NOAA is forecasting snowfall along the Appalachian, Adirondack and White mountains from Virginia all the way to Maine. The snow will primarily be falling on Saturday with snowfall resuming early next week. The new snow should help the ski areas already open for the 2018 – 2019 ski season.

Winter starts when The Beast says so and we say it starts today! Our heroic snowmaking team has been working hard in the North Ridge area, and we’re pleased to announce that the first turns at Killington will be made by our Season Pass and Express Card holders on Friday, October 19.
The K-1 Express Gondola will begin loading at 10:00 a.m. with the last ride up available at 3:00 p.m. Skiers and riders will walk down the Peak Walkway to access open terrain in the North Ridge Area before heading back up the Peak Walkway to download the K-1 Express Gondola. The last run down in North Ridge will be at 3:30 p.m. Read More….
Sunday River, Maine
Opening Day is here!
Thanks to the work of the Sunday River snowmaking team and our increased snowmaking capacity this year, we’re opening for the 2018-19 winter season today, Friday, October 19 at 10AM.
Our current plan is to open for the day on Locke Mountain with Upper Sunday Punch while our grooming team spruces up T2, which will open later in the day. Though we have had groomers on the hill, you can expect snow conditions for advanced abilities only. Lift service will be available from the mid-station of the Locke Mountain triple and downloading back to the base at the end of the day.
Weather permitting, we aim to stay open through Sunday and kick off our early-season operation schedule of offering lift service on weekends only into early November. Stay tuned here for updates.
Season pass pickup and ski rentals will be available at South Ridge Lodge, with Barker Lodge open for skiers services including food and ticket sales. Lift tickets will be $30 for all ages, but 40% less if you have a Threedom Pass.
