Spring is the best time for those trips West. This was taken at Squaw last April.

Killington Gondola

For me half the fun is the views. Another bonus of being in the mountains for a day of fun.

Early season skiing requires a hike back up to the peak to get the gondola ride back down. Won’t be long before we’ll be skiing to the bottom! For now enjoy the ride after a satisfying day of exercise and fun with friends!

November 6 was my first Wednesday out and it was about as good as it gets for a first day! A half dozen ‘Tele’ friends of 25 + years of Wednesdays were there in the parking lot ready to enjoy the day with. We have a special comradarie that only skiers know.

The first turns blew me away with the view to the south east from the peak, always beautiful, but this day was especially stunning layers of peaks in multiple shades of blues that were gorgeous! It is one of my favorite parts about being a skier. Being on top of our world! So lucky!

The snow conditions were awesome! Soft cream cheese, easy skiing, hero snow to start my season. Warm temps in the 50′s, full sun, no snow guns, and no crowd. Killington delivered the best conditions possible for early season skiing. Yea us! It was great to be back on the hill again playing with our buds. I did 12 runs! Not bad for a first day! Just like riding a bike!
