    Dave,

    It's posts like this one that really annoy people. It's not so much the Debbie Downer nature of it, but it's almost as if you are actively rooting for negative outcomes in the East. You've done it All. Season. Long. whenever things look unfavorable from 2000 miles away. Basically the appearance is trolling.

    I know you've expressed​ that's not your intent, but it sure comes across that way.

    Such comments are a far departure from when you lived and skied here and were always positive thinking about the New England ski scene.

    What gives?

    Had to be there.

    Woops! Read the report wrong. I support the decision as others have said. Walking on or off the lift is no prob

    You have about half a hand free. Or drink it while skiing on the way down!

    Wouldn't Superstar make some nice easy access patch skiing without the lift. It's maybe not worth driving several hours but I would think you could pull your car right up to the bottom, load up some beers, hike up to a good patch of snow and just lap it all day.

    To me that sounds like a nice mellow day. Do you really need the lift at this point?

    I think I'll still head up tomorrow. The one positive to no grooming is that I don't need to wake up at 3:45 AM to get 1st chair. I'll probably shoot to get on the road by 7 AM and on the mountain by 10:30 AM or so.

    I suppose I could use plenty of work on my mogul riding anyways! Haha

    I have skied Killington every spring to the end and I know the pattern. I am just calling it as I have experienced it. Because I am in Colorado should not make a difference. I am not talking smack. Once they get to walk on walk off they generally do not make it much further that is fact. Do I want them to hit June 1st absolutely I am a Killington fan. I think it would be cool.

    The snow depth right now is deeper than I have ever seen at this time over the whole length of the run.

    SKI THE EAST!!!!!!
