    So far the forecast looks good going into next week, and will keep going down so they can blow snow by the first week of November.

    It's an awesome ride. I live off the TSP just north of 84. Great route for drivers who enjoy a manual transmission.

    Door to door 2:45 to Snow and 3:15 to K.

    Looking at the models and soundings Killington has a short and marginal window tonight, slightly better tomorrow night. I am using 28 degree wet bulb as threshold which for K early season and in aggressive mode I think is valid. But would appreciate any real intel from the people in the know.



    Wednesday night through Friday mid day is the real deal. I didn't look at soundings but temps at 2,500' are below freezing the entire stretch. Euro is printing out accumulating snow on the spine of the greens, though it doesn't factor in how warm the ground is. Still, this is a window for them to pounce, even on SS at least up top. October opening?

    Long range is looking very positive for a good stretch of colder than normal temps leading into the WC race.
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Even with Monday rain I also think they should try to blow tonight and tomorrow night to get some piles made. Wednesday night onward looks like serious time. Ideally I'd think they'd try for a Friday passholder opening and then open to the public for the weekend.

    Oof. A Saturday public opening would be chaos.

    Sunday is supposed be very cold in CO. Single digits or less, great for snowmaking. My guess it that A-Basin opens Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Bring on the WROD

    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    Pretty desperate to ski now since fishing has died for the most part.

    But not that desperate.

    When K opens it is not just a WROD. It is (or at least the last 3 years i have made opening day) edge to edge coverage. It is the lift line at the North ridge triple that sucks.
