Killington Favorite Trails?

I'm still coming down off my Killington high, and I wish I would have asked this before our trip, but as the kids and I are talking about our favorite trails (we all agree on Racer's Edge), I'm wondering what the Divas favorite trails are?

I found myself avoiding some black diamonds because I didn't want to be surpised to find moguls on the hill, but in general, I did enjoy the black diamonds a bit more than many of the blue hills. Now I'm disappointed I didn't go down more of them. I did have a blast on Bittersweet and Skylark, though.

When we go back, which hills should I not miss?

My favorite cruisers are Needles Eye and Cruise Control. For weekday fun, I like to play in the Stash, but it's too crowded on the weekends. It's a terrain park, but it always seems to have nice soft snow, dipping in and out of the trees.

We had a blast over in the easy terrain park. We were also playing in those trees for a few hours. We did not venture onto superstar, but now we were wishing we did. Does that one have moguls?

There are always some moguls off to the side on the lower part, sometimes moguls on the last steep section.

The cruisers over at Bear Mountain are nice. All of them.

Yes! What are the double blacks like over there? I couldn't gather the nerve to try any of them, but the others were gorgeous!

The double blacks at Bear? Outer Limits is totally bumped and very long. And to be honest, I haven't skied Devil's Fiddle.

It looks like they have renamed the Mouse Trap?

I’m not a black diamond skier. I do enjoy Bittersweet, Cruise Control, Needle’s Eye, and all those trails from the Snowdon chair. Solid blue, I guess! Also Rime, Reason, and the easier part of Easy Street!

Rime and Reason are good trails to lap with the triple right there to avoid long lines at the base. I also like Bunny Buster on Snowdon and Header on Ramshead is an easy blue I think is good for cruising and practicing turns. :race:

Rime and Reason are especially good now - they are the only ones that are open right now! :smile:

During regular season, I enjoy skiing the Bear Claw and Skyeburst on the Bear Mountain. An issue with them though is that they seem to be only good in the early morning, and tend to turn really bad closer to noon. When I skied them the first time in early afternoon, I thought I found myself mistakenly skiing an unmaintained mogul run. The snow waves were so big that I have almost considered taking my skis off, believing that I would not survive those moguls :smile:
The next early morning I tried those runs first and was pleasantly surprised about how nicely skiable, even and hard they are :smile:

It is my experience that Skyeburst (or was it Skyelark?) is a death trap in the afternoon. My decidedly early intermediate status at the time may have affected this opinion.
