I just got Killington's newsletter / e-mail "The Drift" They are officially opening Friday, and it looks like they'll have some nice features. Here is a copy/paste from their e-mail:
We kick off the 2007-08 ski and snowboard season Friday at 9 a.m. with up to 19 trails served by three lifts off Killington Peak and Snowdon Mountain. For the latest lift and trail offerings, check out the Snow Report!
For the past two weeks we have had hundreds of snowguns producing a massive amount of snow. In fact, we’ve been able to produce almost twice as much snow this year as we’ve produced for opening day the prior three years. And over the next 36 hours snowcats will be working the snow surface to provide you the best possible opening day conditions.
The K-1 Express Gondola, Northridge Triple and Snowdon Poma will operate on Friday, with the addition of the Snowdon Triple and Snowdon Quad on Saturday. The Reason Terrain Park at Killington Peak will also open on Friday with nine features, including a 28-foot down bar, 28-foot round bar and a hip/table jump. Featured trails include Downdraft Headwall, Rime, Reason, Upper East Fall, Chute and Bunny Buster.
If anyone ever told you that I give a damn, they damned well told you wrong!
The other day I was eating Starbursts and watching TV, and then a Starburst commercial came on. I was like, damn, that's profound.
the jump isnt much of a jump, or atleast it hasnt been in the past. dont count on it being like the mt snow jump cause theres no natural slope on the side for that...it does sound sick, and isnt there a railjam there this weekend? turkey jam or somthin? or is that next weekend?
I have to wait till 2pm to get my seasons pass tommorow. So gay.
Petey: Excuse me young Negro male, but may I stand here next to you with your "Crew" if you don't mind me saying.
D Jones: Nigga! You best back yo cracka ass off before I pulls out mah nine and cap yo ass, aight nigga?
Killington makes basically everything upper, middle, and lower, so that means 3 trails are like one. Thats 6 trails. I hope that the rain didn't melt too much. It turned to snow at around 1:00, and hopefully there will be more snow tonight.
It's not easy being white, It's not easy being brown,
It's not easy being bright, It's not easy having kids all over town.
i went to mount snow last weekend, it was pretty crouded, i'm sure killy will be the same, but mount snow only had the park from one lift and a different part of the mountain had the other trails so that kept a bunch of silly gooses out
its actually a dfd box. but the park is supposed to be different today from what it was yesterday. they just put it all together really quick so there building a better one even though the first one is perfect.
