4:38 pm 02/22/17--Although we like to hang on to winter weather just as long as we can here in Killington, we do have to admit that spring skiing and riding are some of our favorite things to do. You'll definitely want to join us for some soft snow turns on Thursday, when temperatures will climb back into the 40s under mostly sunny skies.

Rising temperatures today softened snow surfaces across the mountain and allowed Killington Patrol to reopen an bunch of natural snow and gladed trails, bringing our trail count back up to 146. With the Natural Woods area back open, The Beast once again offers the most skiing and riding in the East.

Our grooming team will put in another solid night's work, smoothing and flattening 85 trails for Thursday morning. Youre bound to find a few of your favorites among the list of groomed runs, which includes all of our easier terrain, a selection of intermediate cruisers (like Bittersweet, Chute and High Road) plus a bunch of The Beast's signature steeps (like Superstar, Outer Limits, Ovation and Double Dipper).

Killington Parks
In all, Killington offers 6 distinct terrain parks, dotted with 115 features for all riding levels. Groms and those new to park riding should head for the Easy Street and Lil' Stash progression parks on Ramshead, while more experienced riders take on Timberline, Neffland, The Stash and Dream Maker, which is home to The Beast's biggest jump line. Aspiring halfpipe pros will enjoy the recently rebuilt Timberline Minipipe.

Remember, your Killington ticket or pass is always valid at Pico Mountain, located just a short drive to our west. With two resorts for one price, a Killington Lift Ticket offers by far the most open terrain in Eastern North America.
