    Haha. The Bear mountain condo project just popped into my head last night. I was thinking how amazing it would be to look out in the early morning at devil's fiddle with the sun coming up.

    Mount Snow will likely have significantly more terrain open than Stratton. Last year at that point in the year Snow had the most terrain in the east by a pretty wide margin. After the World Cup(see I'm not going off topic) Killington turns the guns on everywhere and caught up very fast and blew past Snow before Christmas.

    I'm going to bet he mentioned Stratton instead of Snow because he has an Ikon pass.

    You think so? Interesting. Obviously it has been a while since I was at Killington, so I am watching from afar. Interested in other comments as to this.

    Killington is definitely on the upswing. I just hope they don't price themselves out of the "cool" segment and start charging Vail prices. Killington does best when marketed as a place everyone can enjoy and not in an elitist way.

    AFAIK they are still offering 2 for 1 & 50% off midweek tickets with deals through Ride and Ski NE Card and others. That's all I need them to keep doing. But then again 50% of $140 means I go somewhere else so window price needs to stabilize.

    Pico is their hidden gem basically, although not so hidden on weekends, the interconnect is a dumb idea and I pity the fool who wastes their time and money on a Killington pass and takes 7 lifts to get over to Pico for 2 runs before heading back.

    Actually, if you parked at k1 or ramshead (where majority of people begin their day) you would only have to take 1 or 2 lifts, not 7.

    Well of course. Maybe if you start at Ramshead , Pico could be a better option than moving in the other direction on some days. Only benefits passholders though since day tickets at Pico are cheaper, you'd think most people would go in the opposite direction.

    Better off avoiding that mess, they're 2 fine ski areas with different appeals and neither one is short on terrain for a day of skiing. K pass lets you ski Pico anyway if you have multiple days, just park there one of the days.

    If they had the interconnect there still maybe a Pico only ticket but there might not be. But there would be no way that you could ski on the cheaper Pico ticket at K. If you wanted to ski both you would have to by the whole mtn ticket kind of like Sugarbush/Mt Ellen

    As soon as I started reading your response I immediately thought of the Sugarbush/Mt Ellen example. Mt Ellen only tickets are still available for less than a Sugarbush one. But if you want to take the Slide Brook lift from Mt Ellen over to Sugarbush you have to have a regular Sugarbush ticket and not a Mt Ellen-only one. K/Pico could easily do that same setup where you need the "higher-end" ticket to be able to get on the Interconnect lift from the Pico side.



    Of course all that said, I'm still in the camp that doesn't want to see the two areas connected and think Pico is great kept separately (as long as it is financially viable to keep it separate).
