The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

Amazing weekend at Killington!  The crowd that showed up was close to the size of a mid winter weekend but with far fewer base areas and parking lots.  With 4 lifts servicing an enormous amount of open terrain the trails and glades were not crowded and the lift lines were manageable. Parking was at a premium and many folks got a good warm up hiking to get up into the basin.  The weather was beautiful with blue sky and slowly softening snow.  The most amazing is how good the snow cover is.  Simply epic skiing!

It certainly all came together last weekend.  Perfect storm of the very FIRST spring skiing and riding of the entire season (aside from February, lol) following a week of several snow/wintry events.  Places like Stowe and Smuggs missed out because weekends like that don't come together very often. 

Just make one of Saturday or Sunday overcast, even with the same temperatures and snow, and we'd see just how important sunshine is this time of year.  The sun shining probably resulted in the difference of THOUSANDS of skiers at Killington.   It's crazy to me how that happens, when it all lines up there are so many factors that can come together to produce a huge weekend.
