5:29 pm 02/24/17--Well, skiers and riders, there is definitely some strange weather afoot at the Big K. Highs on Saturday will creep into the 50s again, which, while pleasant, is certainly unusual for February. But there's good news: it looks like seasonable temperatures will return by Sunday morning. And even better news: Killington snowmakers will be back to work on Sunday, rebuilding the stockpiles on Superstar.

While we wait for snowmaking temperatures to return, we might as well enjoy this balmy weather and spring snow. Overnight, Killington groomers will roll fresh corduroy into 73 trails, including all of our easier terrain, a selection of intermediate cruisers (like Cruise Control and Bittersweet) plus several of The Beast's signature steeps (like Ovation, Superstar and Double Dipper).

Soft, spring snow makes the best moguls, and we'll have some to start the day on Outer Limits, and Mouse Trap. Of course, by afternoon moguls will be in the majority, covering many of our steeper trails. Patrol has kept a few glades trails open as well, like Low Rider, Somwehere and Roundabout Glade.

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.
