Ski season underway at Killington

Posted: Updated:

It's official -- the winter skiing and riding season is underway.

Killington Resort opened Monday. Over 100 snow guns were fired up to coat the upper slopes. Skiing and riding will be on un-groomed, advanced terrain only. No beginner terrain or terrain park features will be available at this time.

"A lot of our opening dates are usually the week before or weekend after Thanksgiving," said Sarah Neith with the Vermont Ski Areas Assn."The general trend is that season pass and preseason ticket sales are up so we are looking at a positive season."

Neith said with the colder temperatures, many resorts have been able to start making snow as well.
