The BUZZ @ Killington 3/16
Posted by web master2 on March 16, 2012 1:20 PM EDT
Temps are warm but conditions are KILLER!
Friday's looking like another day of warm temperatures, spring conditions, and soft corduroy at Killington!
We'll be offering terrain for every ability level across our 6 peaks, and we plan to groom 60 of our 95 open trails overnight. We're talking lots of big, soft, natural bumps for you to bash in addition to soft spring corduroy for your edges. You've heard forecasts calling for showers? Yeah, so have we, but it's nothing that a good jacket and some warm weather wax won't fix. So get that gear in order and come make some turns with us!
We have 15 lifts scheduled to spin on Friday, with key lifts at 9:00 a.m. The Skyeship Express Gondola Stage I and II will open at 9:30 a.m. Be sure to catch a ride on the gondola at least once during the day; the Skyeship Base is scheduled to close on March 18, so get those turns while you can!
Our park crew is powering through these warm temperatures with a whole smorgasbord of features for you. We've got a total of 28 features in Timberline and 32 all-natural features in the Stash. The Under Armour MTN Dream Maker Terrain Park will have 21 features to add to the list, and you can hit the freshly cut 22-foot Superpipe if you're feeling brave.
Upper Bunny Buster and Highline will be closed for racing on Friday, with Highline reopening to the public in the afternoon. Thanks for your understanding.
The K-1, Snowshed, Ramshead, Bear and Skyeship Lodges will be open. Key lifts are scheduled to be open from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., with the Skyeship Express Gondola Stages I and II spinning from 9:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Lift tickets will be $79 for Adults (19-64), $67 for Young Adults/Seniors (13-18/65+) and $55 for Juniors.
