6:22 pm 02/12/16--Welcome to Presidents' Day weekend, skiers and riders! The weatherman is calling for some frosty weather, so be sure to cover up, grab an extra layer, and take frequent hydration/snack breaks. We've got a few more tips for cold weather comfort on our Insider Blog.
Although it might be chilly, we do expect some of the best skiing and riding of the season, after 7 inches of fresh snow and a strong period of highly productive snowmaking. Be sure to take a few runs on Cascade, Superstar, Double Dipper, and Mouse Trap - all freshly resurfaced by our snowmaking team.
Our snowmakers will get a well-deserved Saturday and Sunday off, leaving the trails clear for skiers and riders like you. The grooming team will have to wait for their next break though, because tonight they will groom 61 trails for smooth, comfortable cruising on Saturday. They will hit most of our beginner and intermediate terrain, plus a few advanced options like Superstar, Skyelark, and Needle's Eye. We'll keep the corduroy off Cascade, Double Dipper, and Outer Limits for another night for you soft bump and natural terrain fans.
Big news from Killington Parks for Saturday: Neffland is opening. We may see the opening delayed a bit beyond 8:00 a.m., but we do expect to unveil the brand new 19-feature setup sometime Saturday morning. That brings our total up to 99 features spread throughout 5 unique parks.
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.
