2:55 pm 12/17/14--After two days of inverted temperatures and low elevation clouds, Wednesday brings mild temperatures and a triple digit trail count to The Beast. Wall to wall packed powder remains from Winter Storm Damon's visit, and despite a brief stormy snap coming our way, our grooming team will lay down creamy soft corduroy on key trails from boundary to boundary including Superstar, Great Northern and Snowshed Slope. Soft bumps remain on our natural snow trails as well as Cascade.
Bear Mountain is closed on Wednesday due to weather; we appreciate your understanding.
Were expecting natural snowfall Wednesday night, along with temperatures to get our snowmakers back to work. Stay tuned.
Eleven lifts are scheduled to turn, with key lifts from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
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.
Snowshed 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. Ramshead Base Lodge will only be open for youth Snow Sports Lessons and the Friendly Penguin Child Care Center Monday through Friday, but will be open with full services on the weekend.
Pico Mountain is open and your Killington lift pass is good there too. 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.
Operating Day: 45
