I’m calling it the best day of the year. Killington Snow Report Tuesday April 10Freeriding, Killington, Skiing, Snow Report, Snowboarding, Uncategorized
Light snow in the morning to more moderate snow in the afternoon, 32* at 11:00. 18″ at K peak, 10-12″ at KBL and oh yeah, it’s still snowing
Wow. I’m going to go ahead and say it. Today was the best day of the season. Sure the snow was damp below mid-mountain, but the terrain that was accessible, which is pretty much all of K basin, Snowdon and anything above the Snowshed crossover is all ungroomed and few and far tracks between. Also, I had the pleasure of hiking, ripping fresh lines and most importantly laughing my ass off with some good friends. There was actually a point in the hike up Kilink to get to Snowdon that I had to stop walking because I could breathe as I was laughing so hard. That was just one instance. There was a few of those today.
I got there at 11. Went up the Superstar chair and skied Skyehawk>Superstar. Then it was game on as the K1 loaded around 11:20. I only skied seven runs today, but it took me over three hours. Every run off the K1 was on Snowdon. Nothing off the K1 is groomed, so proceed with caution and use common sense. There’s 18″ up top and less as you made your way down. Since the snow was somewhat dense, you either needed to find untracked or something totally cut up. The in between stage was kind of jerky and threw you off balance. There was still plenty of fresh everywhere when I left at 2:15 and it was snowing harder when I left than it has been all day. Tomorrow is going to be yet another good day. Seriously folks, get up here!
