New Snow, Tons of Activities for Presidents Week
Posted February 17, 2012
Just in case you hadn’t heard, it snowed last night and we had some squalls this morning. Yup, looks like Mother Nature will help out our snowmakers and add to our snow covered trails just in time for Presidents Week. Whether you are off for the weekend or the entire week, you’ll want to check out what’s going on at Killington Resort.
We’ve been dropping ropes, skiers and riders can expect 45 miles of open terrain and 92 trails for all ability levels spread across six peaks served by 21 lifts. Oh yeah, did we mention that we’ll be making SNOW this weekend, too! We’ll continue to build our base for spring skiing and riding as well as keeping our trails in great conditions with spot guns placed across our six peaks.
If parks are your thing, we’ve got you covered. Three parks with over 90 features combined are open and so is our 22’ Superpipe at Bear Mountain.
We wanted to let you in on our full-throttle line up of activities during Presidents Week that includes adventure dining excursion, tubing, sleigh rides, live music, parties as well as the chance to meet an Olympic athlete. Skip the crowded Presidents Week sales at the mall and join us for non-stop excitement on and off the mountain.
