I have been to 4 WC cup races at Killington. I tried to ski at the 1st 1 I went to (it was actually on my birthday and I wanted birthday turns!) Got 1 run off of K1 down to the base that day in total(they were T2B then). Never even thought about trying to ski the next 3 times went. It can be done, but IMHO not worth the hassle as even when there's not a racer on course, the entertainment is still fun to take in.Auctioned off a kidney for a K1 parking pass for the World Cup on Sunday. Wondering if it is feasible to both watch the World Cup and take a few runs myself (assuming top to bottom is open by then) ? Or am I going to have to wait at a security checkpoint for an hour every time I try to re-enter the grandstand ? Is re-entry even allowed ? How is it walking up the grandstand stairs in ski boots ? Any concerns about theft of equipment with the huge crowd ?
Get a ski lock they’re ~$10 and you’ll never have to worry about theft
Ski Totes are even older . I kept the cable with the combo lock that came with it when the plastic part broke. I string the cable through the ski brakes and around the ski rack when I use my newer skis. I don't lock my 20+ year old Volants. If someone steals them...oh well an excuse for newer skisOld school!
That opening (“Howdy Beast Fan’s”) is not grammatically correct. There should not be a “ ‘s “.I've been enjoying KillingtonZone's fury over the Killington snow report starting with "Howdy Beast Fans". After changing it up for the last few days, the howdy is back (and looks like they're making fun of those posters, given the winking emoji) and they're already complaining about it.

I look at Kzone folks, like NY Yankee fans... There's no denying their historical greatness. They have an arrogance about themselves for the love of their "team". But their "team" can go through ebbs in their performance and when that happens, they can't accept reality.. sooner or later their team will rebuild to the top of the heap via spending a bunch of money like few others can thoughKZone vs the Killington Locals FB group is such a funny comparison as well. One is sycophantic Jerries while the other is nihilistic doomers
Split your skis and make sure no one sees you Walk in the lodge and then walk back out and look for folks lingering and eying your stuff. Never had my skis walk away. Did lose a boot holder at Cannon many years ago.
