Killington - Thursday - June 1st - 2017

Had to ski Killington - Whats left of the Superstar Glacier - on Thursday, June 1st 2017. Killington provided Free lift tickets to all and gave out 250 commemorative Tshirts - Thank You to Killington. Had to do a small hike top and bottom too and from the Superstar Quad. Went with Cornhead and Glade R. Met up with Chuck and Mad Pat Ski. Skiing was really really Good. Snow coverage was good and I only put 2 small nicks on the bottoms of my ski bases. Specials at the Umbrella Bar were all draft beers $4.00 and all grill items $4.00. Was a memorable and satisfying late spring ski day.

That looks epic.

Hiking the head wall is always a PITA. I took six runs and called it a day.  It was a great time to be had by all, and I'm so pleased that Killington was able to pull it off.

 Great job with the photos! They really capture the essence of the day.

Don't know the date of this photo. But compared to this, 6/1/17 at Killington was Epic!!!

Half of those pictures look really cool.  The other half look like gaper central.  I wish I lived nearby.

This looks like a jr. high school dance where there are a bunch of guys standing around but too afraid to approach the girls (in this case, the snow).
