Guns have been set up on Hotshot since the first week in November. Same with Spring Fling. They may have just opted to not blow seeing all the warm and rain in the forecast. But they was a couple of windows that were in the lower twenties on the hill for a few days.
Good temps forecast starting this afternoon until wednesday morning then back in the shitter again.

I drove down to Kmart this morning. They did an amazing snow making job. I skied onto the chair for 19 of my 20 runs in 4 hours and 20k vert. The minor crowd dissipated by 11. Pretty much low level intermediate but it was great to feel normal again. I hope that today was the beginning of a great season for all of us- in state or out.

Most wore masks even when skiing. They have a parking reservation system that is pretty easy to use. The snow was pretty soft, never got sloppy despite the warm temps and wind. A couple ways down via three lifts on two seperate areas. Each run had good to edge no rocks, water bars filled in - top to bottom. I heard that they covered everything from zerro to skiable in 72 hours - most impressive for this 34x sugarbush season pass holder. For what Killington is they have a great execution of a good product- no complaints and the lift never stopped all day- go figure.
Seems like they run into an issue every early season. Low water, pipe burst etc. It's always the same problem. The only difference this year, we don't have Win to keeps us up to date.

Not sure if anyone is listening over there,... but it would be nice if they could fix the webcams.
