    new k-1 lodge, new north ridge quad at K + enhanced snowmaking at pico

    https://www.killington.com/the-mount...n-improvements

    K-1 lodge needs the facelift. tis a shithole.



    the quad will ease november lines, but put 25% more people on some already crowded slopes

    pico snowmaking is a great thing.

    overall, pleased.

    The new K1 should facilitate better flow from Superstar to K1 and vice versa as well with it being positioned in the current drop off zone adjacent to the K1. Will also be nice that the lodge is on the same level as the K1. New Quad in NorthRidge is needed, the current triple is their oldest lift. Nothing said an increase in skier capacity though that is likely. But it may not be 25% more, they could increase chair spacing and decrease total chairs. That would make it less likely for stops.

    I only use Skyeship base but the biggest plus to me of the new KBL is moving it downhill. That outta make that slog much better.

    Funny, parked at Skyeship yesterday. Would be nice if they could fix the overhang roof to prevent the rainstorm between the lodge entrance and the gondola from snowmelt on the roofing.

    I said hello to south ridge!

    I haven’t skied that terrain in 15 years probably

    Roundabout Glade and Jug>Handle were great, and it’s awesome how I can take the chair back up and pop over to anarchy so easily

    Yep, was great Saturday and Sunday. They definitely needed a lift back at that location. I hated that particular lift when it was at Snowden, but I love it now at the South Ridge. It seems faster too for some reason and wind hasn't been a problem.
