9:39 pm 05/23/15--Much of the same goodness for Sunday - soft snow, sunshine and even warmer temps. Happy Memorial Day weekend skiers and riders.

Snow coverage is still top-to-bottom on our one open expert trail, Superstar. It's getting thin in spots so walking may be required at some point this weekend. Our groomers are taking it easy to preserve the snow - so just one pass down the middle to reinforce the narrow section is the norm each morning.

Existing terrain is for advanced skiers and riders only. Be aware of spring conditions and thin cover; ski or ride with care.

In observance of Memorial Day, all active duty, retired and honorably discharged members of the U.S. Military who visit Killington will receive a complimentary lift ticket on Monday, May 25. Just present a valid U.S. Military, U.S. Retired Military I.D., a copy of your DD214 form (photo ID required) or discharge certificate (photo ID required) at K-1 Guest Services, located in Killington Sports. Thank you for your service.

K-1 Lodge will be open through Monday too, offering tickets, rentals and guest services from Killington Sports (lower level). Food and beverage service will be available at K-1 Cafe, with Mahogany Ridge and Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars open for all your apres ski needs, including live music on Saturday and Sunday.

The Superstar Express Quad will run 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Memorial Day. Stay tuned right here for updates.

Looking Ahead
We want to prepare you for the possibility this will be the last weekend. As we've said all along, Mother Nature will decide when we pull the plug, and she's getting insistent. We do plan to run the lift on Monday June 1 and tickets will be complimentary that day. There will most definitely be multiple mandatory walking sections by then but if skiing or riding in June is on your bucket list, this could be your chance.

As for the weekend of May 29-31, we don't currently plan to operate because we just don't think the snow will hold up well enough to handle the weekend traffic. If cooler temperatures prevail and the snow holds up we will reassess closer to the weekend.

Events & Activities
Please note that the Killington Stage Race road cycling race will be finishing in the K-1 area throughout the day on Sunday May 24. Please be aware of the cyclists and follow the directions given by course marshals.

The Killington Golf Course is open this weekend as well, offering the unique opportunity to ski, ride, and golf all in the same day. Special early season pricing is as follows: $30 for 18 holes, $20 for 9 holes, $10 for cart rental, all prices subject to tax. As always, the price of your round can be deducted from the price of a Golf Season Pass.
