Vermont's first ski area opens for the ski season

Killington ski resort opened for the ski season on Sunday, November 2. The Big K ski conditions page reports that they have two lifts, seven trails and three miles of skiing—all for the low price of $65 (gulp!). Skiers are accessing this terrain via the K-1 Gondola.

Vermont's first ski resort opensAs you can see from this Killington photo, Sunday was a gorgeous blue sky kind of day all around the state. The Skimeister and I went for a hike near Bolton Valley Resort in the mid-afternoon, which felt like a late-afternoon hike because of daylight savings time.

We came across a thinly iced-over beaver pond, some puddles of snow left over from last week, and a few fresh icicles hanging off a rock cliff. In a couple of places on the Long Trail we crunched through some snow that had been covered up by the many fallen leaves. Just a taste of what's to come!
