Just got back from Killington VT.

We rode Fri. and Sat., Fri. was beatiful bluebird and 35, Sat. was very wet, we gave up at noon, soaked to the bone. I was a little disappointed in the quantity and size of freestyle terrain, granted I'm not exacatly sure how their winter has gone up there but for being one of the biggest resorts on the east coast I was expecting more. It was neat to watch them build the superpipe in preperation for next weekends grand prix event. You would think a place like Killington could some how have 2 pipes though. WE still had plenty of fun. Oh and we drove back to Ohio on Sunday to find the 2' of snow we missed while we were in VT getting rained on, figures
Anyway here is what I got so far to post, the first one is my buddy Bob, it was a sweet jump that you needed every bit of speed for in the slow snow conditions

Here is me on the same jump

I'm sure Mitchamus will add to this post.

I've always been a fan of Killy, but more for the trees and steeps. When they get fluffy, there just can't be complaints!

Agreed. Unless there is some insane feature in the park, I tend to shy away from them (parks) when I goto big mountains. I can ride a box / jump / rail / pipe / etc at my local mountain any time I want. There often seems to be little substantive difference between the box 45 min from house, and the one that is a 4-hour drive at Super-Resort X, Y, or Z (the latter just costs more to press across). I usually go for the stuff I normally DON'T get to ride: double-black steeps, glades / tree-lines, etc.

Nice pics / video, BTW.

Sedition, what is your local mountain where you have the box/jump/rail, etc? I see you're in Boston... Cheers!
