    You indicated Killington would return to the first to open last to close mode of years past. The early open this season certainly made a big splash. In percentages, how much snow do you plan to blow on Superstar this season? 100% of Last year? 120%? What do you think of pole mounted automated fan guns lining a signature trail like that?

    I'd be curious about this as well... and would also add... would there ever be plans to do an indoor water park, similar to what Jay Peak has done, or that there are a copule of in North Conway.

    A lot of people were disappointed with the removal of the South Ridge Triple. Granted, it's never been a show piece, but it serves some of Killington's most unique terrain and provides a valuable link from Superstar, Skypeak, and Bear back into the Canyon. Without it, skiers are forced to ride the crowded K1, or make the slog across to Snowdon. Additionally, without that lift, getting out of Bear pretty much limits you to the Skye Peak Express.

    Your predecessor suggested a surface lift might someday go in there; but it seems unlikely that it would go high enough to allow Canyon access, furthermore it would require destroying the quirky character of "The Jug". The triple was literally the backbone Killington's "upper west side". Would you discuss your plans (if any) for the future of this area?

    Oh, just go ahead and ask about the Rogman Super Connect, you know you want to.....

    Why is your Express card on average $10-20 more expensive than your competitors? Plus your card is back end loaded. Most resorts offer the first day free, yours after 6 days?
