Best Southern Vermont option for Dec 14-15

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

 Heading up to Ct for a baby shower for that weekend.  I know the weather could be hit or miss and i dont wanna drive the extra hour to Killington which would likely have better conditions, so what resort in S Vermont would be the best option at that time of year for best conditions/open terrain do you think based on the past?

I imagine, okemo, stratton, and mount snow will be making lots of snow.

All three are almost certain to be open by then. However, how much they have open by then is going to be very hit or miss. Okemo will probably have a few trails open, Stratton and Mt Snow might still be in the WROD stage.

Really depends,skied Okemo and MT Snow early(diff years)But Killington will have the most open.Drive the extra hour!

Killington will have the most terrain, and the most crowds.  I like Okemo better on weekends before Xmas most years, but it's all pretty sketchy in mid-December.

Okemo generally opens a week or so before Mount Snow and Stratton, so they'd probably be in slightly better shape. They'll have been open about a month by the 14th, ought to be enough time to get trails on most of the mountain, except maybe South Face, open. I skied there early season two years ago, conditions weren't great, and they gave me a voucher for a half price lift ticket later in the season.

Killington has already been open for 2 weeks.  Everyone to the south will be playing catchup.
