    It amazing how nice things have recovered when the prediction was expected to be the wet stuff. That seemed to have happened time and time again. Get let down with forecasts then boom - snow. It seems like overall this turned out to be a darn good season back east. Looks pretty sweet.

    You're right about the forecast vs reality at least in my own personal experience. I also think it really depended on where you were skiing. The northern mountains did well overall by avoiding much of the rain this season. Areas down south seemed to struggle .

    If the temps were colder this season would have been unbelievable as it seems like the pattern was quite active.

Probably won't have a chance to get in/over there until next season at this point because this weekend will most likely not be good coverage in there with the warmth.
    The area seems to be roped off a lot also.
    If the snow is good the terrian off the canyon chair is some of the best Killington has to offer.

    Yep that's Big Dipper (with the different lighting). It's more a glade than tree/wood skiing. The top part is more woodsy if you take the rabbit hole entrance further down Great Northern rather than heading in right next to Double Dipper.

    The other woods are mostly near Roundabout but I was also skiing some unmarked woods off the top of Snowden.. the short ones that take you into a power line heading towards the North Ridge chair.

    FWIW Killington has amazing tree skiing, only problem is some of the best like Julio/Jaunita/Anarchy aren't open very often. If that matters to you.

    I'm always trying to explore. I like a nice wide glade compared to trees/woods, the super tight trees just aren't what I'm hunting.

    I think we might be going to Killington on Friday, but I doubt that area will be open or might not even have enough coverage by then after this crazy warm-up.

    You might be able to duck into the trees next to Superstar. Tends to last a little longer there due to snowmaking blowover.

    I think the best wide glade at Killington is also one of the easiest, Squeeze Play on Ramshead. It's pretty open in there, fun stuff though.

    Was the best weekend of the 16/17 season on the east coast. Actually had me fall in love with eastern skiing again. Something needed after the 2015-2016 disaster.

    It was very good, but I'm thinking you are forgetting the week in February just before the blow torch when it snowed practically every day and most places in New England picked up 50+ inches of snow. Jay cashed in with almost 100 that week.
