2:20 pm 12/12/13--Well, skiers and riders, the big five-oh doesn't just roll around every day, and Thursday is it! We'll be celebrating 50 days on snow this season with more snowmaking, more snowmaking and some more snowmaking. Maybe - no, definitely - some grooming, too.
We're thinking 35 trails' worth of sweet corduroy with a side of natural bumps on Cascade and Superstar. Plus the snowguns are turned toward Lower Superstar, Panic Button, Needle's Eye and High Road in pursuit of new weekend-ready terrain. The Ops team will toss on new snow for Lower Cruise Control, too, just because. Expect 21 features AND fresh snowmaking in the Mouse Run Terrain Park.
Low temps mean snowmaking but also, well, it's cold. Bring your layers and keep it cozy.
Pico Mountain at Killington
Access even more terrain with just one lift ticket this weekend as we open top to bottom skiing and riding at Pico Mountain! We're making snow and getting stoked; check back Thursday for more details.
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 at both base areas as well.
The weather for the week will be cold, so snowmaking and terrain expansion will charge ahead. Ski hard. Stay warm.
