Was on Mt Ellen this morning, 2/4/13. Wasn't bad at all. It was snowing and Ellen got more like 4 inches on the peak overnight. Made for some nice morning runs... got icy again in the afternoon though. Still had fun... but they need snow... as with all of New England.
For $89 at the Bush you get lines to buy your ticket, lines to get to the lift, bus service to North since they can not affort to run the lifts, and ice in the groomed trails. Get real, there are better and more affortable mountains in VT. Killington is for "Gremos" like you. Go Jay!!
very-very cold and widy, the gondolla didn't work,so freezed our tails on the lifts. but other than that-very good skiing experience. they did some good grooming job and most of the blues were fine, excluding just a few for icy patches. overall very pleasant experience.
