoid the weekends (especially holiday weekends) or be more strategic about the choice of lifts/times. Ballhooter is especially dependent on planning when skiing on Saturdays.

There's rarely a notable line for the Western Express, even when the slopes look busy. So Cupp ought to be good for the weekend, especially since we're still in early season and the real crowds haven't shown up yet.

The real solution is to ski on weekdays -- all the local resorts are a lot more likeable without the weekend crowds.

Once Silver Creek opens, you can forego Ballhooter and head for Silver Creek after 1100 or so. No lines and plenty of skiing. The Soaring Eagle quad is also under utilized and serves four good trails, so that's another good alternative to Ballhooter.
