Comments CommentsTook advantage of a limited time $75 offer (plus tax, included lunch) to check out this private ski area located between Killington and Okemo, formerly known as Roundtop and Bear Creek. Absolutely lucked out with weather and conditions.

The area is closed during the week and is only open to members and occasionally a few paying customers, so the whole place was untracked at opening this morning, despite it being half a week since the blizzard. My guess is there were about 50 skiers on the entire mountain, which is solely served by a double chairlift (about a 11 minute ride for about 1,100 vertical feet).

Just about every trail except Woodpecker was groomed, but only a couple passes each. As a result, there was a nice lane of corduroy and a ton of untracked powder. There are also a lot of glades and glade-like trails throughout the mountain, some not too steep, others with cliffs (one such glade-like trail was closed, the only closure of note).

Even when we called it a day around 1:00, we were still hitting fresh corduroy and untouched lines of powder. The powder was light and a good foot plus deep in the morning, but the warming temperatures around lunch time started to moisten it up a bit.

Overall, the terrain is generally intermediate, except for some short steeps in the woods and a few short steeps on the upper lift line. The trails have fun twists and turns as well. A highlight for me was the Rollercoaster trail, which is one snowcat wide and is a long series of sharp switchbacks.

The weather and conditions definitely took this to another level, but whereas I thought this one be a one-and-done thing, I could definitely see myself returning for a similar deal/day.
