Killington Ski Resort, “The Beast”, will open for business this weekend.  They got worked by Hurrican Irene, but they have recovered, gotten their snowmaking roaring, and 9” of the natural stuff yesterday didn’t hurt.

Sunday River will also be open this weekend.  They announced their opening 1 hour after Killington announced their opening dates today.
