After a couple of wild weather days, cold winter air has returned to Killington. And the resort has answered in kind.
Early this morning, the Killington resort refired their snow making system.
Killington's condition report highlights the following: "With Wednesday's warm weather in the rear view mirror, Killington snowmakers are excited for a weekend of frosty temperatures. In order to take maximum advantage of the cold forecast, Mountain Ops is bringing in several additional compressors and ramping up snowmaking capacity to a level never before seen in March. By mid-morning, we should have as many as 35 guns running on the lowest section of Great Eastern, and more guns on Superstar, Skyelark, Snowshed, Highline, and Lower Chute. Weekend forecast: 100% chance of a Beast Blizzard in Killington."
The resort is clearly making a play for the spring season. I can not think of a time over the last 20 years where the resort has added extra compressors so late in the snow making season. It says one thing.... the resort team is serious in their battle to provide great spring skiing and riding to visitors to Killington. Killington is not giving up on winter yet... neither should you. Plan your spring visit to Killington with that in mind.
Where ever you may be, get out and enjoy the winter season. And remember...Let It Snow!
