Killington and Sugarbush, Jan 31-Feb 2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

We skied Killington on a delightfully quiet, snowy Friday. it had snowed 4 inches overnight, and snowed heavily until mid morning, which created very good conditions. The whole mountain was open with excellent cover. We had fun skiing the steep groomed like Outer Limits, Cascade and Canyon, as well as cruising some great soft blue groomers and well covered glades. Killington is skiing really well right now.

 

Saturday at Sugarbush was brutally cold and windy, and sunny and deserted. If you found the areas where the wind was depositing snow, the skiing was great. If you hit the wind scoured areas, it was glacial. Luckily  the former wasn't too hard to find, especially in the woods. Sunday was similar only a fair bit warmer (1F!!!) and less windy. It was a great ski day as the wind had blown all night and the groomers had fixed the glaciers. The woods were loaded with snow, and some of the skiing on the steeps/bumps was superb.

 

All in all, a killer weekend. Sorry Pacific Northwest, I think New England has all your snow. With snow cover like now, Sugarbush is a great ski hill. Lots of pics at:

I was at the bush on the wknd and killington on Monday. The hills were empty thanks to the superbowl. At Killington, I was on Pipe dream at 9AM. First time ever I was in a foot of powder that had no tracks on it. What a country! The snow was scalloped by the wind and as I rode over it on a pair of KAstle 94, I really thought I was surfing. I can only imagine what it must feel like on powder skis. By noon, everything had chopped up crud and by the end of the day, moguls had formed but the snow was still powder. And more snow is coming tonight! Another foot over the weekend.

nice timing - a foot of pow after the local team won the Superbowl. Perfect. We brushed a foot of pow off our truck in Syracuse on Monday morning on way home. There could be at least that much in next few days. Wish I could get up there again.
