6:20 pm 02/11/16--All those flurries are starting to pile up here in Killington, with the weekly total pushing up to 6 inches already. That fresh snow allowed Killington patrol to drop some ropes on Thursday, adding 6 trails including Upper Wildfire, FIS, and Upper Royal Flush. Cascade moved back into the open category too, after extensive resurfacing from both the grooming and snowmaking teams. Killington snowmakers continue to bury trails all across the resort, so look for soft turns under the guns on Cascade again on Friday, and on Superstar, Highline, Upper Great Northern, and Mouse Trap as well.
Our grooming team will pack the powder on 61 trails overnight, hitting most of our beginner and intermediate terrain, plus a few advanced options like Panic Button, Skyelark, and Needles Eye. The groomers will again stay off Double Dipper, Superstar, and Cascade, leaving soft snow and bumps for expert skiing and riding.
Killington Parks meticulously maintains four terrain parks (and counting) containing 80 features that break down like this: 19 features in Mouse Run Park, 25 in the Stash, 20 features in Timberline and another 16 in Easy Street and Lil Stash Progression Park. NeffLand is up next, expected to open this weekend with double-digit features including fresh paint designs on everything, even the two new monster features going in the snow.
