Anyone hear of an opening date yet? Looks like they should be able to run the guns around the clock for the next few days and maybe a get a little natural snow too. Any snow left up there from last weeks snow they got?

We have a condo up there, and I've been checking every day for an opening day, but as far as I can see they haven't comitted to one. I remember Sunday River (also owned by the American Ski Company) had November 10th as there opening day once, but has since taken it down to say "Opening soon." I would think Killington would open within the next couple of weeks.

I was at the ski show in Albany today and stopped by the Killington booth. They told me opening before 11/11 is not in their budget, and then they will only open if there's snow top to bottom.

i understand they are blowing snow at the top by the northridge areas and waiting for lower temps to finish the top to bottom. people are hiking up and getting in some turns

That'd be a suprise, but I'd be there. Less crowds on opening day = fine by me.

Because of a significant warmup this looks like it will not be the case. They were blowing with the intent for this date however. Maybe next week....

Just returned last night from 1st weekend - opening ski house for the season and year start parties. Drove to Killington base yeaterday and snow - not much - top to bottom with guns on in the Canyon. Met several folks with skis/skins planning a trek to the Canyon. Next weekend was projected for opening but with warming trend / rain due later this week, heard that opening would move to 11/17-18.

Getting closer, but not quite there !!!!!

Last year

If you remember last year we had a freak storm on the 24th of october then no snow all year. Hopefully the snow gods are getting the rain out of their system early.
