Snow overview for USA
Wintery conditions made a return across America today, Thursday 23rd March. Recent weather has been very spring like with lovely clear skies over many of our featured US ski resorts, however a wintry change is afoot from today. Cloudy snowy conditions and lower temperatures will be the main feature over the weekend. On snow conditions are still very good, even the lower slopes are still offering some good skiing. The American season isn’t showing any signs of slowing down just yet with another excellent weather weekend ahead. There is even some large snowfalls showing on the extended forecast.
Just returned from two weeks in Killington (January 08); it was our first time skiing on the east coast of the USA.
We stayed at the Inn of Six Mountains - the room was exactly as it is shown on their website but there have been a number of changes within the hotel itself. Ceaders Lounge has moved from the large area on the first floor to a small room previously used for conferences on the ground floor. Ceaders Restaurant is very small with only a dozen tables and the price and menu means that the target audience is adults only. However having said all that, the staff are very friendly and helpful with all our requests being met. It was refreshing to find a hotel that considered skiers; we had the option of a free locker for our skis or being allowed to take them to our room, and they provided a free shuttle bus to the ski bases. The hotel also had a dvd rental system in place for movies or interactive games as well as the conventional array of board games; this is a good idea if you have children and this was also free. Channel 14 on the tv is worth checking each morning as it gives you all the information you need for the day such as a weather forcast, what is open on the mountain, details of grooming / snow making and also what entertainment is on that night.
The weather during our stay was very cold (the first time I have ever needed to have boot warners in 10 years) so I would recommend that you take good thermals and make the most of layers while out on the slope to keep warm. If you have them - take goggles for use in flat light so you can prolong you skiing day, it was too cold for glasses as the wind made your eyes rung and the tears froze on you cheek. Sadly thereare only a couple of mountain restaurants, but on the day we decided to go to one, it was closed but the view was spectacular and well worth the ride up in the gondola. Although there are 33 lifts on the mountain there was not a day in our two week holiday when they were all open; more of the mountain is open on the weekend, but with this in mind there is a wide variety of skiing for everyone. It is useful to bare in mind the weather as the wind can result in major areas of the mountain being closed because the lifts and gondolas can't run. Your Killington lift pass is also valid in Pico which as it is only a 10 minute ride away is worth a visit, this resort has completely different skiing to Killington and has the benefit of all the runs ending in a central point. However it is only open Thursday to Monday and with hard skiing you can complete this in a day.
If you stop for a spot of lunch it is better to opt for either an early or late lunch to avoid the crowd. A good place to stop is 'The Long Trail' pub at Snowshed Lodge and value for money is to have soup in a boule and a 24oz can and they are big enough for two people to share. Happy hour in the bars starts at 3pm and finishes at 6pm with most places offering some form of incentive, the best we found were free wings at 'The Lookout' but I would recommend getting waitress service as it gets quite busy. The cheapest place to drink we found was 'Mogules Bar' at $3 a pint and this is just accross the road from the Inn of Six Mountains. Eating out can be a major task in itself as everything seems to be very spread out especially when it is cold but some of the good places to eat were The Grist Mill, The Garlic, Baja Burrito and The Wobbley Barn. The Wobbley Barn while being a steakhouse and therefore having a limited menu is excellent value for money for example $28 allows you to help yourself from the soup, salad and bread bar followed by a steak and jacket spud with complementary entry to the evening entertainment upstairs. Many of the bars have promotion nights when you can get a range of free goodies like caps, tshirts, keyrings etc and it is good to see that they have looked into providing a free bus ride home so there is no need to have a designated driver or freeze on the walk home.
If your transfer from the airport is self drive I would recommend ensuring that your arrival time in the US is around lunch time as the 3 hour drive when it is getting dark can be more stressful due to the road signs being very small and not very well lit up. If possible have a evening flight home as this gives you more time to get to the airport especially if the weather takes a turn for the worse. Make sure that you stick to the speed limit as they are hot on speeding drivers and they are begining to see the 'benefit' of speed cameras both in town and on the highway.
Good points were uncrowded slopes, very little waiting time at the lifts and a good range of evening entertainment to choose from.
Bad points were not all of the mountain being open, everything was spread out with no central focal point and very windy which made the wind chill a big issue both day and night.
