Ski reports have been all across the board this week, from cream cheese to cold smoke. Both days were unexpectedly great! Wednesday was pouring rain in town and it never rained on the hill. Killington surprised them all with a consistant ‘hero, ego snow’. A 3″ surface of beautiful frosting on a firm, but not icy base. Lots of trails were opened up, the Canyon, Needles, and Bear all had great skiing. There were 10 ‘Tele’ skiers out having fun this week.
Peter has skied fresh powder every morning for the last 4 days at Pico. Yesterday he got 7″ on KA from the top, and this morning, Wrangler, Bronco, and Lower Pipeline all surprised him with fresh snow and awesome skiing! And he was still able to get the store open by 10!
I’ve been getting out the back country skis in the meadows down here in the valley, my Madshus Epoch’s with NNN BC boots and bindings have been perfect for the 2-3 inches of snow and occasional ‘fast grass’. It has been great for me to get out on the XC skis and get my heart rate up, enjoy the views and get a short work out in before work too.
Get out and enjoy the snow!
This was a stunningly beautiful morning in town, 11 degrees, and sunny with the snow sparkling like diamonds!
