I'm pretty novice when it comes to park, so that will probably be where I should go... maybe by day 2 I can hit the stash.

Default KIllington Lodging

Thinking of surprising the family with a few mid-march days at Killington. Any suggestions on a decent condo? I need a place with a kitchen, as we have food allergies and eating out every meal is tough. Want someplace that we can get a decent nights sleep, and hopefully an outdoor hot tub.

Not particular about ski in/out, as we tend to be there at first run and ski all day rather than jump back and forth to the room, but I'm not against any suggestions.

Also, looking at the historical data, march is normally pretty decent there, right?

I was going to book Pico Sports through K's website but the reviews show it to be an abomination. Its the second lowest ranked place there? That surprises me.

Anyway, thanks in advance.

I was about to make a very similar post...we are talking about heading up there for 4 days in early March. Seems like the 10 day weather forecast is ideal for snowmaking. I hope they get some natural snow too.

Keeping an eye out for responses.

On my way up to killington now from PA. won't be riding until tomorrow but their website says they won't be making snow again until friday. I've been watching the weather up there for the past two weeks and I know they haven't received much snow. Hoping the conditions are worth the trip.

Any updates? Why aren't they making snow? I'm about to book 5 nights in early March for my family and will be PISSED if the conditions suck.

Because it makes no sense to make snow if it's going to be in the 40s and raining a day later. March is still a long way off though.

My wife changed her mind and wants to go to Mt Snow now, and we found a fantastic deal on a log cabin. Still haven't committed to going yet tho.

When is it going to be 40* and raining?

The forecast I see says 37* and sunny tomorrow, 35 and sunny on Friday and then cold (real cold) and some snow over the weekend. It's been crystal clear all week from what I have seen on the web and perfect snowmaking conditions overnight.

Conditions were pretty good today considering the weather. Diamonds and doubles were pretty much the only things closed. Not much ice on everything else besides what you'd expect.
