Is this is a trick? Or is this a treat? We were soon about to find out…
a trick or a treat?

Some neighborhoods tend to give out the full size candy bars, and some don’t. We went looking for the full size candybars.

Look. I’m not going to sit here and tell you these are the best pictures ever. I know they’re not my best. It was snowing a blizzard, it was dark, it was cold, it was windy and the filter on my camera shattered. But you know what? We had a lot of fun eating full size candy ba—I mean, SKIING POW on October 27, 2011.

Full TR later once we see what the rest of this week brings!

QUICK EDIT: Just editing this really quickly at lunch to say “Apparently the ‘K‘ in OKtober doesn’t stand for HiKing Killington…” This was spotted at the base area today. Too bad for hikers.. The good news for everyone else is: KILLINGTON OPENS TOMORROW!!

    When it was blowing 34 F down here along the coast I figured something’s going goin on in them hills. I knewed it! Looks messy, which makes it that more challenging, right? As dangerous/sketchy? Any p-tex left? thanks for the effort and sharing.

      I mean “nice work” with the pics, not “nice work dropping the camera”. Oy.

    Regarding the closed signs, basically they just mean stay away from Killington crew and equipment. We spoke with some K workers who in a very friendly way asked us to be safe, avoid K workers, crew, and gear, etc. No one ever said not to ski or asked us to leave. Again, I want to say again, the K folks we talked to were VERY friendly. They never said it or gave approval of our hiking efforts, but they never said not to. I give K an A+ on providing unofficial access despite their past stance on the activity.

      Very good point Steve. Thanks for making it. Kudos to K for opening!!!

      Glad to hear your experience was positive.

      Looks like I need to retract that statement. While skiing at Cannon today, I spoke with someone that was turned away at the base of Killington on Friday just one hour after we had a pleasant conversation with a different Killington associate. It seems that either Killington’s earned turn policy is inconsistently enforced or we just got likely. Either case is cause for alarm and I withdraw my A+ for K on this topic. :(
