Very cold temperatures may cause lift delays on Sunday morning. Stay tuned to killington.com/conditions for updates.
5:18 pm 02/13/16--February 14 is a big day here in Killington - operating day number 100, in fact. There are a few skiers and riders out there joining the 100 Club today, so congratulations to them! Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day too. It is going to be a cold one, so be smart: cover up, grab an extra layer, check your Valentine for signs of frostbite, and take frequent hydration/snack breaks. We have a few more tips for cold weather comfort on our Insider Blog.
Killington Patrol went on a rope-dropping spree Saturday, boosting the trail count from 75 to 96 open trails. Old Superstar, Powerline, Cascade Headwall, Vagabond and Great Bear all moved into the open column with the help of this past week's 9 inches of fresh snowfall.
The snowmakers will take Sunday off, thanks to frosty temperatures, but the grooming team works in the comfort of heated snowcats, so they will smooth and flatten 64 trails for Sunday morning. The majority of beginner and intermediate terrain will be groomed, as will a selection of advanced and expert trails like Superstar, Needles Eye, Skyeburst and highline.
Big news from Killington Parks: Neffland is open. The brand new 18-feature setup opened Saturday, as did 2 features in the Stash Woods that together bring our feature count up to 100. The five open parks at Killington are the Stash on Skye Peak; Mouse Run on Snowdon; and Timberline, Neffland, and Easy Street, all on Ramshead.
Key lifts spin 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. each day through Sunday Feb. 21. Check the Base Areas section to the right of this report for services available by lodge for current day.
