Taking spring very un-seriously

Scott Downs, from Middleton, Massachusetts, and Lincoln, New Hampshire, comes to Killington in the spring after Loon Mountain (New Hampshire) closes. 

In addition to skiing as many spring days as he can, “I always try and make the June 1 days at Killington,” he said. 

With the Icon Pass he also comes when the mountain first opens.

As of this past weekend, Downs has skied 73 days this season and is “always in search of that milestone: 100 days!”

In 2019, he skied all 12 months of the calendar year without leaving the United States.

Next year he’ll celebrate his 30th year “with my suit… the same Northface extreme suit as our legends Glenn Plake, Mike Hatrip, Scott Schmidt…” he said.
