Thankfully after a warm start to November, we are heading into colder weather!

Some Vermont ski areas have fired up their snowmaking either for testing or to lay down a white carpet on some trails.

Killington has a bunch of snowmaking to do prior to hosting women's World Cup ski races on November 26-27, 2022. Once they get the right temperatures, the Beast gets all guns firing on that slope to get things ready for the world's best skiers.

Check out how to watch World Cup skiing on the TV or computer this season.

It's time to start thinking cold, snowy thoughts, y'all!
