3:58 pm 12/07/13--Big fluffy snowflakes fell from the sky most of the day Saturday and, with temperatures dipping into the single digits, you can bet that Killington snowmakers are going to keep the snowflakes falling Saturday night.
Ski and ride 41 trails served by 11 lifts on Sunday. We'll groom 35 of those 41 trails and dress up a handful more in freshly made snow. Look for the guns to keep pounding Cascade, middle Superstar, and upper East Fall with snow throughout the day on Sunday. Spot guns will also run at various locations across the mountain, improving depth and quality in high traffic areas. With partly sunny skies and seasonable temps in the forecast, it should be a great day to channel your inner Beast. Lifts will spin from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Sunday, for one day only, the Rails 2 Riches venue on lower Highline will be open to the public. This is your chance to ride the features that crowned the 2013 Rails 2 Riches champion. Dont miss it. The Mouse Run park is also open, with 21 fantastic features of its own.
The Highline and Reason trails will be closed for race training on Sunday. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
K-1, Snowshed, and Ramshead Base Lodges will be open this weekend 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. Daycare service will be available at Ramshead.
With cooler temperatures returning, snowmakers will be back on the job starting Friday and continuing through the weekend. Guns have been repositioned to build depth on open terrain, as well as to continue expansion toward Needles Eye and Bear Mountain. Lower Superstar, Needles Eye, and Great Eastern are the next likely targets.
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.
