4:00 pm 11/24/14--Monday was refreshingly warm with sweet, soft turns but unless you've been under a rock you've seen the forecast. Yes, snow is on the way.

We're not sure exactly how much at this point, but we do know for certain that as temps drop on Tuesday, snowmaking will roar back to life, helping with our aggressive expansion plan to make sure Thanksgiving weekend is one to remember at The Beast.

On Tuesday morning our team of dedicated groomers will hit the hill to push snow and make sure coverage is wall to wall and that your carving is as delicious as turkey day dinner.

We'll keep an eye on the forecast and update you with our most recent models, but you can bet that natural snow will assist the guns to connect terrain on every mountain area from Skye Peak over to Ramshead, including beginner terrain on Snowshed.

For Thanksgiving weekend we plan to be skiing Superstar under the guns, along with Blue Heaven, Launch Pad, High Line and Cascade. While we're at it this weekend, we're going to crank on the snowmaking over at Pico Mountain too.

Be sure you add thanks for Killington snowmakers to your holiday ritual, along with some soft turns on the mountain!

Four lifts, including the Superstar Express Quad, are scheduled to turn Tuesday and key lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Please note that available terrain is for advanced skiers and riders; no easier terrain is available at this time.

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.
