WINTER STORM DROPS 19 INCHES OF NEW SNOW ON VERMONT’S KILLINGTON RESORT

02/24/2010

KILLINGTON, Vt. – The first of two major winter storms has dropped 19 inches of snow on Vermont’s Killington Resort since Tuesday afternoon. The National Weather Service is forecasting an additional 7-13 inches through Wednesday night.

Another winter storm is expected to deliver more snow Thursday into Friday.

“So far this is the most snow we have received since the first of the year, and it comes at a great time as we’re heading into the second half of the season,” said Patricia Ryan, Killington’s director of sales, marketing and reservations. “The phone lines at Killington Central Reservations have been ringing off the hook since the snow starting falling on Tuesday.”

While skiers and riders are rejoicing with the outstanding powder conditions, road crews from the Vermont Department of Transportation are out in full force plowing, sanding and salting area roads.

Ski and Stay lodging packages are still available for this weekend, starting at just $113 per person, per night.

To date, Killington has received 145 inches of snow with an average mid-mountain base depth of 34-44 inches. Killington averages 250 inches annually, including more than 80 inches from March 1st through the end of the season.

Photos and video of today’s snowfall are available in the media room section of www.Killington.com
