I skied killington last saturday through wednesday...
saturday was a nice day - busy mtn - ok conditions for good skiers... sketchy/gnarly for not-so-good skiers
sunday - less crowded, warmer temps made for squishier snow (feel the burn!)
monday - ditto - snowmaking made for some fun "seeing-eye-dog" runs
tuesday - it got cold over night and the snow-making made for some nice conditions in the upper half of the mtn... bottom remained soft
wednesday - much warmer and softer
thursday - torrential rains kept me off the hill and I won't ski again until next saturday
I skied early days last year - I remember it being REALLY nice (at okemo) the few times I went pre-thanksgiving, thanksgiving weekend I skied sunday river in light rain on muddy trails, then the 1st weekend of dec we hit sugarloaf and got 4'+ snowfall!
early season is always unpredictable... if you can ski well it's generally ok...
see you on the slopes!
