Killington Snow Report Thursday March 15Freeriding, Killington, Skiing, Snow Report, Snowboarding, Uncategorized
Mostly cloudy, 48*, light wind.
It was chilly and fogged in somewhat early so I waited around for the snow to soften and hit the hill for a few afternoon runs. The snow was plenty soft. Places that weren’t groomed skied better than what was groomed. I’m sure that wasn’t the case this morning. Best corn snow I found which made for some smooth skiing was on Needles Eye. OL skied well too, but honestly the traverse to get there from the SPE, Superstar chair or Skyeship is cumbersome. Upper wildfire skied well as that too was some smooth, soft corn snow. The bottom was groomed making it mushier and thicker.
Well, sorry to report this but it seems that all the natural snow trails in the Skyepeak/Northbrook pod have breached. I mean they’re still skiable, but they are closed. Trails include Upper Dreammaker, Thimble and Vertigo. Old Needles Eye was still open, but I cant imagine for how long as it wasn’t looking too strong. Skyehawk was roped off, but still looks skiable on skiers left. The right side and middle are melted through.
The snowmaking trails are still in strong shape, excluding Upper Skyeburst which is starting to look thin, with edge to edge coverage. Needles Eye has some bare spots, but skiers left is looking okay. Trails like Cruise Control, Lower Skyeburst, Lower Wildfire and of course the Superstar pod of Bittersweet, Skyelark, and Superstar are all holding up well.
Seriously folks, if you’re on the fence about coming up, do so. This weekend is looking glorious with late spring temps and sunshine. Get up here before it’s gone!
