    Sunday conditions - worth going ?

    With the rain tonight, what do you anticipate the conditions will be like tomorrow at Mt Snow / Okemo / Killington ? Really want to go but concerned about slush / icy crust.

    Elevation forecast for Killington is rain until 10-11am, followed by temps falling into the mid 20s and light snow. Very windy out of the West.

    There's a fair bit of rain forecast overnight, roughly an inch. Doubtful there will be much traffic in the am. Doubtful they will groom in the rain. If the rain is heavy enough, it will scour the surface. If not that heavy, it will just be cream cheesy. Tough call. If there's enough mid day traffic, the remaining cream cheese will get mixed in with the light snow and freeze as it is churned and be tolerable. Any scoured areas or ponding areas will be miserable. I wouldn't worry about a crust, as in glaze on top of soft. Slush in places in the morning for sure. Not a stellar day.

    This is Killington forecast for 3,500 feet:

    Tonight
    Rain. Low around 37. Very windy, with a southwest wind 32 to 40 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New precipitation amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
    Sunday
    Rain before 11am, then snow showers likely. Temperature falling to around 22 by 5pm. Very windy, with a west wind 39 to 49 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of around an inch possible.
