It's almost always Killington. I rode there on November 10 a few years ago...only 11 trails, advanced only, manmade snow, but it was actually really, really good. Especially since there was almost nobody there.Anyone know of any early openers this year? Looks like a few mountains have given up the push lately to open late october/early november.
Hard freeze all the way down here in CT this week. VT ought to be cold enough to start getting a good base down. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Killington opened first week of November.Killington is making snow this week, my best guess is that they open the first week of November.
I can't post this enough...JOIN THE CT SKI COUNCIL. They don't care if you snowboard. There are 42 local chapters in CT, so there is probably one near you. We belong to Meriden Ski Club, $35 a year -- it pays for itself the very first trip to the mountain, as lift tix are usually $35-45. It's great if you like to ride a different mountain every weekend, but you are limited (if you can call it that) to their calendar. The good part is that there is always a cheap ticket even on holidays and blackouts. And they do a few Stowe deals with multi-day passes that are cheaper than a usual 1-day pass. Also, if you don't want to drive, they do frequent bus trips for wicked cheap, including tix. Best "secret" around! Here is the calendar for the 2013-2014 season...If any of you CT guys want to carpool up to VT this year let me know. I'm in the New Haven area and do day trips on good pow days. I generally head over to Killington and have a great snow vehicle.
