Not sure is this is exactly K-Zone but found the most comprehensive detail to date on this weekend and next week's plan:

Killington - Snow Plan update from Killington

Ya that's not KZone, but I saw that from Facebook. The new boss is really doing a great job communicating with people.

So I think they had 5 trail open today - debating if that's worth going? I think I saw reference to 600 vertical feet - that doesn't seem like much? Wondering if the runs are long enough?

Logically, you are totally right.

But perhaps the question isn't whether the runs are long enough but rather has the wait since your last ride been long enough?

Look at the interactive map and where they are blowing. Without a doubt they will be top to bottom tomorrow.

Here is a pic from an hr ago, lot of expansion going on

It is a long drive, but we desperately need a fix. Will it be worth the trip on Monday? Love to hear what the conditions were today. Thanks!

Default Sat Perspective

Can't tell you about Sun but Saturday was worth it, keeping all in perspective. I was rusty as all hell, thin conditions with a broken finger but happy to be out there overall.

They did have "Top to Bottom" via a meandering green, slow in parts, but long enough. The blues were on the second lift, shorter lift about mid mountain, crowded.

Stuck mostly with the top main green to the bottom with the Gondola back up top, avoiding the mid mtn-mob scene. If the "9" trails were still solid Monday would be cool b/c there'd likely be less folks.
