    They could move the late closing to be back on Downdraft, as it's much narrower (which means less snow required), and holds snow much better than Superstar does.

    Lifts that run every day:
    I meant, which ones COULD be closed, not what they've actually done.

    The North Ridge/Glades triple could be closed, all it's terrain is served by the K1, and it's usually empty midweek.

    You could also close the Superstar Quad, although it would make some things a bit inconvenient (especially if you're coming off the Snowshed Crossover), you can access almost all of it's terrain from multiple other lifts.

    Other than that, there's nothing they can close without losing a lot of terrain. (Sunrise triple is required to run, so it can't be closed).

    1/2 the Killington threads are filled with posts complaining about Killington threads.
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.
