display, Snowed Inn had it's challengers. However, after a full
tour of the field on Dec. 11, all four judges unanimously ranked
Snowed Inn with the highest marks. "Theirs just had the best 'wow'
factor, it was very impressive when we first pulled in," said John
Harniman, a judge representing The Mountain Times. Kate Seymour, a
representative judge from the Town of Killington agreed, "I like
the way everything is lit up, their sign, their entrance, their
roof line, it just looks great!"
The Snowed Inn received a blackout pass from Killington Resort,
a $1,000 ad package from The Mountain Times and a plaque to display
at the Inn.
The runner up award was an even more competitive race, with
