Do we have the longest season in the northeast? Probably. We usually hang in there until the overlap of sailing and snowsports – and start again before all the slopes are closed.
Killington opened awhile ago for skiing and riding. True, it’s only a few trails and some walking at the end to download. We have it a little easier. Fewer boats, but same waters and routes. No hiking. Launch still whisks you out and back in less time than John Cheetah could have recited this post. (Okay – maybe a little more time than that. But fast.)
We got folks out both days last weekend, November 5 and 6. Should have gotten several parties out this Sunday the 13th but skeleton crew and an illness shut us down. We’ll get out this coming week and see what weather and the haulout schedule bring thereafter.
So, how much time do we have left? Who knows. But if we run out, there’s our Coastal Navigation courses, our Virgin Islands trips (BVI), and of course, snowsports. Our HBIC* pictured above is a PSIA/AASI certified snowboard instructor, and loves teaching. If you or someone you know wants to get started, or get over the hump (or back on the horse if you were tossed on your arse), hit us up and he’ll talk to you about your goals on the snow.
