4:55 pm 12/09/13--The Beast got lucky on Monday. Instead of the mixed bag of weather in the forecast, we got snow! Not a lot, but every little bit helps. As an added bonus, snowmakers were able to continue pumping out the white stuff.
We plan to have 39 trails and 10 lifts for Tuesday. We'll groom 36 trails, but we're going to keep the groomers off of Cascade for the soft bump fans among us. Snowmakers have been working diligently day and night to get some new trails open, with upper Bittersweet and lower Superstar at the top of the list. We should have those by Wednesday, and then we can talk about the trails that will debut for the weekend. The Beast has good things in store for you.
Mouse Run Terrain Park is open with 21 features for your park riding pleasure.
Bunny Buster will be closed for race training on Monday and Highline will be close 9:00-12:00. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
K-1, Snowshed, and Ramshead Base Lodges will be open this week with all services, including tickets, rentals, retail and food service. Snow sports lessons for all ages and abilities will be available at Snowshed and Ramshead, and learn-to carpet lifts are scheduled to operate at both base areas as well.
The weather for the week looks great for continued snowmaking and terrain expansion. Snowmakers have already been busy setting up guns for the next objectives which include Highroad and the Needles Eye area.
All operations are weather dependent and, at this time of year, things can change unexpectedly. Keeping your browser pointed right here at killington.com is the best way to stay informed with up-to-the-minute information.
We hope that you love the mountain as much as we do, and treat it and fellow skiers and riders accordingly. Please remain in control, courteous and aware.
