The Ole RamsHead Road at Killington


Another beautifully quiet morning on the mountain
Just me and the dogs, meandering about in whichever direction we may choose.

Today, we ended up summiting RamsHead from the South Side - the Novice's Nightmare: the old RamsHead Road. While in summer it is awash in the glow of early autumn, RamsHead Road might have been the cause for any skier quiting the sport good in the days of the old RamsHead Double. Imagine freezing your butt off for thirty minutes (without stopping) on the way up the lift only to be blown to a frozen and windy hell by coming around the steep hairpin turn down RH Road.

Ah, to be a beginner in the good old days of skiing.
you know, when you really hard to know how to ski in order to ski.
