Wow! What a day! It’s almost a completely ski resort from what I last skied on Thursday. A quick snow squall moved through this morning leaving Killington with a quick inch of so to freshen things up. I headed up Superstar first run to check things out. Ovation skied well. Pow dumps on the left and fresh more center. Lower SS had some ice floes in the ungroomed areas of skiers right, but other than that it skied well. That was good and all, but I knew that there was better stuff to find up in the Canyon and easy access with the CQ4 spinning.
Up the K1 to Big Dipper which skied very well. Lots of loose and fresh snow up there. I love the Canyon area. My favorite spot on the mountain. Skied Big Dipper a few times. Watch out for below tower 5, in Big Dipper. Snow was quite glacial in that section, besides that it was fine with great coverage. Met up with some friends and we spun a Cascade. I think it was the best conditions that I have skied Cascade this year. Nice and carvy. After that we did a Rime Run (West Glade) to Royal Flush. First Royal Flush of the season for me. Lots of soft snow and decent coverage on it too. I love Royal Flush.; such an old school Killington run.
Two more Big Dippers, then another Rim Run to a freshly excavated Conclusion, where the freestyle course was, which skied great and that was my ski day
In other Killington Snow News, forecasters are calling for 8-10″ of new snow by Thursday morning. Hope everyone gets a change to get up here and sample it. There is enough base down on most all terrain. 8-10″ new will make the skiing fantastic
