Planning a trip weekend of March 22nd-24th

Hi,

I want to book the ski&stay package for my wife's birthday. we are both beginners(ski/board 1 or 2 times )

Have couple of questions:

Is it best to book through killington.com for their ski&stay package?

I did an estimate on there came out to be around $800 including 2 days of lessons and hotel room for 2 nights @ grand resort

How is the skiing condition during that time?

Thanks,

VK

Can't comment on costs though it sounds fairly reasonable. Lessons and lift tickets are expensive.

Can't really predict snow conditions either. it could be cold with plenty of snow or it could be warm with spring conditions (which are not great for beginners).

If it is your first time there, I would not book through killington.com. Call the phone number instead, so they can walk you through the process and fine tune your reservation.

Warm and soft conditions is better than cold and hardpacked, so for beginners I've always suggested to try mid~March onwards. That sounds about right for 2 days lessons/lifts/nights slopeside.
