We have seen some serious weather at Killington since Thursday, and it’s brought us 18 inches of natural snow, great snowmaking conditions along with tree skiing and riding! It also brought us some bitter cold, but never fear, skiers and riders. Not only can you expect warmer temperatures on the way, but our Mountain Operations crew has been working around the clock to get the Skye Peak Express Quad spinning Tuesday. Additionally, the Bear Mountain Quad will be back soon. Thanks for your patience, and we'll keep you posted.
We plan to continue snowmaking on Conclusion and Timberline, and working to expand on Great Eastern to the Skyeship Base. We’re also looking to expand to Dream Maker soon, so stay tuned!
Expect to see nearly 50 miles of open terrain on Tuesday across six peaks for all ability levels including Sunrise Mountain. The snowcats will be prowling on 59 trails, so come and get your early morning corduroy. Look for spot guns keeping your favorite trails fresh, as well.
Middle and Lower Skyeburst, 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, the Sunrise Village Triple and the K-1 Express Gondola.
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. And look for The Stash to come soon, because we’re making snow on it now!
In addition, the K-1, Snowshed, Ramshead and Bear 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.
