MLK weekend

Do you think the slopes & lift lines would be excessively crowded on Martin Luther King weekend (Jan 19-21) compared to a non-holiday weekend in January?

I suspect there will be more people in general, but would it be too much of a pain to make a trip from NC worthwhile?

We also have the Tues/Wed after MLK Monday to make it an extra long weekend. Last year we were there the weekend after MLK and the lift lines were very reasonable.

Without doubt the slopes and lift lines will be excessively crowded on MLK weekend compared to a non-holiday weekend in January. The lines should be much better on Tues and Weds. If you could come the first week in February, or any time in February that avoids President's day weekend, things should be pretty slow at the resorts with minimal lift lines. Also, better chance of warmer temps and more snow.
