Killington...Thanksgiving...World Cup...Snow...This is exciting! 22 Nov 2016, 1:22 pm

I went to the mountain this morning and I honestly feel like a little kid again. THIS IS EXCITING! Do you remember the first time you saw or felt snow. Thats what I felt like this morning while I was witnessing the awesome power of the Killington Resort's snowmaking system.

Musings from the mountain. Skiing...Thanksgiving...Workd Cup...Politics 20 Nov 2016, 3:25 pm

Tall order of subjects in the title.... I will devote blogs in the near future to more detailed posts on each subject... but for today just a synopsis. Skiing.... Mary and I had the good fortune of being able to get our first ski day in last week.

Short twig season.Killington resort gears up for winter. 23 Oct 2016, 12:23 pm

That was a really short twig season. A lot of conflicting weather signals have occurred at the Birch Ridge Inn over the last several days. First off, the Fall Foliage season went exceptionally long in the Killington region.

Twig season approaching at Killington. Can snow season be far behind? 20 Oct 2016, 10:18 am

Fall colors have had a good run this year at Killington. A mild winter followed by a mild summer with reasonable rain fall has made for an extended and colorful fall season. But, in the proverbial last act of the season, the leaves have started to fall from the trees around Killington.

Fall colors peaking at Killington on Columbus Day 10 Oct 2016, 10:37 am

Peak is here... at least in Killington. A few days late by historical standards, but well within the statistical distribution, fall foliage visitors to Central Vermont over this Columbus Day weekend have see great color across the area.

Big seasonal change just around the corner.Fall foliage colors starting to get serious. 25 Sep 2016, 1:44 pm

It's coming. It will be soon now..... Fall colors have been a little slow to date in the Killington region. But you can sense change is imminent. What has been a warm and relatively damp late summer is quickly turning into fall.

While it is just beginning, in my travels around Killington this week there are distinct signs that fall colors are getting ready to make their annual appearance. Colors are not distinctive yet by any measure, but noticable changes are taking place.

In a blog post on April 7th I commented on a recall letter I had received from Honda North America informing me about a potentially life threating problem with the Takata airbags used in my 2011 Honda CRV.

Mountain biking Killington 20 Jul 2016, 9:02 am

Posted by Mary On Monday I went Mountain Biking for the first time since opening the inn. Merisa, our bar tender, was my guide/instructor... and it was great! A week ago I hiked the beginner trails on Snowshed early in the morning to do a reconnaissance run.
