1:04 pm 12/09/13--Update: Snowdon Quad and Snowdon Triple chairs are on wind hold.
Well skiers and riders, its Monday again and we've got kind of a Monday forecast for you. Its not all bad; it's snowing right now, but we may see some mixed precipitation through the afternoon. The storm total could be 4-6 inches and if it's white, we'll take it.
For Monday we expect to have 39 trails with 37 of them groomed. Temperatures will get up above freezing for a bit, so it should be quite comfortable. If you like nice soft bumps, check out Superstar and Cascade, both of which have been under the guns for a few days and will escape grooming again Sunday night. We'll leave the guns running right up until about noon, when the temperature will probably force them off. Mountain Ops tells us that the warm-up will be short lived we should be back in snowmaking business by Tuesday morning. 10 lifts are scheduled for Monday and the key ones will spin at 9:00 a.m.
Mouse Run Terrain Park is open with 21 features for your park riding pleasure.
Bunny Buster will be closed for race training on Monday and we thank you in advance for your understanding.
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 scheduled to operate at both base areas as well.
With just a minor warm-up on Monday, the weather for the week looks great for continued snowmaking and terrain expansion. Snowmakers have already been busy setting up guns for the next objectives on the march toward the Needles Eye and Bear Mountain areas.
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.
