Snow coming to the Northeast

PostBy: ScubaSteve On: Sun Jan 15, 2012 1:58 pm

Im taking a trip snowboarding to Killington this Wednesday. How much snow do you guys think the Northeast states are gonna recieve? What is the word up in Vermont/New Hampshire/Upstate NY in terms of snow? You guys that live up there know better than I do, what are they saying up there? Keep me updated! I hope it dumps on the Green Mountains!!! cheers!! :wine:

You should check out Mad River Glen--they are much more into ski-ing, boarding then who's wearing what. Less Yuppies.More ski/boarding people. ;) Google each area for trail conditions. :shots: :cheers:

I Have heard good things about Mad river Glen, but I have awesome connections at Killington. I am very lucky to be friends with a band who gets a free house provided by the Nightclub! No hotel fees! Plus we are gonna board Wed-Fri so it wont be too crowded. :D

Plenty of snow up that way. If there isn't, it's plenty cold enough to make it anyway. Guarantee there's lots of skiing going on right now.

I'm with you Smitty except it's been a lot longer since I went there, can't remember the price but I know it wasn't bad at that time. To give a approximate date, I had a set of Billy the Kid skis, used to stay at my sisters in Storrs, Conn. & drive up from there. Excellent runs & back then not much $.

Killington Resort has 90 trails open of it's 140 total trails and is operating 13 lifts of its 22 total lifts. It last snowed 8" at Killington Resort on Jan 14.

Spent 3 seasons at Killington...
Never less than 75 days each season...
Only way to ski is a mid week pass...
And get a mid week share...
Pass was $400 and the share was $400...
Less than $10 a day over the 3 years...
So the Mid week is now $600...
still the cheapest way to go...
We would also go up to MRG...
