Skyeship at K. Where I start and end my day there, it's turn station, and who doesn't like 1200 FPM.
Did you take the pics & frame?
The view of Skye Peak and the rest that you can see once you crest the pitch on Stage 1 is pretty amazing.Skyeship is fun. I always liked the 20 minute ride from the bottom to start the day. Eat a sandwich, get gear on, etc. Then, out of almost nowhere, you're dead center of Killington, and the fact that you can get anywhere on the hill from the top station.
Gondolas are only good for the first ride of the day or after a break. Hate having to take my skis off.
Really? Which ones pray tell.I dont mind taking skis off at all.
My issue with gondolas is all too often I believe there's absolutely no reason for them, and they exist primarily as a marketing tool. Many of our eastern gondolas IMHO fall in this category. But there are some places where they really make sense.
