Warm temps delay ski area openings

on
Looks like we have to wait a little while longer for more ski resorts to open for the season. The reason? You guessed it. It’s been a little too warm to have non-stop snowmaking that will turn brown trails into white carpets. But things are looking up for Thanksgiving weekend thanks to several days of […] [Read More]

Snow sliding and a BBQ

on
If you plan to head to the only ski area open in Vermont this weekend it should be a fun – yet crowded – good time. There’s even a barbeque at the base of the chairlift, although personally it looks like the guy has cooked the burgers too long. At Killington they have only eight […] [Read More]

The first runs of 2010-11 season began shortly after 10 a.m. The upper elevation trails can be accessed by taking the K1 gondola to the summit and riding down […] [Read More]

Mohawk opening day

on
A great opening day for Mohawk Mountain in Cornwall. Two top to bottom runs, packed powder and sunshine. No lift lines and it seems more ski instructors more than guests. They are charging 20 bucks for a half-day tickets; well worth the price. Trails are covered with packed powder. Not bad for CT in early […] [Read More]

Sliding through Indian Summer

on
As we bask in the warmth of an Indian Summer, eastern skiing and snowboarding is on hold. Sunday River, the first and only area to open, temporarily suspended skiing on Sunday. The good news: we’re starting to see our first snowstorms of the season. Granted they’re out west, but it’s a good indication of what’s […] [Read More]

Snow farmers go to work

on
I guess you can make a video on just about anything if you have some decent music to go along with it. It also helps if you know how to shoot a video. Well here’s one shot earlier this week in Loveland, Colorado. Yeah I know Sunday River in Maine was the first ski area […] [Read More]
