    Could not agree more. And the trails are freakin' empty anyway. No one would miss the place.

    Which one is the sarcasm emoticon again?

    My point is not that we need to completely silence a voice here. My point is that HS is overshadowing most of the other voices with regards to Killington. By allowing him to start so many negative threads and then compound it with so many negative posts, well, it seems like HS is censoring the rest of us. Or at least drowning us out.

    I do not like seeing my favorite mountain, or the people that ski there, repeatedly insulted. That is why I finally joined the forum instead of just lurking. I just think that the moderators could try a little harder to moderate the HS/K issue. Currently it has really gotten out of hand.
    You don't understand the nefarious logic HS is utilizing- he thinks that by bashing K on internet forums he can somehow shame them into making the improvements he seeks. He bashes them but never seems to go anywhere else. It may be manipulative and even a bit odd, but his reverse psychology shows how much he cares.

    I didn't take her comments as a cheap shot. She was simply stating that the member was new and it's kind of bad form to come in and start gun blazing and publicly chastise Nick and the moderators on how we run the forum. It was also a suggestion on her part for the member to recognize that forum moderation is rarely agreed upon by all members. We do the best we can and quite honestly, the site has been as "peaceful" lately as it has ever been. This despite this season being the most frustrating weather wise that any skier or rider can ever remember, which is kind of surprising as skiers and riders openly vent their frustrations loudly.

    I wasn't suggesting for you to report her post, though you could have if you had a problem with it. I was more making a general statement that if you have a problem with a member or comment on the site, report the post, send a private message to one of us and we'll look into it.

    I'm just calling them out on every poor decision they make .

    Oh sorry, didn't realize I was giving you too much credit.

    Free lunch to all season pass holders yesterday was a very nice gesture on their part. I just wish I would've known about it ahead of time since I was there but elected to drive home yesterday instead. After a few days of warm weather & glorious sunshine the grey skies & cooler temps yesterday made me decide to leave. That plus rain forecasted for today. If I would have known I probably would've stayed or at least skied since my mid-week pass was being honored yesterday also. Another thing I didn't know until I got home. Even though I didn't take advantage of the offering it's nice to know they did something positive for their pass holders.

    Yes, the lunch and raffle was nice. They seemed to do good business at the ubars.

    Perfect illustration of how last minute and under conveyed this event was.

    I'm glad they did it, but next year have adequate quanties (When I went through at 1pm the drinks were down to 1 choice and the dessert was all gone... no dessert is a cardinal moose sin) and think about how to best handle the volume. Add some tables out in the snow. Keep the line moving. Put it in the drift and on the website next year more than a week in advance. I skied instead of hanging around for the raffle, but I heard there was a lot of items and a lot of winners. I heard nothing but good things about the raffle.

    So thanks for lunch and Joey. Next year make more dessert, and blow more snow all year long and all mountain wide to keep up with your competition. Lots of customers had to go elsewhere this spring, and that can't be a good thing. This Monday would be good practice.....

    For now conditions look favorable to blow snow throughout the week at night. Jay and Sunday River have stated they will make snow, Killington has an opportunity to do the same. They surprised us with the early opening, let's see what they do now. I for one am not rushing to buy my pass for next year.

    Killington could come out looking really good in all of this. They have stated multiple times that they will stay open through April, weather permitting.



    Well, if the weather permits them to make snow, they do it and they make it through the month, that's really sticking to their promises beyond what most customers would expect.
