Killington has seen some real winter weather since Thursday, and we have 18 inches of natural snow, a bundle of new trails, great snowmaking, and even tree skiing and riding to show for it!

**Mountain Operations continues to work on the Skye Peak Express Quad, with potential for an afternoon opening, time estimate 1:30 p.m. We will post more details on Bear Mountain as they become available.**

Unfortunately, Ma Nature is not always kind, and the brutal cold she brought on Sunday has shown no mercy to our lifts. The bitter conditions were especially hard on the electrical /mechanical systems of the Bear Mountain Quad and Skye Peak Express Quad. While we continue to work to resolve these issues, the Bear Mountain area will most likely not open on Monday. Our Mountain Operations crew has been working hard and will keep on doing so until the lifts are up and running. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience, and we will let you know as soon as Bear and all its great trails come back online.

We still have a sweet holiday in store, so never fear! We’re looking to have nearly 450 acres of open terrain on Monday, offering skiers and riders 41 miles for all ability levels. Though the cold weather is hard on our lifts, it’s great for our snowmakers, and they plan to go after Lower Conclusion, Needle’s Eye, Upper Header, and the trails leading to Skyeship Base! Terrain park enthusiasts can get excited, because snowmaking is planned for The Stash, as well.

Our groomers are looking to head to Outer Limits, Cascade, Timberline and other favorites. Expect 51 trails of corduroy and even some spot guns alongside those hidden powder stashes in the morning! Squeeze Play, Patsy’s, and Lowrider will be open with all of their trees, too – ungroomed, of course.

Upper Bunny Buster and the Highline Race Trail will be closed to the public for events. Thanks for your understanding.

Thirteen lifts are scheduled to start spinning at 9:00 a.m., including the Northbrook Quad and the K-1 Express Gondola . The Sunrise lift will still be running, with limited access from the Upper Mountain.

The Mouse Run Terrain Park on Snowdon Mountain is open with 24 features and the Timberline Terrain Park is open for the season with 15 features, including six jumps!

In addition, the K-1, Snowshed and Ramshead Lodges will be open. Lifts will be open from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and lift tickets will be $79 for Adults (19-64), $67 for Young Adults/Seniors (13-18/65+) and $55 for Juniors.
