Killington?

I'm thinking about taking a drive up to killington tomorrow(5-12) from CT. Was anyone there today? I know trail reports like to "stretch" the truth and wanna know what I should actually expect.

Moguls and slush and 1 and 1/2 trails open and lots of unstrapping and mud.

Sorry to disappoint you. If the conditions were "good," I'd be there, but frankly, it's not worth it for the conditions AND they're charging $39 for 1 lift ticket that works for 1 lift and 1 and 1/2 trails.

I was there a about a week and a half ago and even the groomed portions ended up bumbed a couple hours into the day. Personally I thought it was great, been really getting into mogul runs. Though not everyone may feel the same. Shit was nice and soft though, if you want to get your bump run practice in, now is the time. Though you may get some road rash if you wipe. Spring corn does do that

moguls are a little more tolerable when its soft and not icy but they still make my legs too tired Any idea when their closing date is? I might be up towards the end of the month...

i was there this past sunday and personally, i didn't like the conditions at all but i kept taking runs because i kept saying "at least i'm still snowboarding"..lol

it was their first weekend not grooming so the bumps were completely edge to edge and the size of VW bugs.there were 2 trails open. the only top to bottom one was Superstar that was directly under the lift. it went from slush to total ice. there was a short trail(upper Skylark) blue trail that was fun but it just goes right back to superstar.
keep checking their site to see when or if they plan on grooming and they're saying that they want to stay open till June 2nd

damn, that doesn't sound like its worth the 8 hour trip. kudos to them for staying open but those type of bumps sound like they're catering to skiers.


guess I'll go back to plan B of winning the lottery and flying down to Chile

hahahaha!! that sounds like a good plan! i wish i thought of that first.

keep checking the killington site, call them or email them through facebook to see if they groom it or not. if they do decide to groom it, i'll be going up again and i'll bring my own small rainbow rail or box and set it up at the bottom.
