3:52 pm 02/11/16--Spirits are on the rise here in Killington as each day brings a few more snow flurries. The forecast calls for more snow showers this week and maybe even a few inches of accumulation. As nice as those few inches of natural snow are, we'd be in rough shape without our snowmakers - they can pile up a few inches during every hour they operate. They have been operating continuously for more than a week now, with no sign of slowing down.

Overnight, snowmaking wrapped up on Double Dipper, which is now open, and Lower Timberline, which will become the Neffland Park by the weekend. Today's snowmaking plan calls for guns running on Superstar, Snowshed, Cascade, Great Northern and Mouse Trap.

In total, 60 of our 69 open trails were groomed overnight, including favorites like Caper, Rime, Needles Eye, Lower Wildfire and Skyeburst. Notable absences from the list of groomed trails are Superstar, under the guns again on Thursday, and newly opened Double Dipper.

Killington Parks meticulously maintains four terrain parks containing 80 features that break down like this: 19 features in Mouse Run Park, 25 in the Stash, 20 features in Timberline and another 16 in Easy Street and Lil Stash Progression Park. NeffLand is up next, expected to open this weekend with double-digit features including fresh paint designs on everything, even the two new monster features going in the snow.

Key lifts spin 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays, and peak days, and 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. midweek. Check the Base Areas section to the right of this report for services available by lodge for current day.
