    Yikes. Imagine if SR had gotten over 200 inches of snow? They'd be open for weeks longer...

    Well, not exactly. I did some fact checking:

    Total snowfall: 203" - worst since 2005/2006 (saved by late February dump)
    I assume that you are talking about the 2006-2007 season where we got the famous Valentine's Day Storm. Regardless, this statement is incorrect. According to the records I have, the worst season was 1979-1980 when Killington tallied only 138" of snow. Source: Lorentz, p 145 (1990 edition).

    Ski days: 153 - worst ever
    Well....not exactly. Once again, the first season only saw 121 days of skiing. Source: Lorentz, p 44.



    The 1960-1961 season was only 145 days. Lorentz, p. 54.

    The 1961-1962 season was 150 days. Lorentz, 57.

    1962-1963: 148 days.

    Closed for Thanksgiving - first time ever
    Nope. In Killington's first season the resort opened on December 13, 1958, which is after Thanksgiving. Source: Lorentz, p. 43-44.

    Killington opened for its third season on December 14, 1960. Lorentz, p. 54.

    The 1961-1962 season started on December 2, 1961. (57)

    1962-1963: December 8, 1962. (58 )

    In fact, the first time that they opened before Thanksgiving looks to be in the 1965-1966 season when they opened on November 18, 1965. (63)

    There used to be a chart online which had the entire historical data, but I can't find it....

    One key fact that was missed out was that from 1958-1995 while Pres ran it, Killington got into having the longest season and made a profit doing it every year except their first season.
