Just another reminder for me for when to stay away from Killington.
I stay away on weekends generally but hardly anyone skiing during the cup, we were getting right on the gondola and had great views of the race

Right where I want to be
Don’t be a douche bag. This is a cool event to check out.
Not being a douche just wouldn’t want to deal with the traffic/parking and while I love skiing I do not like ski racing. I used to stay/ski at K on thanksgiving weekend but not since the race has been there. I will head somewhere else and let the ones that like this sort of thing have their fun.

It’s a great time, beautiful women all around and we get right on the gondi without any line, plenty of snow, parking was easy
Wait, you mean there aren't beautiful women all around every weekend?

yes theirs beautiful women there all the time, with the border situation they will not be able to drive down only fly I believe so that might negate a good amount of the crowd , sweet french speaking blondes were all around the snow was great as well
Wait, you mean there aren't beautiful women all around every week

I wonder what the "Dynamic Pricing" will be for the FastTrack Lanes that weekend..... ;)
Will be interesting to see - in my experience when we have ventured out to ski a bit on that weekend the base area where the race is happening is usually mobbed, but the trails are mostly empty.

Miss that view. Got to attend the WC two years in a row. Pretty fun event if you can deal with the crowds and long lines for beer. The skiing is usually blah that time of year anyway. Just enjoy the party.

It's a pressure test, it's nearly 40 degrees at the Peak. Game on is later this week.

Edit: I am told they will likely run tonight up top. Seems weird with the forecast through the week, but they do love to burn money lol.
