This Just In: We've Expanded Snowmaking to Bear
Posted December 20, 2012
Extra, extra, read all about it: we’ve expanded snowmaking to Needle’s Eye and Bear Mountain! Yes, that’s correct, we’re making snow on Upper Skyeburst, Bear Trax, Blue Heaven, Skyewalker, Northway, Panic Button, Middle Needle’s Eye, and the list goes on and on. You get the picture; we’re making snow on five peaks! Five peaks! (We’re so excited that we needed to mention it twice.) So stay tuned, we’ll be making turns on the south side before you know it.
We’ve been skiing and riding daily for the last 46 days (technically, we opened October 13-14 for Pass Holder Appreciation Weekend), it’s your turn now. We have a full line up of events through the New Year and fantastic lodging deals. What are you waiting for? You should start planning your ski trip to Killington Resort now.
For the upcoming weekend, we’ll have over 20 miles of open terrain for all ability levels – yes, that’s the most open terrain in Vermont! Killington Peak, Skye Peak and Snowdon Mountain will feature primarily advanced terrain, easier terrain can be found on Ramshead Mountain and Snowshed Slope.
The early season terrain park on Mouse Run is going strong with 18 features and two jumps. As for the sweet features, there’s a variety from small to large – something for every park rider including features from the 2012 Rails 2 Riches rail jam.
The K-1 Express Gondola and North Ridge Triple will open at 8:00 a.m. for first tracks Saturday and Sunday, other key lifts will spin at 8:30 a.m. The K-1, Snowshed and Ramshead Lodges will be open. Starting Saturday, December 15, lift tickets will be $88 for adults (19-64), $75 for seniors (65+) and $68 for youth (7-18).
