    Just saw this article on Boston.com http://www.boston.com/ae/radio/edging_the_xtreme/2014/01/killington_-_natural_woods_are.html. It talks about 745 acres of Natural Woods Areas of the mountain that is now going to be accessable for riders and skiers. This link is also in the article http://www.killington.com/winter/mountain/mountain_info/uphill_travel. While the article says that policy is officially called the free uphill travel pass Killington’s website says there is a 20 dollar fee for a season uphill pass and that it must be carried with you at all times. Even if it costs a few bucks it is nice to see more places allowing people to earn their turns.
    Now if it would just stay cold and snow.

    I heard that it’s restricted to Ramshead and if that’s the case, then well, that’s just a crappy publicity stunt.

    Ramshead only at Killington….but the $20. pass gets you Pico too. I’d rather hike there, especially on a Tuesday or Wednesday when they’re closed.

    It is true that it is currently limited to Rams Head at K, but it is a step in the right direction, and I believe (hope) the plan is to allow more terrain outside of operating hours. The route is nicely posted and the mountain personnel were very friendly when I used it (in the past it was hit or miss). Pico is the way to go for a powder morning before the lifts are running.
