BTW, I drive a big rig & have my "Fast Card" so I wouldn't even need a passport! (...They background check, interrogate & vette you pretty good before giving you one of those!)
I rode Killy for 2 days over Christmas break back in like 1997. My dad & I spent all day on Friday driving there, and all day on Monday driving home. Saturday was good, Saturday night it snowed 11 inches, Sunday was pretty epic. My dad lasted all of about 3 runs before he headed to the lodge to sip coffee until 4pm when I was done.

But it was so long ago I don't really remember much about it, and didn't really spend enough time to familiarize with the mountain. It was fun, but it was also I think the first time I had ever boarded outside of Michigan.
