4:15 pm 04/20/15--The Peak Lodge is closed Wednesday due to passing inclement weather. Thank you for understanding.
Its precipitating at Killington, we know this for certain. However, it might be snow, or sleet, or rain or a mixed bag. As a weather system moves through the region, temperatures are fluctuating and elevation is playing a big role in what actually lands on the mountain. While ski patrol has closed most natural terrain during this spat of precipitation, nothing is expected to freeze overnight, and we expect the trail count to jump back into the seventies as early as Wednesday. Groomers will stay off all but 12 trails, meaning softened steeps like Superstar await.
Bring a waterproof layer and a sense of adventure and check out terrain from Needle's Eye to Snowdon Mountain. Lifts are scheduled from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Open terrain is for intermediate and advanced skiers only. Be aware of spring conditions and thin cover; ski or ride with care. Food, drinks, rentals, equipment repair, Killington Sports and lift tickets are available at the K-1 Base Lodge. Snow Sports Lessons have ended for the season.
As a spring bonus the K-1 Express Gondola and Peak lodge will operate for an extra week, through April 26. The K-1 Express, Snowdon Quad and Superstar Express lifts will operate until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday April 25 and thereafter the Superstar Express will operate until 5:00 p.m. on each day that it is scheduled.

The Killington Parks Crew is still building and they wont quit until all the snow is gone. Check out the Superstar Rail Yard, open daily with 6 fresh features.
Operating Day: 170
