Just curious, What was the "Special Gift" they the promised everyone for showing up the first day?Guy In Shorts 19 Oct Killington Report
Summit clouds gave way to a sunshine soaked day. Gondola line was rewarded with a early start at 9:30 as first day buffs were out. Mike Solimano was welcoming the giddy skiers with many retuning the love. Quick trip down the Peak walkway had us on the snow for the first time since June. Snow surface on Rime improved quickly with the skier traffic. Warming temps soon allowed the terrain to bump up. We hiked back up to the peak lodge for the lunch before our afternoon session. Morning lift line was gone as many made it a short day. Lots of fun bumps to play for the later day laps. As first days go this was one of the better ones.
Early Season Grade - B
Quote the Day - This is my favorite day of the year.

First bell has been best. Not a whole lot of softening going on as temps have been chilly. Mid winter quality carving surface has been the rule.GIS, Love reading your daily reports. We are thinking about heading up. Is it better get there in the morning to it groomed or better to wait mid day to soften up?
