Default The Big Beast of the East

Alright I wanna know what people think about the almighty Killington, it's pertty much the bigest thing on the east coast of the US. I've been 4 or 5 times and its alright. Its got its ups and its got its down just like basically anywhere. I think it gets a little croweded though and trying to get from peak to peak tend to be a bit of a hassle just because there is so much going on with 200 some odd trails reading the trail map is like looking into a bowl of spagetti. But enough of what I think let me know what you opinions are

i like killington. its huge with every kind of terrain imagineable. a lot of people complain that its crowded but i have stood in longer lines at liberty. the longest lines are for the ganjalas and they arent really all that bad IMO.

i do agree that getting from peak to peak can be a bit much but at least your riding and dont have to walk it or something.

overall, i've never had anything but good experiences there.

Last year me and two friends went up for a weekend in Vermont, We stayed in Burlington with my buddy and we hit up Bolton Valley, Killington, and Jay Peak
Killington was the worst out of the three days we rode it was super foggy they were blowing snow all over the place it was a "meh" kind of day. But the best day was at Jay which is good news if your goin to the east coast meet.

Not a huge Killington fan. It's a pain in the balls to get around up there. Someone else also said it - it's more of a skiers mt. What about Sugar Bush? I have not been there in yrs but from what I recall I had a great time.

I'm anti killington myself unless you can some how get up there for a weekday it just gets too crowded and full of hammer heads who just get in your way. Stowe and Jay are the spots to go to in VT, Okemo is like 10 minutes from Killington and it also gets busy but it's a family mountain so the harder stuff is wide open and they have a nice gladed diamond run on the south face that is barely ever ridden. Sugarbush was just redone I think like 2yrs ago... they have a beautiful new lodge. I was there for a day last season and the only problem is they don't really make any snow so if there isn't anything natural half the mountain isn't open. I saw a lot of potential in it but the second peak was closed and I'd say it was maybe 40% open when I was there so I can't really judge it. It's also more of a skier mountain with some serious flat spots and definitely not good for a beginner since even the bunny run has a long flat spot to get back to the main lift.

While Killington is huge, I'd rather hit Sunday River. It's a hell of a drive, but the conditions are surreal (after December). If you need a minor Colorado fix, without the plane flight, hit up Jay Peak in VT, they got hammered last year.
