4:59 pm 03/29/15--Monday's forecast is a snowy one at The Beast and snow is always welcome here, even when it comes just days from April 1st. We could see several inches of fresh stuff throughout the day, enough to soften surfaces and make the mountain look even more white and wintry than it already does. More than 90% of Killington terrain is open for skiing and riding this week and that means more than 1420 acres of terrain; the most skiing and riding in the East.
77 trails made the grooming plan for Monday and that list includes nearly all of our easier terrain plus a selection of advanced favorites like Double Dipper, Outer Limits, and Highline. Mogul fans will find bumps to bash in seeded mogul zones located on Outer Limits and Mouse Trap as well as on natural terrain trails like Conclusion and Royal Flush. Key lifts are scheduled from 8:00 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 is the only lift operating, we will run Superstar Express until 5:00 p.m. on each day that it scheduled.
More than 100 jumps, jibs, boxes, and rails, plus a Superpipe and a Mininpipe, reside 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.
