4:40 pm 04/24/15--The weekend is here, skiers and riders and so, apparently, is winter. Cool temperatures will prevail this weekend, helping to stabilize conditions and keep the trail count high. Lower than expected temperatures won't dampen high, spring spirits though, so come on out and enjoy the last weekend of April here in Killington.
The K-1 Express Gondola, Superstar Express, and Snowdon Quad are scheduled for Saturday and all three will operate from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Our grooming team is still hard at work every night and for Saturday they will lay down fresh corduroy on 31 trails including Superstar, Bittersweet, and Cascade. Great Northern will be groomed from the summit too, for skiers and riders looking for an intermediate cruise. As temperatures rise, bumps will soften on natural snow trails like Double Dipper and Down Draft.
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 triple and Superstar Express lifts are scheduled to 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.
