Up Next :: Adventure Center
Posted by The Beast on June 21, 2015
If you’ve visited Killington in the winter you already know The Beast is a prime destination for snow-loving adventure seekers, and this summer we're seriously cranking up the non-snow adventurers.
We broke ground on a $3.5 million summer expansion while skiers and snowboarders were still enjoying spring conditions on Superstar, and a patch of snow still lingers today. The massive project is advancing on schedule with construction expected to wrap for opening day of summer operations this Friday June 26, 2015.
Seven of eight new attractions will open to the public on June 26 including the Skye Ropes Course, Terra Maze, Skyeride, Roaring Brook Mining, Disc Golf Course, ATV/UTV and Segway tours. It all operates out of the brand new Snowshed Adventure Center, the new summer energy epicenter. Snowshed will also be home base for the 4800-foot Beast Mountain Coaster after its completion in late July.

The Killington Mountain Bike Park will also open for the season on June 26 from a new bike shop location in the Snowshed Lodge. Served daily by two lifts – the Snowshed Express Quad and K-1 Express Gondola - the Mountain Bike Park will feature expanded terrain for all ability levels including trails designed and built by Gravity Logic. K-1 Base Lodge will offer tickets and limited services for those that just want to hop on the gondola for mountain biking, hiking and scenic rides to Killington Peak.
After a long day in the summer sun, adventurers will find refreshment at the Snowshed Food Court, plus a relaxing outdoor patio ready for you and a cold beverage. And as always, head to the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars for live music during Friday and Saturday happy hours.
