Full review

Have skied this mountain since 1966. Always friendly, rarely crowded, easy to access off Rte 4 (no access road/traffic), parking/handicap/drop off, LeBus to Killington/Rutland, after ski ambiance. Improvement needed by new owners (2007-8) more attention to grooming AND most of all, MUST CONSIDER REPLACING MID MOUNTAIN LIFT WHICH WAS REMOVED, TO BE REPLACED BUT UNABLE TO BE COMPLETED DUE TO FINANCIAL CONSTRAINTS SOME TIME AGO. Without the mid mountain lift (formerly "Tower 10 get off" and "Birch Glades Lift") there is limited access to SO MUCH GREAT INTERMEDIATE SKIING ONLY reached via ONE INTERMEDIATE ACCESS TRAIL ('49er) With frequent wind conditions shutting down the upper main chair a mid mountain lift would provide lots of great skiing on a "not so great weather day." PLEASE CONSIDER REPLACING A LIFT TO MID MOUNTAIN. THANKS. Will continue to ski here until my legs no longer hold me up. Still skiing at 71 yo
