3:42 pm 12/22/14--The K Cloud is hanging around keeping things fresh, and the opening of the Skyeship Express Gondola upper stage was the icing on Monday's cake. Even with the R word in the short term forecast, we are anticipating peak to creek runs and both stages of Skyeship for the weekend.

Our dedicated mountain operations team will keep snow guns burying trails to the bottom of Bear Mountain and Needles Eye until temperatures rise to the margins in the early morning hours, and will groom 60 trails for Tuesday including Superstar, Cascade, and most easier terrain. Lower Skyelark, Wildfire and Vertigo are among the trails remaining natural for your bump bashing pleasure.

The Beast has 12 lifts scheduled to turn and service 54 miles of open terrain, already in mid-winter form. Key lifts spin at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, and lifts will operate until 4:00 p.m.

Terrain Parks
The Killington Parks Crew brings you not one, not two, but three parks: Easy Street with 10 features in the Lil' Stash for progressing riders, Reason with 6 features at North Ridge and Mouse Run Park with 22 features at the top of Snowdon. Timberline is up next, and stay tuned - the snow guns have been blasting The Stash top to bottom.

Base Lodges
Bear Mountain, Snowshed, Ramshead, and K-1 Base Lodges are open with all services, and the Peak Lodge is open daily with food and drink service from one hour after the lifts open until 3:00 p.m.

Remember, your Killington lift pass grants you access to Pico Mountain too. Combined, the two resorts are currently offering over 180 trails totaling 70+ miles of open terrain - the most in the East. Get the details at picomountain.com.

We open first each year for a reason. The first 50 days of the longest season in the East are already behind us, so we offer you 50 Shades of Beast.
