Instagram Tuesday: Ice Coast

Every Tuesday, I feature my favorite Instagram photos from around the lift world.

A massive shout-out to Lift Maintenance and our groomers! About 1/4 of an inch was coating our trails and lifts before the snow fell and they spent much of the evening chipping ice and tilling the mountain and continue this morning due to the high winds. Every tower has to be cleared which makes for tedious work especially after freezing rain. It's amazing how much can change within 24 hours. Five inches since yesterday on top of five inches before the rain a total of ten inches in the past three days! . . . . . . . #snow #snowfall #powpow #powder #ice #freezingrain #frozen #liftmaintainence #snowboarding #skiing #skitheeast #skivt #skivermont #vermont #snowstorm #icestorm #winterstormkade #winterstorm #shoutout

As the saying goes, "it takes a village“ and we’re lucky enough to have a passionate, hardworking village so to speak. We’d like to recognize our lift maintenance crew who spent all day yesterday AND last night out on top of towers in challenging weather working to keep lifts running and prepare them for today. That initiative takes a lot of effort and fortitude, but that’s the kind of dedicated people we have at Killington and Pico. We also want to shine a light on the support of other departments that stepped up to assist lift maintenance while still fulfilling their own duties. The snowmaking and lift operations staff worked alongside lift maintenance for most of yesterday and into the night with groomers pitching in to provide light where they could. Everyone showed true teamwork yesterday! If you see one of our dedicated employees, we encourage you to express your appreciation. As for this morning, we're waking up to 4" that fell overnight. Adding to the 3" from yesterday, we're sitting at a storm total of 7". We'll take it! Stay tuned to the conditions report for updates. #beast365

    Have to comment that it’s sad to see guys deicing with claw hammers while holding onto the haul rope?
