My nephew at CVA in Maine informed me that they've recently had a dusting of snow on top of Sugarloaf but it didn't stick. It won't be long now!

It snowed at height of land on the Kancamagus Highway Manchester Union Leader article . It's gone now...Soon, yes it will be soon.

Motorcycled up Mt Washington 2 weeks ago and found enough snow to make a snowball. I've been noticing on radar loops that there are some pinks and a liitle white showing up in northern Maine. Killington blew the mice out of their snowmaking lines last week and put down a little white gold. It's creeping down from the North. Hang loose it won't be long!

Frankly, I am disappointed, though not surprised that Killington and Sunday River haven't started making snow for real. In previous years these guys have been open by now. Certainly will be cold enough this week with highs in Boston only predicted to be in the 40s.

Let's go for it guys!

Maybe an early season rendevous for the bears at Killington? In about three weeks?

From I 89 in Randolph today, several of Killington's slopes were white, so it appears they have started in earnest. And for what it's worth, there was snow that actually stuck to the ground in Topsham and several points north.

I was just getting some bootwork. The guys at the shop said Killington opens tomorrow. Here in Stowe it has snowed the last two days. The trails are looking white, but it didn't stick in the valley.

Killington's web site says they're opening on the 25th, it's getting closer.

I am planning on skiing Killington tomorrow. They are open! They opened on the 25th with 7 or 8 trails and 3 slopes. The problem is, right now it is raining where I am, I think it may be raining there too.

They were NOT the first area to open in the east this year, a small upstart in Woodbury, CT beat them to the punch.

Opening Day on Friday was unbelievable! That could end up being one of my best days of Eastern skiing this year - seriously. And despite the possible rain today, base depths on Rime & lower East Glade are huge (judging by the mogul troughs), so should be plenty of snow left.

T,
As of 3pm...I didn't notice any bare spots on the Loaf's trails from
the skishop area...it had been raining constantly since 9am...
so the trails must have a few inches of depth...and the temps
aren't rising that much.... Sure need this rain, the streams/
rivers are sooooo low. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Skiing was GREAT today! It rivaled any mid season skiing I got in last year here in the north east. Of course, there was only very limited terrain open, but the snow was great until about 1, then it got too soft for me. Cover was still good.

Yesterday they had 5-7 inches of snow before it turned over to rain, that certainly helped.
