Colorado Open, Snowmaking at Killi begins!

Last weekend, some of our favorite mountains in Colorado opened up for the 2013/2014 season.

Arapahoe Basin already has a 18” base… with 9” total since Sunday!

You know what that means! Winter is coming for us here on the East coast! We may not have the natural snowfall (yet), but temps in Vermont have been falling…  with new snowguns in place, Killington is ready to begin snowmaking! Check out the report here.

Below is an excerpt from Killington’s President, Mike Solimano’s  “State of the Beast Address”

As temperatures start to drop, I thought I would update you on our plans for the fall. We regained the undisputed title of “Beast of the East” with last year’s longest season on the East Coast, skiing and riding from October 13, 2012 – May 26, 2013. (Yes, we worked hard to make June but it wasn’t to be.) We have more big plans for this year – did you see the new snowmaking installed on skier’s right of lower Superstar? We’ll be able to pound that trail on the lower half from both sides!

…The snowmaking system is ready and our team will be on high alert for a snowmaking window.

That’s right snow lovers, it’ll be here before you know it!
