    They have added to it, can now see guns going on upper Right Stuff and over toward Locke from the top of Barker. Hard to tell if it's just Jungle Road or Ecstacy too.

    All these mountains opening up this weekend equals a big loss for Killington in early season day tickets sold as they usually have a 2-3 week head start on most Northeast mountains

    Yup I bet that is the case but there are still loads of faithful regulars that will only go there. They will do fine.

    I think its jungle Road. Short narrow trail that lets Barker be used for everything quickly. I had heard Wed over the weekend. I thought that was pushing it, but the humidity looks low. I am just going to wait for Friday.
    Skiing is my addiction.

    I go to bed tonight knowing that I can ski almost any day, and every weekend, from now until May.

    It's a beautiful feeling, isn't it? Especially if you have a birthday in the spring like me, you can say "There won't be a weekend I don't ski till I'm x-years-old!
