Beast Ops :: The most open terrain in the East
Posted by The Beast on December 5, 2017
Our snowmaking team has been hard at work the past several weeks and they don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. With 17 miles of skiing and riding across 4 mountain peaks, Killington is offering the most open terrain in the East but we aren’t ones to rest on our laurels – expect big terrain expansion in the next few days and weeks as we work to provide even more open terrain. Of course, we’d love a little help from Mother Nature but in the meantime the most extensive snowmaking system in the East has us covered.
Our team has spent the last few days blanketing trails like Cascade, Bittersweet, Middle Ovation, Bear Trax and Upper Easy Street with fresh new snow. After today’s r*** passes we plan to let the snow on Cascade, Bittersweet and Middle Ovation drain before grooming and opening these favorites to the public later this week. We know you’re anxious to ski this terrain but trust us, it’ll be worth the extra wait.
As soon as snowmaking temperatures return, which is expected during the early morning hours of Wednesday, you’ll see our team back on Bear Trax and covering several new trails including Snowshed Slope, Learn to Ski Area, and Lower Easy Street. We plan to have these trails open for the upcoming weekend.
Looking ahead to next week, our snowmakers have their sights set on Needles Eye, Vertigo, Lower High Road and Northbrook Trail to kick off the week with Timberline and Conclusion to follow. The march towards Bear Mountain will be up next. As always, we’re constantly reviewing our plans and forecasts and encourage you to stay tuned to the conditions report at Killington.com/conditions for the latest updates on operations.
