Weekend Outlook for December 8-9
Posted December 6, 2012
Ssshhh…Can you hear that? Listen carefully. Anything? That’s the humming sound of our powerful snowmaking system – it’s cranking out snow on Killington Peak, Skye Peak, Snowdon Mountain and Ramshead Mountain. Plus, we’re piling up the snow on Snowshed Slope for additionally beginner terrain. Do you hear it now? Good.
A cold front moved into Killington Wednesday afternoon and our snowmakers took full advantage of the opportunity to make snow on Great Northern, Bunny Buster, Mouse Trap, Upper Skyelark, Lower Bittersweet and Caper – just to name a few. We will continue to make snow and expand terrain as long as conditions permit. What’s that, you want to help? Sweet, start by busting out your best snow dance and be sure to think SNOW!
With snowmaking back online, we will be offering skiing and riding for all ability levels on 14 miles of terrain off four peaks this weekend. Killington Peak, Skye Peak and Snowdon Mountain will feature primarily advanced and intermediate terrain. For easier terrain (a.k.a. green circle trails), head up to Ramshead Mountain and lap Easy Street, Caper and Lower Great Northern, or head over to Snowshed Slope.
Additionally, the early season park on Mouse Run will be open with 16 features and two jumps. Speaking of parks, our talented Park Crew started setting up the Rails 2 Riches venue Thursday, check out all the action under the lights at 4:45 p.m. slopeside next to the K-1 Lodge. And get this, the Rails 2 Riches set up will be open to the public on Sunday, December 9.
The K-1 Express Gondola will open at 8:00 a.m. and so will the North Ridge Triple (cue applause because this is new) Saturday and Sunday, other key lifts will spin at 8:30 a.m. Be sure to check out the Conditions Report for the latest information regarding operating hours, trail, lift and weather information or check out photos to see what the conditions look like.
