Killington beat again this year. (can't really count Tenney in this)

post #1 of 11

Teeny, Tiny Woodbury, Ct opened a 200 vert. slope and a rope tow today, before Killington for the second year in a row. Bellayre in NY also opened today, but Bellayre will close after today and remain closed until Saturday the 15th. At best (not counting Tenney of course), Killington will place 3rd in the race to open. I've heard that their plan is to open tomorrow at noon.

So sad, still the East Coast. It's like 2 midgets fighting over the ice cream sandwich that the tall person is holding.

I'm assuming you're indicating Europe is the tall person with the ice cream; and eastern and western North America are the midgets?

Shouldn't count if you can't maintain a sustained opening.

First or not, The cold weather is setting the stage for a "normal season".

I drove past Okemo yesterday morning, The snow guns were blazing, and there looked to be a top to bottom coverage, Well, sort of, depending on were you call, Bottom.

Still , It gets ones blood flowing.

Soon Soon I tell ya'!

That still leaves Woodbury and as I found out an area in Canada, Mont Saint-Sauveur and from what I understand, Sunday River, Maine which beat Killington by just hours.

Sunday River and Killington still have the same parent company correct? I wonder if there is some inside competition there. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Nice to see the weather turning cold this week too. It shouldn't be too long until most major NE areas are cranking away.

My husband took the afternoon off and went to Killington yesterday. Said it was ungroomed and bumped up with big gullies. A perfect way to start the season, he said. A workout equal to several days of groomed runs.

I'll be at sunday river this friday. Look for a mid hieght guy on either blue Saloman straight skis at 207, OR red and white Völkl P40 race carvers. Depending on the weather I could possibly be skiing in leathers.

As far as Tenney not counting. I beg to differ Laurie, seeing as I was there, and had a blast. Totally got my money's worth.

Sugarloaf has been blowing snow for several days now as well. My dad and I took a run down Sluice and Boardwalk sunday morning. It was absolutely fantastic.

here's a link to a picture that someone at the mountain took of pops

I did not count Tenney because they have a different technology than the others. I looked at it and out of fairness to the others I only included those areas with the same technology.

Most capacity? :
