whats going on in Vermont? I’m not reading good things lately as far as snow conditions. I’m coming up for a weekend of shredding 1/25-27.
I needs boots-on-the-ground recon of snow conditions and forecasts. Our plan is Bolton, Pico, and maybe some Killington action Sunday am before flying home.

Pico sucks so dont go there. the snow is decent but not as good as it was 2 or 3 weeks ago. snow conditions should be vermont good by the time you come upJanuary 18, 2013 at 7:32 am #46931
It’s been spring in New England for the past week or two, but it started to cool down again over the last few days and we got a little snow.January 18, 2013 at 12:41 pm #46965
Pico sucks? Interesting. Elaborate on that. What does it lack that you seek? What does it have that you dislike?January 21, 2013 at 7:56 am #47061
What type of riding do you do or plan on doing mainly?January 21, 2013 at 9:25 am #47067
Maybe I’m biased because I learned to snowboard at Pico, but that place does NOT SUCK. Sure, it doesn’t have a park, but it also doesn’t have liftlines and if you explore a little there are some of the most fun birch tree runs ever. If it snows, always go to Pico instead of killington. You won’t be disappointed.January 21, 2013 at 11:58 am #47075
@admin- Every Vermont resident (current or former) that I’ve asked about this unanimously says go to Pico for those very reasons.
@tomgnarly- we like to ride everything, with maybe a little more emphasis on park. So the Killington parks, particularly the Stash park, do have some serious appeal. We also have 2 skiers in the group, I don’t know if they care about parks or not.January 21, 2013 at 12:03 pm #47077
in related news, weather.com forecast looks good and snowy for this week
also, anyone been to Planet Rock in Barre? this is a bachelor party trip, after all.January 22, 2013 at 8:57 am #47115
If you are in VT and like parks at all you def have to check out Mount Snow…simply because they have Carinthia, an all mountain park.
It is kind of the place to be in Southern VT. Laid back attitudes all around (except on Long John, that run is for beginners so you get yelled at for just cruising)January 22, 2013 at 9:36 am #47127
if you’re even a little bit interested in riding park, go to Mount Snow. Carinthia is bomb.January 22, 2013 at 2:03 pm #47191
Sugarbush has the best of everything and is close to Planet Rock. Don’t expect much talent at the club and be prepared to come out smelling like low grade box.January 22, 2013 at 2:31 pm #47192
Fuck yeah, I love Sugarbush. I was a local in the early ’00s, before they had even one single park rail. Fuckin’ loved it. Even got the mandatory Bad Liver Valley resident DWI.
And the scent of low grade box won’t be an issue since we’re going there straight from riding Boltneck. A little of the old “wash your hair with a handful of parking lot snow’ and it’s on to tittay citay. I did try to scare the crew away from going there, but they like a challenge.January 26, 2013 at 10:10 am #47477
Hole Shot Tour is coming to Killington from Feb 4-6 – ski cross, and snowbdcrossJanuary 28, 2013 at 12:09 pm #47531
Bolton was fun
Killington was better
Planet Rock was god awful
