So me and 2 of my buddies went to Killington this past weekend, stayed at a dump motel in Rutland for next to nothing but it was a 10min drive from K1 lodge so I cant complain. The conditions were as good as they could have been considering it rained on friday and got cold saturday so that means tons of ice.
Saturday wasnt bad, a decent amount of people on the lift lines but other than the K1 gondola the lines moved quite quickly. Then again it was so windy n icy at Killingotn Peak it wasnt worth the gondola line at all.
Sunday the mountain was PAAAACKED, I felt like I was skiing at Mountain Creek (aka Vernon Valley, NJ). The lines did move well (other than the gondola) but the ice was awful. Usually if you stay to the edge of the trails or in the trees you'll stay away from the ice, but nope. The glades were nice looking but straight ice everywhere, and the same went for 85% of the trails, even when I was cruising the edge of the trails I was hitting ice.
The multiple terrain parks were all EXCELLENT, jumps and rails for all levels...... And the stash is something you have to experience 1st hand, its the most unique terrain park Ive ever seen, they even built a huge jump in the glades off of 'the stash.
Other than the ice and people EVERYWHERE it was fun. I wanna try it again but not on a huge holiday weekend where everyone and their mother will be skiing
