4:43 pm 04/19/15--Some people celebrate Patriot's Day by running more than 26 miles in Boston; that sounds hard. Do yourself a favor and celebrate it here in Killington. We'll even give you a ride to the top. In fact, in honor of the holiday, were going to run an extra lift so you'll have three to choose from. Sure, Boston throws a great party after the marathon but we've got something better: apres ski.
Those three lifts will serve a whopping 75 trails on Monday, a generous trail count for late April. Superstar, Cascade, and East Fall will be among the 31 freshly groomed trails but we'll leave the moguls standing on a handful of trails too, like Double Dipper and Down Draft. We are expecting some wet weather and we might even see a few snow flurries so bring a waterproof layer and enjoy some soft snow skiing and riding. Lifts are scheduled from 8:00 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 and food and drinks are available daily at the Peak 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.
