Why I don't ski/ride on Saturday's

I remember it clearly now why I usually choose to stay far away from the mountain on Saturdays. It is usually shear mayhem. As timing would have it this week, I ended up working at the mountain today. The crowds were pretty nuts. Grant it, while working I don't have to wait in line to get on the lift, but the skier/rider traffic on the trails was just nuts. Stuff was getting skied off by 9:30 this morning. Thank heavens for the couple inches that fell during the day, it really made a difference with the improvement of the snow surface by early afternoon.
Ski Patrol was kept pretty busy from early on today as well. I had my fair share of incidents to check out, which kept me distracted for most of the day.
