Default Killington......?

Has anyone been up to Killington yet this season?

I wanna make the trip but I cannot determine if the conditions are worth it yet!!! Its a 5 hour drive and about $100....I dont know how much longer I can not board for, but I also dont wanna go if the conditions are miserable!!!

Have you been there yet? What are the conditions like? Is it worth it??!!!

dont count on any boarding until the beginning of dec.
right now its like in the 40s and 50s there.
Killington is a hectic place, over crowded and more of a skiiers paradise.
check out other resorts like okemo or mt snow, hopefully ill be able to board this weekend cuz the weather looks SOMEWHAT favorable

I am not sure, but it doesn't sound like it's going to be very good. From their website.

Our snowmaking crew is excited to get back to work, and we're excited to get back to skiing and riding here at Killington. However, Mother Nature needs to deliver some cold temperatures so we can crank up the World's Most Extensive Snowmaking System.

Unfortunately though, due to weather and snow conditions, we will not offer skiing/riding this week. We hope to re-open for the weekend of Nov. 28-29. Check back often for updates.

Please, Think SNOW and COLD!
Sounds like a whole bowl of suck to me...

i was there on november 7th, it was great

but would you really listen to that? i wouldnt

what we do is check the resorts website, the conditions namely, conditions tell you how many trails are open, then they tell you the temperature, snow depth and type, they have this whole system too that they make 'forecasts' with, it predicts what the conditions will be like, ya know ... future type stuff

this is how

Killington is beat until at least this weekend but if they do reopen I seriously doubt they will have anything that is going to be worth riding. It's been too warm around here. fuck global warming

I know how to check the reports on the conditions in Killington, I check them 6 times a day with hope that it will change and it will say its amazing head high powder. But its hard to go by the conditions on the Killington website just cause I feel like they will sugar coat the real conditions. For example, if its icey, they arent going to write on the report 'icy conditions today!'. And the report has been so so. Sometimes they say great top to bottom skiing but there are only 7 trails open? How would it be that 7 trails is 'great top to bottom sking?'

So, I would like to get some first hand opinions from anyone who has actually been there. But my assumption is right...first week in December But good news....the temperature is going to drop and it looks like snow is in the forecast for next week. About time...cause Im going crazy over here wanting to board. My boyfriend has 2 brand new boards he still hasn't had a chance to ride! Last season Killington opened on Novemeber 2nd with middle of the season type conditions...


Stupid global warming...Im going extra green starting today
