It’s winter again at Killington Ski Resort

As of one hour ago, Killington Ski Resort had 19 inches of fresh snow, with more on its way. The resort reopened its K-1 Gondola and 35 ski trails. It started snowing at Killington yesterday morning.

The official Killington Twitter feed tweeted yesterday to its followers, “Dear @KillingtonMtn followers, wish you were here. #stillsnowing.”

Recent pictures on Killington’s Twitter feed show the enormous amount of snow as well.

Killington and Jay Peak are the only resorts in Vermont still open. Jay Peak reports it picked up a foot of new powder from the same storm that’s reinvigorated spring skiing at Killington.

Staff at Jay Peak wrote on the ski resort’s home page this morning,

PHRASE OF THE DAY: Dropping Ropes. That’s what you can do when you pick-up a FOOT of new snow overnight….and it’s still dumping. Patrol has reopened 18 trails since this storm started yesterday, including the likes of JFK, Kitzbuehel, Upper Can Am, Upper Quai, Ullr’s, and Power Line, just to name a few. The Bottom Line: Get up here.

Killington and Jay Peak join a small group of ski resorts that are still open. In New Hampshire, Loon Mountain remains open, and Wildcat Mountain is planning to reopen April 14. In Maine, Sugarloaf and Sunday River are open, and Saddleback with reopen April 14 like Wildcat.

UPDATE Wednesday, 4/11 evening: Ski the East has a video report about skiing in fresh powder at Killington.
