Ya, Saturday was a rough day because of the rain on Friday and not dropping below freezing. Butternut was actually a lot better yesterday than it was on Sat because the temps dropped below freezing on Sat night and firmed things up a bit. And that's a good 2 hours south.

Usually anywhere from $25-39 depending upon the mountain.

I've hung up my board. Don't think I'll get another chance before closing day...although the wife is out of town for a few days at the end of the week...hmmm....
Ya, i'll join CSC next year, this is my first year back in a while and didn't realize I'd get so addicted after changing over from skis and I can't pull the kid out of school too often for the mid weeks. Liftopia seems to have half off tickets for Okemo this weekend, so that's more in the range I like.

Whatever Killington says in their report, cut it at least in half. If they say "Wintery Mix," assume an ice storm. If they say "88% Open" assume they mean barely 30% because they're counting the snowshoe tracks across the parking lot. No mountain I've ever ridden lies as bad as Killington.

f00bar So what's the prognosis for VT for the next week or so. I'm looking to try Okemo this Sunday. Just closed out the local area yesterday, Butternut in the Berkshires. I actually think they could have maybe pulled off another week so I'm hoping still some good conditions in VT?
