Killington Trail Recommendations

I'm leaving for Kill Thursday night riding Fri-Sun. Anyone know which trails have some good glade runs? Hopefully there'll still be a lot of pow left after the storm on wednesday.

It'll probably be a bit tracked-out, but some of the ones I enjoy are Centerpiece, Growler, The Throne (A little Easier), and Chop-Chop (a little easier), and Big Dipper. Squeeze Play can be fun, too. Especially if the snow isn't too deep. Remember, if there's pow you'll want to set your bindings back so that you aren't nose-diving all the time.

When you go in, there will probably be mogul bumps all over the place, just trek to the left or right of the main path that has been blazed and you'll find good stuff. Save spots like Julio and Anarchy for when it has recently snowed (like last 20 hours recent).

Well just got back. Squeeze play was fun until it got tracked out. Julio scared the crap out of me and we didn't hit the other trails since we were tried from falling so much the other days...lol

I'll recheck this thread and pm you bigtime when I head out in March.

So needsnow, how tough are those glade runs relative to squeeze play. After other trees got tracked out and turned into moguls me and my buddies wimped out on the other glade runs.

Squeeze play is more along the lines of the easier ones. Not too steep and relatively open. Centerpiece is steeper with some low-lying junk, so a little more difficult. Julio and Anarchy should scare you, but when they're fresh, they are a blast. I'm good for 5 or 6 falls when I'm in them and I like to think I'm pretty good.

Yea squeeze play is easy, we even went into the trees in the middle of the trail and was tempted to go far left. I saw youtube vids of julio and didn't think it was a good idea. If it was like 10 or 11 years ago I would've gone for it in a heartbeat but the vids made it look so dense that I didn't believe in my turning abilities in something that dense. Plus back then I was riding a 155 compared to my 161 and I was like 45lbs lighter. There's always next season though. If I can get more glades in this season and early next season Julio will be a goal of mine.

So what order of glades from easiest to hardest? Obviously squeeze play is easy but which glades in progression should we attemt next time?
