Comments CommentsDid the $20 2 hour end of night ticket on the way back from Killington.

Nice packed powder conditions, but only two ways down open tonight. Lots of lights out, and the T-Bar was closed due to another deropement.

The two choices from the top were Ambergris and Dorsal, which were both nice packed powder. The lift unload and the turnoff for Dorsal were very dark. Beyond the Dorsal turnout, many lights were out, so Spout and The Face were closed.

The narrow chute at the bottom of Amebergris and Dorsal was ungroomed and not well lit, so it was pretty sketchy. Below that chute, one could either go down lower Spout (wall to wall coverage) or cross over to Scrimshaw.

With the T-Bar down, the two trails it serves were inaccessible (as was Lower Face, since Upper Face was closed).

The two tiny beginner lifts and slopes were open.

Sad to see the continued issues with the new lift, as well the perennial lighting issues (in addition to many bulbs being out, there was also a live bulb laying in the snow on The snowboarder opted to board the open trails with a headlamp on). Skied five runs before calling it a night.
