A few October snowflakes, dropping temps, and Killington will open this weekend!

It didn't take long for Killington to jump on the cold temperatures that have just arrived in Vermont this week. After making some snow last night, Killington announced today it will offer some very limited skiing (the Rime trail) on Friday to pass-holders and they expect to open to the public on Saturday.

Also this week we saw a few snowflakes on Vermont's highest peaks. Enough to get us all in the mood for the switch over from fall to ski season! Woot!
