After my home Mtn., Gore Mtn. closed (just after the March 17 weekend) my son and I began to travel. We went to Sugarbush on March 24 or 25 (whichever day the pond skim was held), but we have spent the last two weekends (April 8 and April 14-today) at Killington. We have had a great time skiing bumps on Superstar and Lower Skyelark. It has been well worth the 2 hr drive and price of lift ticket ($50 for me, $30 for my son). I would have been seriously bummed if my last ski day for the year had been March 17, so I wanted to offer some kudos to Killington for their long-standing practice of stockpiling snow on Superstar to permit extended spring skiing.
I wish other Eastern ski areas would take a page from Killington's book and stockpile snow on a trail (or small handfull of trails) that can be accessed by running one lift.* I ran into and spoke with five other Gore season pass holders at Killington today, all of them appeared to be having a great time.
*Killington also had the gondola running today after a freak midweek storm dumped 18". If Killington had already closed for the season they would not have been able to capitalize on this bit of good fortune.
