I learned how to ski on Killington Mountain many years ago, way to many to reveal. It was a painful expierence but I did succeed (thank goodness for the good looking instructor). What I learned on this mountain gave me the basics to be an "ok" skier in the East and a not bad skier out West.
I returned to the mountain last weekend, it was just like I remembered...the mountain was very majestic sitting amongst the clouds. It had not changed, just the surroundings now filled with many condos. What did change was me, rather than wanting to ski and conquer "The Beast" I found it looking a little too "Beastly" at this age . I enjoyed admiring "The Beast" from the deck of of the hotel while babysitting for my granddaughter and watching the skiers come in one by one remembering the feeling of being on the slopes all day.
