They are always good for the stoke factor.

Killington plans on making snow again...
"You won't see any snowguns running Monday, but that doesn't mean that The Beast is done making snow. We're eyeing a cold snap coming Tuesday night that should let our snowmakers get back to growing the Superstar glacier for May (and maybe even June) skiing and riding"
2016-2017 target - 50
If you take what the mountain gives you, you will always have fun!
I hope to ride Killington in June this season. If nothing else other than to just be able to snowboard in June.
2014 - 2015 Season: 16 days
2015 - 2016 Season: 24 days
2016 - 2017 Season: Shooting for 30+
While I can vouch that as of noontime today there were still some fanguns with hoses still hanging on them, it wouldn't surprise me to see those hoses gone next weekend

I agree with DHS. Unless you are known for going deep into May and want to add some insurance on making it as far as you want, there really is no point in making snow now. Snowmaking trails should have adequate coverage (especially on spring routes) at this point at most major mountains to last well into April barring any major heatwave.

If Whitecap is open into mid-late April that'll get me back to SR one more time most likely.
Wildcat tweeted the other day #skiuntilmemorialday. While I highly highly doubt that, has anyone heard of plans up there to make snow?
