Yep.

I'm still holding out hope that Feb and March will bring the storms and that we'll be riding into April.

This rain sux.

That is true. At most, it seems like around 5 days lead time or so for the big storms. Just wish this winter was closer to a repeat of last...

Be there 7-FEB through 12-FEB. Expecting light snow thursday, friday, and sunday. Hope that changes and it drops a bit more but it's looking great so far. Wish they blew more.

Going up this Saturday. Hope it's good. Temperatures are good for snowmaking, but how much snow does Killington actually blow?

Thinking of taking a lesson actually... hmm. I've managed to get group lessons that are actually like private or 1 other person at some other places, because usually it's beginners taking more lessons than people who are more intermediate, wonder if I can swing that at Killington.

If the temperature is right they usually blow 2-3 runs a night.

I was there the other week and some rain definitely ruined the conditions, went from 115 runs open to 60 something. You have to watch Killington though, they call ANYTHING an open run. Like right now at 78 runs (according to their website) I wouldn't bother going for the riding condtions, but their parks are fun if that's your thing.

Yeah, I mean, the trip is already planned out so I'm going for sure, it's a large group, but I just got a new park board and it looks like the Timberline park has a lot of features that are good for progression... so I may hang out there the whole weekend.

Timberline is their beginner park, with jumps not getting over 10 feet gaps. I'd stick to Bear Mountain so you can ride the stash and dream maker, but have fun, I definitely did.
