Snowboarding at Killington
I just returned from a 3 day trip to Killington for some sweet snowboarding. Kierie, Andras, Andrea and myself reduced the entire Killington Mountain area to a smoldering crater. We shredded that thing so hard that 200 years from now children will be singing songs about our deeds. Andras drove us up and we all stayed at a B&B called Snowed Inn. One thing I must mention about Snowed Inn: They served Log Cabin MAPLE FLAVORED SYRUP at breakfast. This is UNACCEPTABLE and probably illegal to do at a Vermont bed and breakfast. I went down the street to a market/deli to purchase some real VT maple syrup for the remainder of the trip.
Everything else was great about the trip. It was mad cold on Friday, with a high of 6 degrees. It was also Kierie and mine 2nd time snowboarding. But it was amazing, our skills grew each day. We started the trip on slow Green learning runs, and by the end of the trip we were making full runs down from the peak of Killington mountain on "tough" intermediate Blue trails. The photos tell the rest of the story.
