Capacity for the Epic Reservations "waiting room" was noted as 50,000 to 150,000 per hour at one point, but mostly "Serving: ~50k guests per hour". Biggest number I saw for the queue was close 130,000. Wait times I heard about were on the order of 3-4 hours through the afternoon. There is an entire month for people to book up to 7 Priority Days during the "core season" before any day tickets are made available. If someone cannot get their desired days by Dec. 7, they can request a full refund. At the end of Day 1, none of the Tahoe resorts, W-B, or Breck had days that were sold out. I think the idea is that most reservations after Dec. 7 will end up "week of" reservations, meaning the window opens up on Wed for the following Friday-to-Friday. After early Jan, there may be people picking more Priority Days after using the first days up during the Christmas holidays. But then again perhaps that will be relatively few people since many American Epic holders only take one big ski vacation a year. Those who have to fly to resorts in the Rockies are likely to just ski locally the rest of the season in the midwest, mid-Atlantic, or northeast.
