1:46 pm 11/21/14--
Update: 2 inches on the ground and the snow is coming down! The Beast is already home to the most skiing and riding terrain in the East and right now it's also home to ideal snowmaking weather; which means we'll be dropping ropes on a whole lot more terrain as we head into the weekend and Thanksgiving week.

Single digit temps overnight allowed Killington snowmakers to lay down even more of those wonderful white flakes. 2 new trails were added to the mix on Thursday including black diamond favorite Lower East Fall. Both upper and lower East Fall will be under the guns all night and ready for soft turns at 9:00 a.m. 16 trails will be groomed for Friday, and you can Expect 4 lifts to turn first thing, with Snowdon Quad coming online at some point for its debut - making for a total of 5 lifts. Speaking of lifts, we expect to have as many as seven available this weekend, with the addition of the Superstar Express and Canyon Quads for Saturday. Lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Saturday, Sunday, and peak dates.

Please note that available terrain is for advanced skiers and riders; no easier terrain is available at this time.
