12:53 pm 11/28/14--The holiday shopping can wait, skiers and riders, because the Beast is the place to be this Black Friday. You'll find the most miles of skiing and riding in the East at Killington and, after 13 inches of fresh snow this week, you'll find the best skiing and riding here too.

The Beast's intrepid team of trail grooming specialists will be out all night, laying down a fresh surface on 33 trails for skiers and riders of all ability levels. Friday will mark the debut of the Snowshed trail, as well as the Snowshed Express Quad; a perfect combination for learning skiers and riders. Other easier terrain will include Easy Street and Caper at Ramshead, as well as Lower Great Northern. Of course, the Beast has a reputation to uphold, so there will be plenty to pique the interest of intermediate and advanced skiers and riders too; from groomed expert trails such as Lower East Fall to double-black-diamond thrillers like Downdraft Headwall. 11 lifts are scheduled to operate until 4:00 p.m. Friday and key lifts will start at 8:00 a.m.

Terrain Parks
Head up to the Reason Park where youll find 8 features lovingly crafted by the Kparks crew.

Be sure to check out Holiday 101 for all the latest information on base lodges and resort services available now and through the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Snow Sports Lessons
Private lessons for ages 4 and up as well as adult group lessons for all ability levels are available at Snowshed Base Lodge; Youth group lessons are available at Ramshead Base Lodge.
