While they may not be predicted to get loads of snow over the next couple days, Killington has more terrain open than anywhere else in the northeast. As such, look for a rogue last minute system to deliver a couple extra, unforseen inches of accumulation. Also, 15″ in the last 48 hours doesn’t hurt.

Zermatt is looking down the barrel of what could be the storm of the season for the Swiss ski resort. Basically, if you’ve got a few thousand bucks laying around, it might be time to book a flight.

Timberline had a limited opening this past weekend and the Oregon ski area should continue operations through Thanksgiving (weather permitting). That said, it looks like ULLR is happy to oblige.
