killington2 Killington allowed season passholders and express card holders to ski on its Rime and Reason trails on Tuesday, and opened to the general public on Wednesday the 26th.

Sunday River in Maine also announced last Sunday morning it would begin making snow for the season, but did not yet say when they would open.

Here are some more Instagram photos of ski resorts picking After receiving 5″ of fresh snow, Killington takes the lead in the Northeast to open up the ski season, and of course we have our first trip report in the Forums.


Several other Northeast Ski Resorts are also posting about their first snowfall:
