Killington to operate for pass holders only; Sunday River to reopen upper mountain.

While both Killington and Sunday River were able to take advantage of last weekend's cold temperatures for an early opening, a mild week has cut into already limited terrain.
Current 7 day forecasts do not show any extended snowmaking opportunities for Killington, but overnight marginal windows may exist for Sunday River.
Killington, which on Sunday was the first area in North America to operate, was open to the public all week. Crowds and a loss of snow at the chairlift loading terminal have resulted in Killington announcing they will suspend lift ticket sales this weekend to preserve snow. Two North Ridge trails will remain open on Saturday and Sunday, but only to Killington passholders. It is not known if ticket sales will resume next midweek.
Meanwhile, after closing Tuesday thru Friday, Sunday River is set to reopen on Saturday and Sunday, but is only expecting to offer the upper T2 trail. Sunday River will not operate next midweek.
