Soft Packed powder up top, groomed runs were nice. Lots of guns going up high today. They had to shut them off down lower around 11 or so because temps were rising. Snow on the lower mountain was very granular. A few very styrofoamy runs that recently were blown but guns no longer going. Eastfall has some nice bumps forming on man-made packed powder.

Be real interesting to see how long any goodwill created by KMart's action will last w/ the pass holders.. Probably as long as any yankee fan's cheering for A-Rod once he feebly swings and misses for yet another K in a run scoring playoff situation!!
And not for nothing but Yankee fans have way more reason to gripe!!!
Skied yesterday if anyone's interested. Conditions were pretty good, crowded, but manageable... I predict a [email protected]%# today and tomorrow, though, especially if they don't get a ski route to the base open...
Wow, I was expecting them to have more than what they are offering after skiing there on Monday. Looks like today they are offering Rime, Reason, and one route to the base with walking required. I just got back from Sunday River and they have 3.5 distinct routes top to bottom including decently pitched Right Stuff. Killington got a massive jump but they need to cover a massive amount of acres to get early season on North Ridge AND go top to bottom. Plenty of elbow room at SR today as well, both lifts ski on. I wonder if K can keep top to bottom open with the warm up happening through Monday?
