UPDATE as of 4.18.13: Extensions Aren't Just for Taxes.
Posted April 10, 2013
The calendar says spring, and our peaks say WINTER! There is so much snow, that we have decided today to make sure there are plenty of opportunities for more skiing and riding off Killington Peak, Snowdon Mountain and Skye Peak. Check out the latest updates as of 5:00 p.m. Thursday, April 18:

Conditions permitting, K-1 and Superstar will spin April 27-28 on the same schedule. K-1 Base Lodge is fully open with regular operating hours. We plan to ski and ride daily through May 5, 2013, and weekends only starting May 11, conditions permitting.
original plan from April 10:
Killington continues to extend the season this year due to the millions of gallons of water our snowmakers made into snow on all of our mountain areas, and we've got the inside scoop on the plan from Director of Mountain Operations, Jeff Temple. So, ride your bike, tune up your golf swing and keep skiing and riding – our trails are still covered with lots of snow.
- The Superstar Express Quad will stay open until 5:00 p.m. daily from April 15 - May 5, 2013. Just for spring, you’ll find a brand new rail garden for park fans. Black flies or bust, the Superstar Express Quad will continue to operate on weekends only beginning May 11, 2013, and marching on to June, conditions permitting.
- The K-1 Express Gondola, accessing the entire upper mountain, will spin through April 21, 2013, with access to terrain for all ability levels. Plus, look for additional lift access to the Canyon and Snowdon Mountain for the weekend of April 20-21, 2013.
- Bear Mountain, with the sought-after spring conditions on Outer Limits, will open again this coming weekend, April 13-14, 2013. Look for the Dream Maker Terrain Park, barbecuing, and even take on the open mogul course from the Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge.
- The Needle’s Eye Area will operate through the weekend, with great eastern-facing exposure for soft snow conditions.
It’s one of our favorite parts of the ski season with warm, sunny days, weekends filled with music, and events like the Vermont Brewfest, pond skimming and more. So, put off the yard work for a few more weeks and enjoy the soft, carvable snow surface on top of a deep base, the sun in your face and an Adirondack chair at the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars!
