8:50 am 12/20/14--Killington snowmakers continue to make hay while the sun shines, so to speak, taking advantage of seasonable temperatures to make as much snow as scientifically possible in this holiday period. Look for sweet turns on fresh machine-made snow throughout the day Saturday. Snowmaking will be in progress on Skyeburst, Wildfire, Downdraft, and Needles Eye, and spot guns will be located around the resort, softening and improving high traffic areas.
With 13 lifts scheduled to turn this weekend and 53 miles of open terrain, the Beast is already in mid-winter form. 61 trails will be groomed for smooth corduroy cruising, including the vast majority of easier terrain and such expert favorites as East Fall, Superstar, and Cascade. Key lifts will spin at 8:00 a.m. and lifts will operate until 4:00 p.m.
Dont miss the Jingle Jam park competition in the Mouse Run Park on Saturday. The Killington Parks Crew brings you not one, not two, but three parks: Easy Street with 7 features in the Lil' Stash for progressing riders, Reason with 6 features at North Ridge and Mouse Run Park with 20 features at the top of Snowdon. Timberline is up next, and stay tuned - the snow guns have been blasting The Stash top to bottom.
Bear Mountain, Snowshed, Ramshead, and K-1 Base Lodges are open with all services, and the Peak Lodge is open daily with food and drink service from one hour after the lifts open until 3:00 p.m.
Remember, your Killington lift pass grants you access to Pico Mountain too. Combined, the two resorts are currently offering 182 trails totaling 72 miles of open terrain - the most open terrain in the East. Get the details at picomountain.com.
We make sure to open first each year for a reason. The first 40 days of the longest season in the East are already behind us.
