The snow is returning, and so is the cold weather. The forecast predicts 5-10″ of new snow starting this afternoon. The storm is expected to stay until tomorrow with more snow showers possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. This should add some nice depth to our trails and hopefully allow us to reopen some ungroomed trails as well.
Killington – open with 36 Trails and 9 Lifts
Mother Nature started delivering fresh flakes this morning, Beast fans, and we already have 2 inches of accumulation as of 11:00 a.m.!
Mad River Glen – Reopening soon with 4 Trails and 1 Lift
We’re looking forward to another weekend with all of you! As many of you know, this past week brought unusually high temperatures for December- and even some rain- to Central Vermont, leaving us wondering what the next few days might look like. However, the 48-hour forecast is promising as we anticipate snow showers beginning early this afternoon that are expected to continue overnight. Projections show 4-8 inches of snow by tomorrow, with cold temperatures next week to preserve accumulation. As always, we’ll cross our fingers for maximum totals and let you know the outcome!
Magic Mountain – 3 Trails and 2 Lifts
Middlebury Snow Bowl – 3 Trails and 2 Lifts

Wintery weather is finally headed our way, starting with temperatures decreasing to mid-20s at the base and low 20s at the summit. Winds from the west of 10-20MPH shouldn’t pose any issues today.
