6:25 pm 11/26/14--Dust off your powder guns and fat skis, skiers and riders; there's 5 fresh inches on the ground and it's still coming down hard at Killington. The weatherman is calling for a significant accumulation by Thanksgiving morning and, with first chair at 8:00 a.m., you can have your powder and eat your turkey too.
On Thursday the Beast will be thankfully enjoying fresh snow on 26 groomed trails served by 8 lifts, three of which will be of the high-speed-express variety. The season debut of the Ramshead Express Quad, the Snowshed Learn-To Carpet, and the Snowplay Carpet mark the arrival of terrain for skiers and riders of all ability levels. Snowmakers will be splitting their time between resurfacing open terrain and expanding onto Snowshed Slope and the Beasts signature Superstar trail. We plan to spin the Snowshed Express Quad on Friday, and be riding under the guns on Superstar by Saturday. Key lifts will operate from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The Reasson Park is open daily with 8 features.
