Looks like June turns are a distinct possibility this season.
Now that the end of the semester is over, I’m milking out of the season as long as I can. This is day #3 in May and its going to be the latest I’ve skied in the East since May 1985.
Two weeks since that memorable trip to Tuckerman, lift served skiing was still alive and well in Vermont. Another spring time tradition that includes late May bumps, corn and sun. I’ve only skipped one year of K May turns in the last 9 seasons.
Managed to get away from Montreal on Friday get enjoy the sun and get the crowds. Fellow Grad was in for a day trip, this was the first time I would ski with the one that would be later known as SuperNat. Bright blue sky on the drive down, as we were one hour away on Interstate 89, you could clearly get a good view on Superstar.
A beautiful day, long straight 207s Rossi 4S skis, bumps, t-shirt, excellent company and sun…what else to you need to know? Excellent coverage ski-in and ski-off the lift and only 9 days away from June.
Killington hadn’t made it to June since they switch spring time operation away from Killington Peak via the Peak double onto Skye Peak with the “new” Superstar served by a quad. A much warmer atmosphere to also more challenge to later in the season. It would seem that Killington can only make it to June if they stockpiled an increase amount of snow on Superstar. Looks like they made enough snow this year…see you in June. 😛
I didn’t that much this season as completing my thesis was my main focus. Today was day 32 of my season and hoping to get one more day in to close out the 1991-92 season.
