4:27 pm 01/16/17--Skiers and riders who joined The Beast on Martin Luther King Day enjoyed a crisp morning start with inverted clouds followed by endless views of the surrounding mountains under sunny skies. A cold Monday night means the snowmakers will stay busy until temps rise in the morning and we shut the system down, but fret not, as Mother Nature is poised to pick up where our snowmakers leave off. Snow is expected to start after noon, with 4-6 inches currently forecasted to fall through Wednesday morning.

But first things first, back to the snowmaking plan. Snow guns on Lower East Fall and Ovation have come offline, but we are running on Upper Bear Claw, lower Great Eastern and Lower Wildfire all night long. The beautiful soft bumps skied in by our guests under the guns on Ovation and East Fall will remain for Tuesday, while the groomers attack 71 other trails.

Expect fresh corduroy on Cascade, Needle's Eye, Great Northern and Snowshed Slope, among others. In addition to bumps on East Fall and Ovation, Outer Limits at Bear is still loaded with moguls, and the snowmaking whales on Superstar aren't going anywhere.

The Stash is now open, boosting Killington's count to over 100 features spread across 6 unique parks. NeffLand Terrain Park, on Lower Timberline, has 23 outer-space themed features. Mouse Run and Timberline Parks have 22 feature each. Groms and those new to park riding should head for our progression parks, Easy Street and the Lil' Stash, both on Ramshead.

Remember, your Killington ticket or pass is always valid at Pico Mountain, located just a short drive to our west. With two resorts accessible on one ticket, Killington offers the most variety in Eastern North America.
