    The wind is howling and the snow is drifting like crazy at the bottom of Pico. Don’t know how anyone could measure. Enough snow to make a snowball or two actually came in our back door through the cracks.

    It’s been snowing at the Pico base lodge since before 1:30 but by 4:00 had not really amounted to anything. Now it’s snowing at a good clip. We can see defined tire tracks where folks have driven in between the buildings. Seems to be just getting started.

    Hoping the crust was durable. Especially in the woods. Everything was covered so well it was unreal. At least if we can start with a frozen layer vs bare ground that will be a plus.

    The noise at the bottom of a Pico is really weird. It almost sounds like snowmaking air blowing through pipes. And then there is the constant loud crashes of snow unloading off the roofs. I’ve only heard the unloading this bad once. When we woke up that morning like 3 feet of snow was gone and the trails were almost bare.

    Skied a beautiful sunshine afternoon on soft bumps under the guns at killington Friday. Then skied in heavy wind driven Noreaster snow Saturday morning. Unfortunately a power line blew Saturday afternoon and so the mountain is on hold this morning until the repair is complete.

    The first half of March 2018 was unreal. Powder day after powder day. I skied steep tree chutes that dropped like slow elevators. We had one afternoon from 2-4pm where it snowed so hard that every run our tracks were completely covered while skiing in the thick woods. I’ve only seen conditions that good once or twice even though I’ve skied 50-100 days a year for the past 30 years.
  12. It’s August 1st. Time to start thinking about next season.

    Killington is doing really well with excellent skiing on Superstar but the top of the hill is getting a tad rocky. Definately expecting lift served skiing next weekend although there may be some walking involved at some point. Not sure about June.
