7:47 pm 02/08/16--Say what you will about the weather so far this season, skiers and riders, but a very real winter chill is back. As darkness fell on The Beast tonight, snow began to fall as well. We expect snow showers and flurries accompanied by excellent snowmaking temperatures over the next few days, and that's good news for a mountain operations team eager to improve trail surfaces and the total count before the weekend.
Overnight and during the day tomorrow our snowmakers will focus their efforts on Snowshed, Upper Great Northern, and key zones like lower Double Dipper, lower Great Eastern and the future home of NeffLand. Stay tuned for a Neffland opening announcement later in the week.
We will again groom most of our open terrain overnight, with the same two steep exceptions as Monday: Outer Limits and Superstar. But dont forget you can enjoy free refills all day on the latter thanks to our friendly snowmakers.
Killington Parks meticulously maintains four terrain parks 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.
Key lifts spin 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays, and peak days, and 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. midweek. Check the Base Areas section to the right of this report for services available by lodge for current day.
