i went to snowshoe eeeearly in the season last year, before the snow really started falling & before they got dumped on, so that kinda sucked. i didn't make it back down there, but did hit up seven springs, liberty & whitetail, and then went out to colorado for a few days toward the end of (our) season. oh, and i went up to killington early in the season searching for snow, lol. they didn't have any. actually, it was like 60 degrees & raining when we got there at 4:20 in the morning!

my best days/nights were definitely spent in colorado & at seven springs.

liberty's usually my mountain of choice when i'm keeping it as local as possible, but for an extra hours drive, seven springs is starting to seem more worth it.

How "early" in the season was it, when you visited Killington? This January ill be in Killington for a week.
Originally I was going to head out to Colorado, but a friend made me an offer to Killington, that I just couldnt refuse. (Free lodging and ride up).

The only thing with Liberty is that it gets crowded easily. I like the layout of their park, too.

i think it was january. pretty sure. don't get me wrong, they had snow on the mountain, but lots of mountain springs popping up through the snow that i had to *learn* how to jump over, lol...which was great for me, it was the first time i ever jumped! and i did it! from flat on the ground! lol. but the slushy lift line & huge bare spots really kinda sucked. oh, and the fact that their bar closed at 3 was just absured!


oh, and march 13 is pisces.

hahaha, well damn, Killington better be good this season. I hope this winter is H A R S H! Down here in Southern Va, we have been getting blasted with heavy showers and t-storms... I hope this carries on through winter with snow storms instead. That would be titties.

Good job on jumping. Now you gotta do them off kickers.

i do!

and those T-storms are just the result of the hurricaine, not a sign of what's to come. but maybe (hopefully) i'm wrong

Last year the East Coast especially Vermont had a late start. Is was pretty crappy until sometime in Feb then they got hammered. In a normal January, conditions should be decent there. Then again this is coming from a west sider who has never ridden the ice coast.
