I was up last Friday after the 13"+ storm and conditions were EPIC. The place was beyond packed though. Up here for a few days and decided to hit Pico yesterday. Conditions were great with waist-chest high pow in some spots in the glades. I was at Killington today and conditions were once again excellent. It was very windy in some places and a few trails were blown off down to ice. The trees were epic with fresh pow all over the place. It was lightly snowing all day and started to pick up a little as I was leaving. Nothing crazy, but should be a nice refresh for tomorrow. I'll be up again tomorrow and possibly Sunday if I decide not to head back early. Here is a photo from the Patsys glades today:

That Friday and Saturday are some of the busiest days there all year. I worked that entire week in the lodges and was insane haha. I managed to make it out almost every day during the storm and the conditions were wonderful!!! Glades were amazing!!

It's probably the 2nd most busiest time compared to christmas/new years. The mountain will be fully open by then also, that's another thing to remember. It'll be busy, but not bad at all if you ask me.

Can anyone confirm for me that Killington does not have a half-day option for lift tickets? Is there any sort of discount applied when purchasing after 12pm?
Thanks.

They do. I work in tickets there, on weekends and holidays an afternoon ticket is $79, and on weekdays it's $71. It's only a $9 savings.

Somewhere and Nowhere are pretty mellow glades. I'd stay away from Anarchy. Other than that, I still haven't been through alot of them! There are glades over on Ramshead too you should check out, that whole area is pretty mellow, those should be pretty easy. Look for the Ramshead Express Quad on the trail map all the way to the right, they're around there.

The trees to the right(if heading down the mountain) of the Timberline terrain park on Ramshead are easy and good for learning.
