3:12 pm 02/10/16--It sure has been nice to see fresh flurries in the air and on the slopes, skiers and riders. Yesterday we reported the inch that lay on the snow stake, but anyone who skied on Bear Mountain found deeper pockets, and light snow in the forecast over the next few days could bring us a few more inches.
With cold temps hanging around, our snowmakers continue to pound Superstar, Snowshed, NeffLand, the lowest turns on Great Eastern and the bottom of the Canyon where Cascade meets Double Dipper. Dipper should be open later this week, but you can take a slide down a freshly groomed Cascade this morning to check out the progress.
In total, 62 of our 70 open trails were laced with corduroy overnight, including favorites like Caper, Rime, Needles Eye, Wildfire and Skyeburst.
Killington Parks meticulously maintains four terrain parks containing 80 features that break down like this: 19 features in Mouse Run Park, 25 in the Stash, 20 features in Timberline and another 16 in Easy Street and Lil Stash Progression Park. NeffLand is up next, expected to open this weekend with double digit features including fresh paint designs on everything, even the two new monster features going in the snow.
