I think Krustys forecast will be spot on for Killington. That Noaa.gov forecast knows about the trending colder. the discuss and the weather boards have been saying his for two days. Saturday and Sunday will be good.

i rely on a smorgasbord of dot gov, tropical tidbits GFS, open snow, and weather.com[/QUOTE
These point and click NWS forecasts are better than many of the other "graphic" weather sources. But you have to realize its simply the output of the GFS. It is not the actual forecast as put out by NWS BTV (in the case of Killington). While the GFS can be a good model, it often busts and should always be used in combo with the Euro and NAM, if not the Canadian and UK Met. At the least, you should read the detailed Forecast Discussion that is put out at least twice a day by the actual NWS forecaster who is looking at all the models, soundings, etc and knows the local micro climates etc.
So I guess I would revise my comment to read "Be aware of what goes into this forecast and don't use it as the sole input to your decision making."

Love reading those detailed discussions and highly recommend them as well.
yes, the one i posted is specific for killington PEAK
I was there today. This morning skied nicely. Snowing lightly when we got there at 9:45. Picked up around 11. After lunch it went to shit the top 2/3rds of the lynx trail. The wind picked up temps dropped. tried to ski some ungroomed under the chair and it had a crust on top. The trail itself froze up and was a little tough to ski gracefully. Left around 2 as I had enough. It was fun for the full ttb morning runs just not after lunch.Wildcat claiming 6” of dense snow overnight.

While I had fun today when skiing, the line at North Ridge at k sucked. 1 minute of skiing for every 15-20 minutes of waiting in line then the lift ride.
