  1. We’ve made it halfway between ski seasons. Snowmaking should start in about 75 days. Time to think about all the fun we have to look forward on the slopes this winter!

    It’s not a publicity ploy for those who ski it. Killington sells a lot of spring passes. The Umbrella bar is rocking with live music etc. in May. They go to Friday-Sunday and a hard core crew of bump skiers ski it every day they are open until they close.

    Killington is trying for June and I would not be surprised to be skiing june 1st at all there. Superstar is as big as I’ve ever seen it.

    Snowing hard and ground covered at 2000ft at the base of Pico, VT. It was snowing wet flakes but not sticking when we got home last night at 8:00pm. I like where I am sitting; 50 feet from the lifts. Gonna be a fun 24 hours.

    The wind is howling and the snow is drifting like crazy at the bottom of Pico. Don’t know how anyone could measure. Enough snow to make a snowball or two actually came in our back door through the cracks.

    It’s been snowing at the Pico base lodge since before 1:30 but by 4:00 had not really amounted to anything. Now it’s snowing at a good clip. We can see defined tire tracks where folks have driven in between the buildings. Seems to be just getting started.

    Hoping the crust was durable. Especially in the woods. Everything was covered so well it was unreal. At least if we can start with a frozen layer vs bare ground that will be a plus.

    The noise at the bottom of a Pico is really weird. It almost sounds like snowmaking air blowing through pipes. And then there is the constant loud crashes of snow unloading off the roofs. I’ve only heard the unloading this bad once. When we woke up that morning like 3 feet of snow was gone and the trails were almost bare.

    Skied a beautiful sunshine afternoon on soft bumps under the guns at killington Friday. Then skied in heavy wind driven Noreaster snow Saturday morning. Unfortunately a power line blew Saturday afternoon and so the mountain is on hold this morning until the repair is complete.
