Thanks to cold weather moving in to the area, snowmakers have been busy and will be working hard through the week.

Killington has announced it will start spinning its lifts on Wednesday, November 8, for passholders. Killington will open on Thursday, November 9, for the public for the 2017 - 2018 ski season.

Mount Snow announced it will open on Saturday, November 11.

Okemo will open on Saturday, as well.

Clearly there will be very, very limited terrain open. Check on the details before you head over. (Our <link internal-link internal link in current>Vermont Ski Resorts page has direct links to resort snow conditions reports.)
