  1. It's August so it's time to start thinking about skiing. Killington opens in about 75 days.
  2. Killington pulled it off and it was amazing!!!
  3. Will Killington re-open for June 1st? Things looking positive. Lots of hiking involved if they pull it off.
  4. I wonder whether the World Cup ice will be extra durable. Two to three weeks ago or so, last time they groomed, they pulled up some chunks of the World Cup ice into the groomed sugar snow. It made the groomed section horribly treacherous. The World Cup stuff is not going anywhere. It will be interesting to see how durable that bottom layer is.
  5. Looks like we might have lift served skiing until June at kilington this year with the cooler air returning so quickly.
  6. Massive damage in rutland. Whole town without power. Ludlow out as well and many in between. Trees and wires down everywhere in Rutland.
  7. I thought there was a contentious divorce that had something to do with it. I believe the wife own the base lodge and would not let him use it. We had to boot up in hotel rooms that year with no food service etc.
  8. Yesterday afternoon there was a large Black Bear on Royal Flush in the canyon at killington feeding while everyone was skiing by 50 yards away from it. K lost a lot of snow and the natural trails are on their way out but the glacier is huge. We will be skiing on Memorial Day I think.
  9. Just snowing like crazy with blowing a drifting at Kilington right now.
  10. Snow accumulating on the grass but I 91 still seems OK at the VT border
  11. Sleet snow mix with wet roads on northbound I91mile Rt 2 exit. 36 degrees
  12. Years of experience says between exit 3 and exit 6 on 91 and the Proctorsville Gulf between Chester and Ludlow are the worst spots. Good luck!
  13. We are driving to Killington leaving Ct about 1pm. I'm guessing north of Deerfield it could start to be slippery. From exit 3 in VT north I think it could be quite slippery as there are some hills. Unfortunately even a small layer of wet greasy snow is slick. Dryer snow gives better traction.
  14. When would the highest impact be on travel if that is the case? Friday night? Hate to ask an IMBY question but my grandmothers funeral is at 10am in Bethel Ct. driving there and back from Windsor locks between 8am and 1pm or so. 84? Expecting nothing to be sticking at that point so roads OK. Family is freaking out.
  15. Makes sense to me. What's gonna happen Sunday?
