    Funny you should ask. I have to skip opening weekend to visit my brother in Philadelphia. My day 1 will be 10/26.

    Big storm at BDL ongoing for an extended period. Lots of lightning and very heavy rain.

    The first half of March 2018 was unreal. Powder day after powder day. I skied steep tree chutes that dropped like slow elevators. We had one afternoon from 2-4pm where it snowed so hard that every run our tracks were completely covered while skiing in the thick woods. I’ve only seen conditions that good once or twice even though I’ve skied 50-100 days a year for the past 30 years.
  5. It’s August 1st. Time to start thinking about next season.

    Killington is doing really well with excellent skiing on Superstar but the top of the hill is getting a tad rocky. Definately expecting lift served skiing next weekend although there may be some walking involved at some point. Not sure about June.

    Buy boots from a reputable ski shop with full time professional boot fitters with unlimited free fittings and who stand 100% behind the boots and will replace them if you end up with an incorrect fit, We use Norhern Ski works in Killington and they are top notch. All you need to do is go there. They will figure out what boot you need and then custom fit it. Plan for spending a few hours on your first visit and then several follow up visits to tweak the fit after you use them several times.

    Great skiing at a Killington this past weekend. Should have at least 2 more weekends.

    Amazing weekend at Killington! The crowd that showed up was close to the size of a mid winter weekend but with far fewer base areas and parking lots. With 4 lifts servicing an enormous amount of open terrain the trails and glades were not crowded and the lift lines were manageable. Parking was at a premium and many folks got a good warm up hiking to get up into the basin. The weather was beautiful with blue sky and slowly softening snow. The most amazing is how good the snow cover is. Simply epic skiing!

    Supposed to drive from Killington to BDL tonight about 5pm or so. Not sure it’s a great idea.

    Grateful for Killington which is why we buy their season pass every year. 7-8 weeks of skiing left for us. Assuming they are open until Memorial Day we will have 105 days in this year. All the true addicts end up at Killington.

    It's a crime. Pico closed yesterday with the best base in the woods that we have had all year. Thank god for the 6" of snow we got Friday so we could enjoy it as long as you ignored the crunch.

    Conditions are epic at Killington right now. There are no words to adequately describe how good today was.

    We just got back from skiing Killington all day. We got into a band of snow at about 2:30-3:30 that had to be falling at 3+" per hour. I. My life I've only seen it pour snow like that a few times.
