KILLINGTON, Vermont — Snowmaking is underway for the 2009-10 season at Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard resort in the Northeast.

Crews began making snow at 1 a.m. with a number of guns going on Killington’s Reason trail in the Northridge area. By later Tuesday afternoon, resort officials expect to have a number of Low Energy snow guns going on Rime and Upper Great Northern trails.

Mother Nature also helped us out with 4 inches of new snow at Killington Peak and 1.5 inches at K-1 Lodge.

Based on the current forecast with overnight temperatures ranging from the middle 20s down to the middle teens, snowmaking will continue for the next four-six days.
