    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28

    Great news! And hopefully the deep base on Superstar will mean skiing past Memorial Day for the next two years...

    Glad they keep it for the next 2 years, need to show off the fancy new K1 lodge when it is finished for 20-21 season!

    Bumping this thread, since ticket sales for grandstand and VIP seating as well as parking passes went live at 9AM this morning.

    You don't need to buy tickets (it sure does help IMHO having done it both with and without grandstand seats and parking passes), and it's just an incredibly electric vibe when the best women's alpine racers in the world crest the top of "Preston's Pitch" on Superstar and come into view of the finish area!

    Is it possible to ski while the World Cup is going on ? Any recommendations on where to boot up ? And is it possible to ski over to the grandstand and rack your skis somewhere ? Seems like it will be a zoo around the K1 lodge, especially with the new construction going on this year.

    You can definitely ski while WC is going on, last year it was North Ridge into the Canyon and Snowden IIRC. Good November last year though, I don't believe there was nearly as much the previous years available. I think a few years they were only skiing up on North Ridge during WC so if that's the case, you wouldn't be able to ski up to the stands in any fashion. Not sure about booting up, likely at your car as there will be limited Trailside or lodge side parking, especially with the K1 lodge construction this year.

    Doable? yes

    Personally, and take this from the perspective of a ski racing fan, with 2 kids who are ski racers and have been involved in the pre-race parade of young ski racers that they have, I tried the ski/spectate thing the 1st year of the world cup races at Killington. I haven't wanted to try and do the ski/spectate thing the last 2 years I've been, and don't plan on it this year either. Too much going on, and in the case of my family and our friends who also attend, too much socializing, to want to deal with bringing our gear, and tending to it while the races are on, for skiing on what it typically limited early season terrain and Thanksgiving weekend crowds. That's just my 2 cents on it

    I suppose if mother nature has been nice and a bunch of natural has fallen, that one could skin Pico, but lift served there during the World Cup weekend isn't likely to be a possibility
