Time spent traversing should count as time on the lift.  I wonder if they could quantity a minimum slope as time spent downhill skiing to give the High T and Ullr's flats their due as time spent not skiing.

There's a lot of world included in "going in the notch" and there is a lot of world that isn't the notch. Other than that, I can show you, but can't tell you.

Roger,
Please explain.    I could see where time on the trail might be longer at Alta because of all of the traversing.   Smuggs doesn't have much traversing from my experiences.  I always saw that as one of the big advantages of Smuggs over other ski areas.  Even going in the notch, it is quicker to get out than at Stowe. Slide Brooke requires waiting for the bus.  Jay you need to park a car for some stuff.  

Paul,
"We took a look at the average times spentwaiting and sitting on a lift vs. average vertical in a day for every resort in North America. We took the top 30 from more than 300 resorts (so this represents the cream of the crop).” – Alpine Replay

Interesting that they use vertical drop rather than time on trail. Places like Alta and smuggs would fare better with with that metric.

Who is the slowest of them all? I would like to know the opposite end of the list: most time on lift + least time on snow.

Dave, isn't the one of most important things your decision making proximity to your job/home?

Their formula is vertical drop / time on lift (including lift lines), as gathered by phone apps.

The biggest numbers in the east are:

Stowe
Hunter
Loon
Whiteface
Okemo
Stratton

Even if I trusted the data, the results don't suggest anything I would consider important in making any decision about where to ski.
