Default Killington, VT - next weekend

Hey everyone. Now I'm dying to go snowboarding and been telling my buddies that we should go snowboarding on the thanksgiving weekend. we live in NYC so besides the resorts in poconos such as hunter, the best options we have are in Vermont which is 4-5 hours away.

I was wondering if anybody went to Killington yet or how do you think it will be on thanksgiving weekend as far as snow quality - crowd, etc...

Thanks

While i have not been up there this season yet i do know that its 3 trails open now. i also thought of this same idea and talked to many other people that want to go up thanksgiving weekend. I suspect it will be extremely packed with the fact that its really the only mountain open and everyone has off from work and its 3 trails. I have decided not to go after thinking about it

I assume they'll be opening more trails by Thanksgiving.. I don't think they'll want to run with only 3 trails on thanksgiving weekend... It would be terrible for business.

Well I have been going every weekend since they opened. Conditions aren't too bad, it's nice riding in 40+ degree weather right now . I left before it went T2B today, but I can post back tomorrow with an update. Crowds aren't overely bad on the mountain, but the lift line gets backed up. I am hoping this changes tomorrow with the expanded terrain.

Are they talking about the thanksgiving weekend? Like, how many trails or lifts they're planning to open

They are top to bottom right now. Apparently started today around 2PM. Bump this thread up tomorrow afternoon and I'll try to remember to post a detailed update. Go on their website and look at the interactive map (look at snowmaking trails)

I'm planning the same trip from NYC to VT next weekend. I'll be keeping an eye on the conditions everyday from now on. Things look promising though...

how do you plan on going? Bus or car? I don't have a car so I was looking at the bus tours but couldn't find anything daily
