4:33 pm 02/09/16--It sure was nice waking up to a fresh coating of snow this morning, skiers and riders. We reported the inch that laid on the snow stake, but anyone who skied on Bear Mountain today found fluff covering their boots as they linked turns.
With cold temps hanging around, our snowmakers are going to 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 in the morning to check out the progress.
In total, 62 of our 70 open trails will be laced with corduroy on Wednesday morning 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.
