More snow for Killington as we head into spring.
Snow Makers going to work on Superstar

Snow Makers going to work on Superstar

So last weekend we hit daylight savings time. Next week we hit the Vernal Equinox. By all rights the resort should be settling down, figuring that with the past few weeks of heavy snow that the spring skiing season would be in the bag.

But nooooooooo.......

Late yesterday the Killington Resort brought out the snow guns again to stockpile snow on Superstar to support a long spring season. Today, snow making operations were going on the length of Superstar, and along Great Eastern leading to the Stash and Bear Mountain. Teams of snow makers were visible along Superstar adjusting the guns to direct the snow where they wanted it to fall. Each year the resort builds 20 to 30 feet of snow on Superstar to allow skiing and riding to continue well into May. Warm weather during February prevented the resort for completing the task. But with cold weather due to stay over the area for the next week, the conditions were right to finish the job.

Ski conditions today were fantastic. Groomed trails were covered with deep soft packed powder. On every trail, small to medium sized bumps were developing in response to skiers and riders moving the snow surface around.

Ungroomed trails were nothing short of spectacular. As more and more ropes are dropping across the resort, freshies were exposed for all to enjoy. There were ungroomed trails I skied on today which easily had 3 to 5 feet of untracked powder. Many trails which had a cursory grooming a couple of days ago were showing 2 feet of new snow on them as Mother Nature has continuously dropped the white stuff on the resort all week.

It should be a great St Patrick's day weekend to ski Killington.

Wherever you may be, enjoy the outside and ---> "Think Snow" <---
