First Valentines Day, then Presidents Weekend, now Presidents Week...it has been a glorious run at Killington!
Friday was the last day I had a chance to make some turns; skiing with the Bagel and Ruts on our usual Friday journey around the mountain. From what I remember of it in the blur of a holiday week at Killington, it was pretty good. I stayed out from 9 till just after Noon, which is a worthy attempt at conquering the mountain when you "work for a living". Since then it has been full out at the inn, which is great.
Guests are reporting good conditions on the mountain. The very cold temperatures over the weekend, combined with winds hitting 20MPH continued to firm up the base. However, over the last couple of days temperatures have moderated just a bit, softening up ski surfaces in the process. Todays temps have just cracked 30 degrees, which, when combined with very little wind, should make for a nice ski day on the mountain.
Light snow is forecasted in the area through Thursday night. Not much mind you...in the 3 to 6 territory, but it will help refresh surfaces. Everything contributes to the cause, not the least of which is the massive amount of snow making the resort has been doing every chance they get.
With luck, I will get out for a few runs in the next few days..
Let it snow!
