I went up to Killington for big spring bumps today. Outer Limits was the centerpiece, with a few Wildfire and Superstar runs thrown in.
Conditions were great once you got past a few bare spots right at the top.
Did laps on OL for about 4 hours, except for a couple of Wildfires (easier bump run that loops around OL) to remind my body what it is supposed to feel like. Honestly, I was only happy with last couple OL's. Wildfire and Superstar were significantly easier -- I was able to ski those bumps very aggressively.
The bump gods came out on OL about 1:30. There were 4 or 5 guys doing what I call "sewing machine" skiing where it is all absorbtion. No pesky judges to mark down the "turns" score component. And two guys telemarking them. I also saw a lot more good bump boarders than I am used to.
Superstar was tons of fun, but much easier. Here is a randon skier taken from the lift. You can see the full-on spring snow consistency (and it's a fun picture).
The big muscles in my legs were doing fine, but the small ones in my lower legs were screaming. So I went in and sat down from 3:30 to 3:45 and then went out for a last run:
I've got a good drill for taking a more direct line in the bumps -- try to make last chair. I made it, with 2 minutes to spare. So I got two last runs.
