On your first trip to Killington, you should expect to waste some time traversing. I would absolutely recommed Killington for its size and terrain, but I think the layout is confusing. I spent a lot of unnecessary leg strength and polling time getting navigating to "Most Difficult" runs and glades that weren't open. The grooming report did not seem to jibe with on-mountain conditions.
But that sounds more negative than it should. I had a great trip with all conditions, and began each day within the first 10 chairs. Midweek is the ONLY way to ski IMHO, which trip after trip bolsters.
Day 1: Cold, then warming nicely with 2 in. snow during the day, and another 3 in. overnight. No lift lines anywhere. Nice bumps, long uncrowded runs.
Above the foggy valley, Day 2 was bluebird powder day not typical in the East. Looking back down the gondola, other peaks looked looked like Carribean islands, green and sloping out of blue white sea mist. Only disappointments were closed runs I would have expected open in late Jan.
Day 3: A big thaw and overnight rain with more in the forecast and 20+ MPH winds had me contemplating skiing my 3 of 4 day licket tomorrow. I decided to go for it and am so glad I did. Fantastic spring conditions and deep granular snow carved like butter. The fog had inverted, with visibility near the top dropping to two chairs -- the one in front of you and the vague outline of the chair in front of it. Classic mountain streams emerged, tumbling down granite rocks. Very beautiful.
Hard to say whether it was rain or heavy fog, but visibility got very bad by day's end. I'm guessing that gusts at the peak of K1 35 MPH or more. Makes you really appreciate the gondola.
Anyway, after three great days skiing, in rapidly deteriorating conditions, navigating to Ramshed was arduous. A couple wrong turns had me overshoot in both directions. Still, with great effort comes great reward. I shall never forget that "High Road" is the only way back to Ramshed.
