    Skiing on June 11, 1992 was amazing.

    I've never had such great time skiing in the East than at Killington in the 1990s.

    Racing June 1 slalom 1993: Lift ticket was free, if you competed you got a free voucher with non-blackout days for the following season and they gave you a June Slalom T-shirt...all this for free. A couple of June later, there wasn't any free t-shirts, it wasn't specific to the June event, lift ticket wasn't free, vouchers had blackout period (like After mid-December or after mid-April)...it was the start of the end and then they removed the Peak Double.

    Love the various climates you get to experience at K as one usually heads from the Bear side back over to the Killington Basin side. Too cold off of K1 - head to Bear. Too mushy at Bear, head over to Skye/Killington/Snowdon

    Love the vast assortment of expert falline skiing, and that on any given day you'll have your choice of steep bumps and steep groomers.

    Love how Powdr has reworked the trail network a bit to get rid of some of the long, traversing connector trails that had the unfortunate habit of interupting falline skiing, even if it means that getting back from Bear to the Killington Basin side isn't quite as easy as it used to be before the nets went up on Snowshed Crossover.

    Love riding the Bear Mountain Quad when OL is bumped up and getting to watch what is usually a decent sized assortment of GOOD bump skiers right there next to you!

    Killington’s a great gaper magnet and keeps the herds from heading farther north on Route 100

    She probably doesn't ski the trees with mandatory GS turns like HS does.....

    I think you are confused with your superlatives - Sunday River is home to White Heat - the “longest steepest widest lift-serviced trail in the east"

    If I recall correctly, one of them punctuated the statement differently so that it was true.

    I think it was:

    Killington: the widest, steepest, longest bump run in the east.

    Sunday River: the widest steepest lift serviced trail in the east.

    Sunday River also used to measure their pitch in degrees or percentage....whichever one gave the higher number and looked better.

    I agree. But it was even more fun in the old days before they added the groomed center to Outer Limits and you could watch the BAD bump skiers! Now they can cheat and just skid down the middle.
