Killington Snow Report for Tuesday March 13Back Country Skiing, Freeriding, Killington, Skiing, Snow Report, Snowboarding, Uncategorized
Overcast, peaks of sun and even a few very light sprinkles, 58*, light wing at 12:45
Today’s report is coming via others out there on the hill as I didn’t get a chance to get out today. My buddies have been texting me that it is skiing better than it looks with soft snow and not too rotten. There was a 15 minute sprinkle, but besides that nothing big Anything with a man made base is skiing decently. Anything with natural on top is too sticky to be enjoyable.
I’m hearing that there is quite a few people out there enjoying themselves which is helping with the surface. Seems than only the traverses were groomed last night which is helping the keeping the trails more soft than slushy. This has lead to my buddies telling me how good the moguls are today. Most notably OL. Well, there is also the fact that it has been like 25* above normal and the snowpack is starting to show it. I mean there’s good skiing, but 60* for an extended period will take its toll. The light at the end of the tunnel is that the temps at higher els are forecasted to at least drop below freezing, thus breaking this rotten snow and forming another corn cycle; from the looks of it, Thurs-Sunday. If we can at least get night time freezing, than skiing will stay decent at least. With 24 hr melting, it just leads to rotten snow and shrinking bases. But for now, things are still holding strong. Get up here if you can!
