Killington: Show Me the Snow

I find it hard to believe Killington opened on October 29th with a foot of natural snow, and now they are struggling to get and keep snow on the ground.  There is mostly man made snow on 167 of a possible 752 acres of trails.  It has been an odd year.  A big dump of snow, cold temps, snow making, then a warm up, rain and melt down...repeat. 

I think or hope now winter has begun and the cold temps will stick around.  The snowmakers are working their magic and systematically covering the acres of snow barren trails.  Each day there are a few more trails open.  I am here through Thursday.  I'll report back and let you know how white Christmas Killington will be having.

Snow guns covering as much terrain as quickly as possible.
