4:56 pm 03/06/14--All the pieces are coming together for a fantastic weekend of skiing and riding The Beast! 3 inches of new snow in the last few days has been just enough to freshen-up the snow surfaces and boost the trail count; The Beast is now 91% open. The trail count isn't the only thing going up, the mercury is rising too. With temperatures creeping into the 20s for the first time in a while, and sunny skies predicted, you won't want to miss this weekend.
Friday the Beast is serving up 78 groomed trails in a variety of flavors, from steep favorites like Double Dipper and Superstar, to fun, family cruisers like Bear Trax, Cruise Control, and Great Eastern. Patrol has just dropped the ropes on Julio and Juanita, two of The Beast's legendary, experts-only gladed trails. If you want to give the glades a try, but aren't up for double black diamonds yet, check out intermediate Squeeze Play on Ramshead. Mogul aficionados will find 4 seeded mogul courses around the mountain, and the freshest batch is on the famed Outer Limits. Lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Pico Mountain at Killington
Don't forget, your Killington lift pass is also good at Pico Mountain. Combined, the two resorts offer 198 open trails and 81 miles of amazing terrain. Visit picomountain.com for all the details
Ramshead has 3 great parks: Upper Timberline with 15 features including the Mini-Pipe; Lower Timberline, the richly appointed home to Neff Land's 17 features; and Easy Street, where you will find an 8 feature park custom-built for groms and progressing riders. Head to The Beast's sunny south side to find The Stash, a collab with Burton stuffed with 58 unique features, and Dream Maker Park's 23 features.More Details
