The following Wednesday was a mad powder day with white out conditions and fun as hell.
All in all, this is a great local mountain with so much variety with the crossovers, you could NEVER do the exact same run twice if you chose.
omg i feel like an idiot. i meant Kirkwood in Tahoe area, not Killington. It's a 40 minute drive or so from South Lake, but totally worth it. it's amazing what painkillers for a bruised rib can do to your mind.
Phew! Thank you for clarifying!!!! Kirkwood is Spctacular, for SURE! I was there the week before you and it was UNREAL! 10 feet of snow in 5 days..seriously? Although, I'm not sure what Sieke is? I assume you don't meant the Cirque (which is closed to regular riding). Either-way kirkwood is the best resort in the 'Hoe!
