4:10 pm 12/21/14--Ideal snowmaking weather is hanging around and helping us with the annual march to the bottom of Great Eastern, and Sunday's half inch of fresh snow didn't hurt. Guns are blazing all the way to Route 4 and the opening of the Skyeship Express Gondola upper stage kicks off the week.
Our dedicated mountain operations team will keep snow guns burying Wildfire, Bear Cub and Great Eastern into Monday, and will groom 61 trails overnight including Superstar, Cascade, and most easier terrain. Lower Skyelark and Vagabond are among the trails remaining natural for your bump bashing pleasure.
The Beast has 13 lifts scheduled to turn Monday to service 54 miles of open terrain, already in mid-winter form. Key lifts spin at 9:00 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday, and lifts will operate until 4:00 p.m.
Bunny Buster and Highline trails are closed Monday for race training, thank you for understanding.
The Killington Parks Crew brings you not one, not two, but three parks: Easy Street with 10 features in the Lil' Stash for progressing riders, Reason with 6 features at North Ridge and Mouse Run Park with 22 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 over 180 trails totaling 73 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.
