First Turns of the Season at Killington

NY Ski Forum regulars tBatt and Condor, rose before dawn, and headed over to Vermont to capitalize on the first skiable snow of the season. Following is an excerpt and a link to the full trip report.

Killington First Snow: October 28 2011

“Snow in the forecast? Hell yeah! I didn’t know who was getting what, and toyed with the idea of going to Whiteface for Toll Road v2.0. With reports of 12” new at Kmart, we decided to go for the blue light special.

There was about 8 inches of snow with more in drifts and less where the wind was blowing. Having a base would have been nice as there were patches of overgrown grass that grabbed your tips. But it was a bluebird day with temps just above 30. It was a hell of a day.”
