Blue skies for a Mother's Day afternoon.
I wish I could say that I got out there this past weekend, but I had other things going on and the only time I could break away was early Friday and I know it the snow was still set up, so I passed. I’m not done skiing, just missed this weekend and I plan on skiing this Friday and Sunday so I will have a better first hand report and pics. Anyway, for this week, I have plenty of friends that ventured out all three days and they sent me plenty of texts and pics on how it was.
At this point it’s Superstar top-to-botton and a groomed out Skyelark headwall back to Superstar. That route is nice as it gives you the option of going around the Supe headwall if you would like. Superstar hasn’t been groomed since Tuesday night, April 30, so the bumps grew with skier traffic last weekend than dissapated midweek with the warm temps. Make no mistake, the warm temps early last week took a toll on the snow pack, but temps stabilized as the week wore on and Killington sent out a groomer to pull the runout together back to the base of the chair
From what I was told, Friday afternoon after 2 was quite nice once things had softened up. Saturday was a day for the hardy. It was chilly, which kept things firm and there were periods of intermittent rain. It was definitely a skiable day, you just had to be there at the right time. Sunday sounds like it was the best day of the three. Skier traffic and warmer temps kept things soft. There wasn’t so much skier traffic that the moguls got huge and rutted, but enough to get them skied in and skiing well.
From the looks of the long range forecast, this weekend looks fantastic. Yes, I know that’s a long time away, but lets hope it stays true and we’re fortunate enough to have three days of sunny, warm weather. Fingers crossed and we’ll see you on Friday and every weekend after that until the snow runs out or June 2, whichever comes first !
Have a good week!

Jonathan Celauro started skiing when he was four and still hasn't quite figured it out yet. After college, he moved to Killington and now 16 yrs later, each comprised of 100+ day ski seasons, he's still trying to grasp the whole skiing concept. At this point he imagines his best option is to just go with the flow. "I still find myself dreaming of big mountain lines and deep powder snow." J.C. Shop Our Online Store
