ABC'S GOOD MORNING AMERICA TO BROADCAST LIVE FROM KILLINGTON PEAK SUNDAY

09/30/2008

KILLINGTON, Vt. – Killington Resort welcomes ABC’s Good Morning America and their “50 States in 50 Days” tour this Sunday atop Killington Peak.

GMA’s Marysol Castro will broadcast weather and Vermont feature segments live from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. and the public is invited to be part of the production. Killington Resort will offer free roundtrip rides on the K-1 Gondola from 6:00 to 9:30 a.m. and a free continental breakfast at the Peak Restaurant. And, just like the Times Square studios, folks are encouraged to bring signs, smiling faces and be ready to cheer at the Peak!

"On my way to shoot our features in Vermont last week for Sunday’s show, a friend said, 'You're going to God's country.'  It is true. This state is so beautiful, the people so kind, and we're so happy to be broadcasting live from Killington Peak,” Castro said. “I just hope we get invited back when it snows!"

“With peak foliage viewing expected this weekend, we’re excited to host Good Morning America and open the gondola early for those that want to be part of the live show and enjoy the beautiful fall colors,” said Patricia Ryan, Killington’s director of marketing, sales and reservations.

The scenic ride on the K-1 Gondola to the highest lift-served terrain in Vermont offers an opportunity to view the foliage colors in the heart of the Green Mountains. In addition, the summit of Killington Peak, a short 10-minute hike from the top of the gondola, provides a panoramic view of five states and Canada on a crisp, clear autumn day. Beginning Saturday, the K-1 Gondola will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Monday, October 13 for foliage viewing.
