KILLINGTON, Vt. (October 12, 2012) Killington Resort welcomes Season Pass and Express Card holders back to the slopes for an exclusive day of early season skiing and riding on Saturday, October 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our dedicated snowmakers were able to fire up the snowguns on Rime in the North Ridge area on Thursday, October 11 and will continue to make snow as well as expand the terrain as long as conditions permit.

Early season conditions exist, walking is required and rock skis are recommended. Skiing and riding will be on advanced terrain only on the un-groomed Rime trail, providing roughly 600 vertical feet of terrain. No beginner terrain will be available at this time. The K-1 Express Gondola will provide uploading and downloading, skiers and riders will use the Peak Walkway to access Rime and will return to the K-1 Express Gondola via a short walk on the Peak Walkway.

“We wanted to thank our Season Pass and Express Card holders for their loyality to Killington Resort and offer early season skiing and riding to them,” stated Mike Solimano, president and general manager for Killington Resort. “We truly appreciate their support, and we are committed to providing the longest on-snow season as possible for all our guests.”

Our crews will re-evaluate the conditions on Saturday evening to determine if our Season Pass and Express Card holders appreciation event will continue on Sunday. October 14. Check Killington.com for the latest updates.

Additionally, the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars will be open featuring light fare and drinks.
