    Killington always opens with wall to wall coverage on rime and reason, certainly not a ribbon. There will be a small park set up on reason as well.

    WROD refers to a couple of trails with hundreds of People on them (Most being barely able to ski). WHITE RIBBON OF DEATH.

    This.

    I did drive 3 hrs. to hunter on black friday a few years ago for like three trails. That's about my limit.

    Can't really start my season without paying window rates until 11/9. So hopefully it's full-on winter by then!

    Yes, cold October is not a good thing. December usually gets the warmth...fingers crossed though.

    What usually happens is October snow is not good because then the rest of the season sucks.

    Been quite a few actually, though the last 3 have just been too warm. Usually K/SR option and occasionally the Cat has played in October as well. There may have been a few others over the years.

    Just NO October snow in the lowlands. Thats the kiss of death for a ski season IMHO.

    Where the trail has only a ribbon of snow on it, which, as I said, K will not be.
