Southwestern Ontario to Killington
 
So I just booked a trip to killington over christmas break. So stoked. Anyways just wondered if anyone on here has driven out there, what to expect, any details I should know, I will be doing most of the driving. Google maps tells me to take I90 all the way pretty much, is this the fastest way? Hopeing someone will be able to give me some advice. Anything you know that could help me on this trip would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I did this last season. It's a nice drive, mostly highways, lots of police hiding along the route. It was a big blizzard, and the road was drivable, but definitely not salted or cleared as quickly as Ontario highways. I left Toronto at midnight though, so maybe that's why no snowplows were on the road. Shouldn't be a problem with AWD, but take the usual precautions.

Killington was great. Conditions can vary anywhere from slightly icy to nicely packed powder, or if you ignore the 'closed' sign, fresh powder.

I got a big 4x4 truck so I'm good for traction and such, just gotta get some sandbags for the bed, and hopefully won't have to drive at all in 4x4.

I'm from london and Doing all day driving, going to try and time everything so we don't hit any big rush hour traffic.

Just Seeing if there are any little shortcuts or anything that people know about, going with a couple university friends so trying to keep it as cheap as possible!
