    Snowmaking isn't much of an issue at K.

    Vagabond, Great Bear and Northstar are pretty much guaranteed to get snowmaking coverage on it now that there's a six pack there.

    I'm sure other trails like conclusion will see better coverage on that side of the resort now too.

    I'm still surprised that they went with a six pack! I feel like they would have been fine with just a express quad bubble. Ramshead would've been a better contender for a six pack (I'm sure thats in the works either way)

    But I'm not complaining! So excited!

    Highline will still be closed for racing 85% of the time, conclusion has not been used for racing in 3 or 4 years. Nor have they made snow on it in 3 or 4 years, hopefully that changes now.

    True, but it seems like they still rely on some older tech guns that need a lot of compressed air, and they use those noisy diesel compressors to supply it.

    I like the addition of RFID. It will save having to stop in the ticket office to get a day ticket. I like being able to buy a ticket online and go straight to the lifts. Hopefully it will work seamlessly with the IKON pass if I get that.

    When they say their moving the Snowdon Poma to Rams Head and dedicating Swirl to training......Maybe that lift will access the true summit of Rams Head?

    Maybe...maybe not. Killington is aware people like natural trails.
