Here are a few shots of the early-season snowfall in Vermont this weekend! Snow fell at higher elevations on Saturday night, October 22. Extra-eager skiers and riders went out to hike for some turns on the higher peaks on Sunday morning. It's an exciting time of year! 

UPDATE: Killington has announced that it will open a couple trails (Rime and Reason) on Tuesday for pass/card holders and will open to the general public starting Wednesday. They got about five inches of snow and have been making snow.
