Has anyone actually been able to ski to their parking lot at Waterville?

The map at the parking at Waterville shows you a trail that you can go down on to reach any of their 9 parking lots.
But when I tried to at the end of skiing the other day, the segment that started from the base didn't seem to have enough inclination to give you any momentum.
I was parked in Lot 7 and was trying to ski down from the skier's right at the base.

I skied right to the car in lot 4 on my one visit this season. No issues. Haven't tried the other trail to the lower lots.

Thanks for the confirmation. Maybe I was looking at the wrong path. I'll give it another try on my next visit.
I skied to Lot 7 last weekend. The trail actually starts from the top of the Lower Meadows lift, to skier's right, with a sign that says "Sno-Vehicles Only." Now, notwithstanding why they couldn't fit the W in 'snow" on the sign, the trail into the woods was groomed, adequately pitched, and once past the maintenance facility (for those sno-vehicles) joined the access road on the back-side of the parking lots. It appears they plowed and groomed a snow base on 50% of the road. Just watch out for cinders tilled in with the snow!
