4:34 pm 04/01/15--One of the great things about early spring is that you can have it both ways - crisp corduroy in the morning and sun-warmed bumps in the afternoon. That's exactly the kind of day we're expecting Thursday with temperatures rising into the low 40s by afternoon under clearing skies.
You'll find that crisp corduroy on 69 groomed trails Thursday morning including most terrain at Snowshed and Ramshead, plus more advanced choices like Cascade, Downdraft, and Superstar. Needles Eye and Highline will be groomed for training in the morning, but open for skiing and riding as they soften in the afternoon.
Mogul fans should find plenty of softening bumps on trails skipped by the groomers. Check out favorites like Vagabond, Upper Escapade and sunny Royal Flush. Key lifts are scheduled from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
As a spring bonus, key lifts* will operate until 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays, weather permitting, so you can enjoy the late afternoon sunshine. As the season winds down and Superstar Express is the only lift operating, we will run it until 5:00 p.m. on each day that it scheduled.
We have more than 100 jumps, jibs, boxes, and rails, plus a Superpipe and a Mininpipe, ready to shred in our 5 unique parks. Get the lowdown.
Killington tickets and passes are always valid at Pico Mountain so be sure to check out our friendly sister just a few minutes west. Combined, the two resorts currently offer more than 80 miles of open terrain which is, by far, the most in the East. Get the details at picomountain.com.
*Lifts scheduled until 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays, conditions permitting: North Ridge Triple, K-1 Express, Snowdon Quad, Superstar Express, Ramshead Express, Snowshed Express, Bear Mountain Quad, Northbrook Quad, Sunrise Village Triple, Skyeship Stage 1 and 2, Skye Peak Express.
This weekend, reward yourself at the World of Adventure Dos Equis Apres Ski Party featuring the XX Feast of the Brave, live music and Dos Equis beer at the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars. Are you up for the adventure?
