2:43 pm 11/27/15--Thanks to a bountiful harvest by the Killington snowmakers, The Beast has expanded operations and now offers top-to-bottom terrain from three mountain areas. Intermediate and advanced skiers and riders can enjoy fresh corduroy off the top of Skye Peak, Killington Peak and Snowdon Mountain, plus eight park features in the Reason Terrain Park.

While the crowds tussle for Black Friday savings at the lower elevations, we anticipate another gorgeous day of skiing and riding on 22 trails. Of those, 20 will be freshly groomed, including favorites like Skyelark, Upper Double Dipper, Ridge Run and Mouse Trap.

Our snowmakers are taking a much deserved rest during this mild spell, but will be lighting the system up again Saturday as temperatures drop back to a favorable level.

Please note that only advanced terrain is available from the Superstar Express Quad. The Ramshead and Snowshed Magic Carpets will operate for first-timers and learning skiers and snowboarders.

Hours of lift operation are 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Friday - Sunday.

The Beast Coaster and Skyeride are back for the Winter Season starting Friday November 27. Hours of operation are 11:00-5:00 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

Check out Thanksgiving 101 for all the details on our holiday operations.

Current ticket window prices are always displayed to the right of this report, but remember, as open terrain increases, window rates will go up. The best price for any given day is available, with 24 hours' notice, in our e-ticket store.
