Skiers and Riders Get Ready: Killington Opens Sunday 

Yes, you read that right: Killington is opening for skiing and riding on Sunday, making it the first resort in Vermont to open for the season. Two lifts and six trails ain't much, but at least it's something. I've never been a fan of early-season skiing — there are always big crowds on limited terrain, and what snow is there is mostly the cement-like manmade kind, to say nothing of miserable late-autumn weather — but I know more than a few diehards who will likely make the trip south to Rutland County for those first turns. I think I'll just wait until Smugglers' Notch opens for the season, but that surely won't be too long now either.

(And a note to all of you who are already complaining about the snow and the cold: suck it up. Snow is fun. Cold weather builds character. If you don't like it, you should've gone to college in Florida.)
