7:33 am 04/17/14--The Beast was blanketed with fresh fluff for Wednesday, and sunshine, warmer temps and a killer grooming team have worked in our favor since then. For Thursday we are kicking off the day by offering skiing and riding on 33 freshly groomed trails served by the K-1 Express Gondola, Superstar Express Quad, and Snowshed Express Quad.

Beginner terrain in the form of Great Northern will be available from Killington Peak, as will steeper slopes including Cascade, FIS and East Fall. From Skye Peak, all of Skye Lark, Superstar and Bittersweet will be coated in corduroy, as will middle Ovation. Please note there is no beginner terrain access via Superstar Express.

Today is the final day for Snowshed Slope this season, and the Killington Snow Sports School is no longer accepting new reservations for lessons. All scheduled lessons will still be taught. Snowshed Slope and Superstar are connected via Highlander.

The Superstar Express Quad is scheduled to operate from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and all other lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Late season spring conditions exist. Ski and ride responsibly.
