At Vail, the lift line from hell on a "ridiculous" day

Photographer/ski bum Scott Limbird sent the above photo of Vail from yesterday, a day he called "ridiculous." Read his description of the day after the jump.
Sunday at Vail was ridiculous. Rumor had it that upwards of 18,000 people were on the slopes, which I guess is understandable: Vail reported 9 inches officially, but back in the bowls there was definitely snow up past my knees, which made for some epic runs.
That's the tradeoff, I suppose, epic runs for epic lift lines. But, as this season has already definitely confirmed, skiing is a social experience, and there was lots of socializing going on today in the lift lines. And apart from the three cars and a semi off the road on Eastbound I-70 over Vail pass, most people seemed to be having pretty spectacular days.
