5:00 pm 04/20/14--180 days of uninterrupted skiing and riding have come and gone here in Killington but there are plenty of spectacular spring turns still to be made. Make some on Monday - the forecast couldn't be much better with temps in the mid-40s to mid-50s and mostly sunny skies.

K-1 Express Gondola operation has been extended to take advantage of all the great snow covered terrain still to be found at Killington. With 2 lifts turning midweek and 47 open trails, The Beast is the King of Spring. If your spring thing is big soft bumps you'll want to check out the seeded mogul zone on Mouse Trap. If smoother is more your style we've also got 26 freshly groomed trails, including steep favorites like Cascade, Superstar, and East Fall.

The Superstar Express Quad is scheduled to operate from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and the K-1 Gondola will operate from 9:00-4:00.

Beginner terrain is available on Great Northern, which can be accessed from the K-1 Gondola. This is the only top-to-bottom beginner trail available at this time. The Superstar Express Quad serves only intermediate and advanced terrain.

Late season spring conditions exist. Ski and ride responsibly.
