Perhaps, but the money going into lifts and South Ridge trail resurrection (however controversial to the vocal minority) this year certainly is trending towards revival. Won't see a full rebirth until (and if) that interconnect is ever built to replace lost acreage, but they're on the right track with the Cup, early and late openings, etc. If I was a K regular or called it home there is not much to complain about going into this year.
Just wondering when does Bear peak usually open and close for the season? I usually only ski K early or late season.
the disco biscuits are playing albany 11/23 and 11/24. i really wanted to go 11/23 and then ski the next day. killington is gonna be such a shitshow tho. i hope stratton is open and worthwhile that weekend.
Mount Snow will likely have significantly more terrain open than Stratton. Last year at that point in the year Snow had the most terrain in the east by a pretty wide margin. After the World Cup(see I'm not going off topic) Killington turns the guns on everywhere and caught up very fast and blew past Snow before Christmas.
Killington is definitely on the upswing. I just hope they don't price themselves out of the "cool" segment and start charging Vail prices. Killington does best when marketed as a place everyone can enjoy and not in an elitist way.
AFAIK they are still offering 2 for 1 & 50% off midweek tickets with deals through Ride and Ski NE Card and others. That's all I need them to keep doing. But then again 50% of $140 means I go somewhere else so window price needs to stabilize.
Pico is their hidden gem basically, although not so hidden on weekends, the interconnect is a dumb idea and I pity the fool who wastes their time and money on a Killington pass and takes 7 lifts to get over to Pico for 2 runs before heading back.
Well of course. Maybe if you start at Ramshead , Pico could be a better option than moving in the other direction on some days. Only benefits passholders though since day tickets at Pico are cheaper, you'd think most people would go in the opposite direction.
If they had the interconnect there still maybe a Pico only ticket but there might not be. But there would be no way that you could ski on the cheaper Pico ticket at K. If you wanted to ski both you would have to by the whole mtn ticket kind of like Sugarbush/Mt Ellen
