KILLINGTON, Vt. – A powerful early-season Nor’easter rolled into Killington Resort on Friday, leaving more than a foot of snow atop Killington Peak (elevation 4,241 feet) by Saturday morning. The storm total also included six inches of snow at the K-1 Lodge (Elevation 2,500 feet).

“Not only does the fresh snow look terrific against the waning fall foliage background, but a big benefit of this early-season storm is the colder temperatures that will drop the water temperature in our snowmaking ponds, so when we do start snowmaking production, our system will be able to operate as efficiently as possible,” said Tom Horrocks, communications and public relations manager for Killington Resort.

“We will continue to monitor the weather forecast and temperatures for producing machine made snow and building early-season base depths,” Horrocks continued. “All of us here at Killington Resort are excited to build early-season momentum and get skiers and riders out on the mountain as soon as conditions permit.”
