Any firsthand reports from Killington yet?

The more recent the better.

I currently have some transportation problems but I REALLY want to get up there as soon as possible.

In fact, if anyone in the Rockland County area has any plans and an open seat...

On my end I know I can get us lodging at MRG, which is close enough to Killington to make a day trip.

Nov 2-3 at Killington. Great coverage, no bear spots, but too many skiers! Killington Peak and overflow lot, Snowshed and the road from Snowshed to the Peak...all full!!!! 3 lifts and 15 (really 8) trails. $39 adult ticket.

Great stuff. Groomed and moguls! [img]smile.gif[/img]

I was also up there last weekend. Sorry I missed ya Keetov.

It was crowded but it was great to be out there. It was my first time this year and the conditions were great. Everyone you talked to just couldn't believe how good the snow conditions were and kept saying that it looked like mid winter.

I took my slightly used new to me G4's out for a test drive and they handled great. I was arc'n um and even got to float them a couple of times. In November!!!

Here is a photo I took on Saturday morning about 8:15am which should give you a clearer picture of the conditions.



I've just put my site together so be patient.

Cheers,

Sean

I was up to K-Mart on the 9th. Lift lines weren't that bad (I was hanging out at the Snowdown Quad and Glades Triple for the most part), but the trails could be crowded. Hey, it's Killington early season. Not many bare spots, but there were one or two "why is this trail open?" areas. Rock skis aren't necessary though. I was sticking to the blues and blacks -- held off on the double blacks -- I've got the rest of the season to do something really stupid. It was pretty warm on Saturday -- mid 40s or so, so pretty much everything was bumpy by mid-afternoon. Standard east-coast bump skiing -- try to stay in the fall line while avoiding the crashes. (Not that I'm a great bumper myself : ). The snow held up pretty well though -- no ice, the stuff held an edge, was reasonably forgiving... All in all, a good first day back!
