Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Despite some rain, Vermont's ski areas say the early season is looking good, with the slopes full of skiers, many of whom are also staying in area hotels and eating in local restaurants.

As of just before Christmas, the Killington ski resort was about 9.5 percent ahead through the same point in the 2012-2013 season.

Killington Spokesman Michael Joseph said Tuesday the resort had 69 days of skiing so far this season and as of right before Christmas business was up 9.5 percent over the same point in the 2012-2013 season.

Parts of southern Vermont are forecast to get 6-12 inches of snow in the storm expected to hit New England and parts of New York Thursday and in to Friday.
