6:56 pm 11/25/15--Happy Thanksgiving, snow sports fans! You might want to put off that turkey-day dinner and hit the slopes early because The Beast is expanding operations again - we're opening the Superstar Express Quad at 10:00 a.m. for advanced skiers and snowboarders.

Our snowmakers have outdone themselves again, taking the Skyelark trail from bare to beautiful corduroy in just over 48 hours. With 22 trails open for Thanksgiving Day, Killington has the most skiing and riding in the East.

Snowmkaing will taper off sometime early Thursday morning as temperatures rise, making for excellent top-to-bottom skiing and snowboarding on all 22 trails, 20 of which will feature fresh groomed corduroy. Enjoy corduroy cruising on trails like Rime, Skyelark, and Bunny Buster. Intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders will find top-to-bottom terrain from the summits of Killington, Snowdon and Skye peaks, as well as eight park features in the Reason Terrain Park. 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. Thursday- 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.
