All I'm saying is that there's a contingent of internet geeks who ski Killington who LOVE to talk shit and bang on their chest about how awesome the place is. BEAST is BEST BROS!!!

Beast Bros we shall call them

The temps are right, so their beloved institution should fire up the guns.

It would seem a bit hypocritical for the Beast Bros to shit on places still making snow, when their own mountain refuses to do.

Personally, I would love to see them fire up the guns and dust the course prior to the event, but I think it would take a bunch of snow to make a difference. The Highline course is really steep, and it's likely to get skidded down to boiler pretty quickly. That's why I think early qualifiers would benefit the most. Hopefully they have plenty of choppers ready to do their thing!

Gonna be a half inch of rain at K today. Thats gonna melt all the snow that fell recently and bring highline back to brown. Since they will not be making snow, they are gonna have to push a LOT of snow around to make this course happen.

It's like you're actually rooting for this event to suck... it's a little sad.

It's not going to... but keep the dream alive!


If if you guys are setting up a campsite, looks like the KZone will have to also.
See u out there.

Who cares what you say?

No one bounded their chests. Just you bashing K.

Excellent moderating as usual, would expect nothing less.

Different thread

And fact.

You would be one of those K chest pounders

Your words from another thread

I'll take the fresh 5" of natural at K compared to 0" at SR.

It's interesting how Killington basically stopped making any snow after 2/29/16 after their electricity contract expired. Yeah, I know, Superstar has 100' of base and Kilington will be skiing until July 4th. So now for the first time in the history of the BMMC the event is not being held at Bare Mountain.

I thought it was interesting how they seemed to be touting the fact that holding the event in front of the K1 base area was a "historic" event in the latest Drift email they sent out yesterday.

Touting the event now being held on a trail that's currently more grass, rocks and mud than snow is pathetic.

It was unofficially held on SS a few years ago when K cancelled it. I believe 180 and his crew organized it.
