Bahah...that's pretty funny. Next time you see him you should walk up to him and go "Jarrod, Westa says hi" LOL Super nice guy, gets a little crazy, and can ride like a bat out of hell.

We did have a good time, despite some of the worst conditions I have ever rode. It's real frustrating to see the past, and future storms rolling through there only a week after I left. Timing is a bitch, eh? Ermm

it's been a dismal season for sure.... good snow falling now... and while I was away.  I think Ma Nature is trying to tell me something.

Speaking of luck.... i was in Co for 7 days... it snowed for 5 of them.  Rode pow stashes in Vail that were waist deep.... breck was knee deep all day in the woods.... Cover was thin under the pow, and you can tell by looking at the bases of the decks i brought.... The new NUG took a shot down to the core when i busted up my tailbone.

I've seen your bud on the mtn... he does rip it pretty hard.  Not sure i want to break that ice tho, as he seems like he would be more than i would want to handle after a day of shredding LOL

I went last weekend... soft mushy slush for snow, and no more grooming.  Was fun for a few runs.... that's all I'll say about it.

According to a FB announcement this morning they dropped a ton of snow over night and are down to about 23 or so trails.  No more K1 Gondi or snowdon triple....

If you are going up be prepared for moguls/bumps everywhere and an ugly mess of slushy snow.

Yeah, sad, sad season for sure. If you go to the killy website, and look at all the web cams it looks pretty dismal. 1/2 pipe has huge mud spots in the center, brown snow all over the place, anything that doesn't get much sun looks like an ice sheet that is bumped up...looks pretty bad over there.
They did lower the price of an adult ticket to 59. Still pretty high if you ask me if k1 is shut down and they only have 23 runs.

Just based on the 10 day for there, I would expect them to shut the doors pretty soon. A far cry from the june superstar days of years past. What a crazy ass year...just crazy.

Your not kidding... dismal is the only word for how fast it's melting away.  K canceled Snowmont and moved pond skimming to the first weekend in April... at this rate I question if they'll even make it that long.  They've dropped over 100 trails in less than a week..... Granted what is open they made a ton of snow on, but even still..... with temps pushing mid 70s even that base wont last long.

On a side note... i'm getting married this summer, so we're not sure if we're going to bother to spring for our passes next year.  This year wasnt all that convincing.... I still have the house, and will prob do my best to keep conditions posted on here, but my day count will be far less than it was the last few years.

BmW.... i still owe you that beer, lets try again next year!

You do indeed!LOL

It's probably just the optimist in me, but I have high hopes for next season. There can't be two shit seasons back to back. And if you track the snow history for the area, there usually is a bad ass season following every shit season so far on record.

we should try to get a little troutdoors killy meet up next year when I am in town. I have a feeling it's going to be an out of control week for my group. It will be the 20th year my in-laws have been to killy for their annual ski trip.

Killington is reporting 10" of powder in the last 24 hours but only 5 trails open. Sounds like some good powder runs if your close.

Time to dust off this old thread with a 2 for 1 coupon!

Not sure I'll be as much of a player on conditions and other reports for K this year.... I'm getting married on Aug 18th and then off to Hawaii for a few weeks.  Didn't leave as much budget for Passes and other expenses related to having a dedicated ski rental.  I will be getting up there often, just not as often as years past.

Anyway, I'll do what i can, when i can... and here's my first submission... Killington 2 for 1 Good until December 16th.  You can print one per email, so if you have a few, you can print a few.

Must have.... I swore i put the appropriate amount of postage on the thing.... guess horseheads weigh a bit more than i expected!

I've been out of the game for a bit this summer... trying to break the addiction to buying snowboard stuff.  Thank god the deals on WM have been mostly surf related this summer!

I will say, I've missed it.  I was almost afraid the site was going to be gone when i typed it in.

Don't look at WM right now, they are on a snowboard gear binge.

Early congrats on your wedding, I wish you many, many years of married bliss!  Maybe one day our families can meet up at Valdoro.

I sure hope so bud.... I'll be passing on the Breck trip this year and going Whistler or Tremblaunt instead.  I'm using the majority of my time share for Hawaii, so if I'm going to pay to go somewhere, it'll be somewhere that I cant use my timeshare... makes sense.. right?

I thank you for the early celebratory wishes, it's been a whirlwind of preparation and spending.  I'll be glad when I finally touch down on the island and can start relaxing.

Ok, so I didn't listen and looked at WM.  I'm now the proud owner of a Brown Nike Juniper Jacket.... Eff.

Tough deal to pass up, nice jacket.

My sister-in-law said HGVC has a condo near Whistler, she's considering planning the next family ski/snowboard trip there.

Yeah, weddings are pricey.  Yesterday I read a headline that said on average couples spend about $25K on the wedding.  Sheee-it, that's too much money.

Yes, i did hear that HGVC was planning on opening a resort at Whistler.  Last i checked it was only open to members who's "home" share was actually at the resort.  But i'm sure that's changed by now, and if not, it will in the very near future.

The wedding has run it's total up very close to the mark you just mentioned.  IF you don't count any of the money that was spent on or during the honeymoon.  We've had some small donations from family, but nothing to speak of.  We're tackling this ourselves financially, Hence no season pass, or dedicated ski house rental this year.

From what I know they haven't announced a full open date.  Typically it would be in the next few weeks, but only restricted mtn usage will be available.  Be ready for the "stairway to heaven" if you plan to ride as soon as it opens.

Few friends went up for the soft opening last weekend.  Conditions were bumpy and thin... but still came with positive reports.

Think snow...

IDK if they'll be opening again for a bit. It has been pretty warm here this week. I got to go last Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful bluebird day. It was all bumped up by the time I got up there, but it was still super fun. Nice and soft, plenty of coverage on the trail they did have open (Rime). Plus, it wasn't crowded at all.
I have to say, I'm not a huge fan of Killington and their ways in the past, but this was super awesome of them to open it up to the passholders. Everyone in their operations did a great job. Clap
On another note, anyone who complains about any riding in October should be banned from playing snowboardz. Dead

Agreed! I feel any snowboarding is better then none at all!
Before my son I would ride my local mountain until they closed. There would be mud/grass gaps, rocks to ollie over, and lots of bumps everywhere.

I haven't been around much with "life" going on... but I have had a chance to make a few trips up to K this season. 

Anyone else been up much?

So far it's been one of the better starts to the season that we've seen in a long while...  Good coverage, and already a few pow days under my belt.  The trees off North Star (low rider and patsy's) have been stellar..... even had a chance to beat up some thigh deep pow the day before New Years Eve.

Although I've put half the days on that I had at this point last year, the days that i have gotten have been beyond awesome.  They ahve a pretty serious cold snap going right now, so expect them to be cranking the man made white as hard as they possibly can.

Kudos to the new CEO for making good on his promise to make snow as much and as often as possible.  Pass holders are def seeing a difference.... Keep it up!

I bet the quality of that man made is top notch too. The weather has been perfect the past few days for crankin out quality MM.

I'll be up to K-Town the 9th through the 16th or 17th, just depends on our plans to getting back to Ohio and timeline..

Really crossing my fingers to get a good pow day up there this year. This will be my 5th year going there, and have yet to have one...still beats Ohio riding any day though Wink

Awww dam.... good to see you posting man.  Sounds like we might actually cross paths this year up there.  Think my next weekend up is going to be the weekend of the 9th.  Hoping it works out... i still owe you a beer!

The MM has been pretty good for the most part... but still has a tendency to pack if it's not wicked cold.  I've been lucky to catch storms the few times i've been up..... not to rub it in, but... yea.

It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

Went up Tuesday 2/12/13.....

Nobody on the mountain... no body in the lodges.  Why is it that I don't do more midweek riding? Oh yea.... work.

Even with the small crowds, i hate to say it, but the conditions were garbage.  Almost every run was hardpack ice, with little to no loose stuff on the sides.  Even the trees were trashed.  Snow was in the forecast (hence the trip) but managed to never change from rain to snow.

ROTD was Cruise control in the Needles eye area.  Not sure if it's due to the fact that it faces more west than north, but it had decent snow.... was fast and fun.

If you're going up and you can push it off... i would.... they need some significant snowfall to recover from this mess.

just went up for the storm from friday to sat. the mountain was awesome. i was surprised i was able to get into the trees. there was some low coverage in some spots but enough to get in there. the stash was in full effect. dropped the pillow in the tree runs to a washed out landing. i thought i was first to hit it unless someone went under it and pushed the whole landing out trying to heel stop down the chute. dream maker is in full effect as well. the rail garden is pretty gnarly and the jumpline was pumping. im surprised i was able to hit em with the pow. going back up this weekend cause i got the itch. see you there!

Rode on 2/16 and 2/17...

What a difference a few days make.  Snow was good, firm and edge-able.  Super fast and fun.  Being a holiday weekend, it was necessary to get in early and get as much of the goods as you could before the crowds arrived.

Fav runs of the weekend were Cruise Control (as usual, that run always seems to be good), Superstar Headwall and middle, then bailout to Skylark... (I recorded a 71.6mph top speed on Skylark mid day Saturday... needless to say it was fast).  East to East... again super fast, smooth and edge-able.

After riding we enjoyed a few beers by the fire pit near the umbrella bars.... great times, great weekend.

Snow on the way mid week, and rumors of more this weekend.  Get it while the getting is good.

Yeah man, after tuesday things really got better. Thursday and Friday were perfect groomie days, could really lay an edge in.

Still pissed you never get at me Tuesday, but it is what it is LOL

Getting around to get my trip report written up, nothing too exciting (although tons of bad words about the killington staff all around) just a few pictures and such. Hope the next system stays cold for you up there.

Glad you had a good time... again i'm sorry for forgetting to text you when I was there on Tuesday.

I am also hoping these next two systems can pull together some good totals... I'm trying to get back up there for a 3dayer this weekend.

i am planning a trip to go to Vermont to snowboard, but i was told there a couple of really good mountains to go to. one of which was Killington, and the other was MT. Snow. i cant decide which one is better, any reasons why one is better then the other would be really helpful, also if there is a mountain better then both of those.

Killington is fun if you want to party and has A LOT more terrain. That also means it is huge. I know you were worried about losing your buddies, and going to Killington would severely increase the odds of that happening.
