Some new Killington and Pico photos:

Of interest might be the abandoned Rams Head summit (I hiked up the old 'Horn' trail, and there's a shot down 'Header' ) and the incomplete connector trail to Pico (in the Pico photos).

I should add there are a few Magic photos from Saturday also...just a few parking lot shots of the new used double and a shot of the lodge without the deck in front (back?) of it.

Wow, talk about fancy new paint for the Pico detaches! I like the new look!

Is that quad an old Yan? The chairs look the like the old chairs on Superstar and some of the older Sunday RIver quads.

What ever happened with the connector? I remember some folks talking about it a few years ago. The trail looks to be in good shape. Does it just not connect? How long would it have to be? Would there be a need for lifts to make this happen? I would think you could ski from Kmart to Pico, but perhaps need a lift up the backside of Ram's head.
I've only skied Killington late season so I've only seen Pico from the summits.
Perhaps if ASC woudl sell off Steamboat then some of the eastern resorts could build new lifts. Sugarloaf would be tought to beat with an uphill upgrade. I'd like to see them replace the double-doubles with double-detachable-quads. That could quite possibly be one of the coolest things. Is there such a thing? I've seen double-quads, but they've been fixed grips.

The two quads at Pico are indeed Yans.

It's actually the other way around - one could ski to Rams Head from Pico if they made a crossover near the Sherburne Pass trail, however it's not possible the other way around due to the topography. As it stands now, there is no connection, as that trail ends up somewhere near the Killington access road.

There is a thin little connection between the Connector trail that cuts across to the Swirl trail on Rams Head. Walking required, its flat, but its there.
