10:47 pm 03/10/14--If you love fresh powder as much as The Beast does, you probably already know that there is a storm headed this way. Snow total predictions are all over the map but it seems like Wednesday through Thursday morning is the time-frame. We're hoping this is the first big dump of March, and you know we'll keep you posted.
In the meantime, there's a whole lot of great skiing and riding to be had at Killington; 64 miles of it, in fact. We expect some light snow to fall overnight, softening surfaces for Tuesday. 78 trails will feature fresh groomed corduroy, perfect for early morning carving sessions. Outer Limits, one of The Beast's most challenging trails, will be among those groomed and Downdraft Headwall is also scheduled for a rare bout with the groomers. Gladed trails are open across the mountain and range from the gentle Treezy on Ramshead to the experts-only, and aptly named, Anarchy. As always, Gentle cruisers are available from the summit of each mountain area so check out Great Northern, Great Eastern, or Bear Trax to Bear Cub for an easy way down. Lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
The K Parks crew is hard at work preparing the Stash for next week's Slash and Berm, but don't worry, you can still ride 59 features including 27 that are literally stashed in the trees. Next door on Dream Maker you can find 23 features including a jump line. Ramshead is home to 3 parks: Neff Land with 18 features; Timberline with 15 features and the mini pipe; and the Easy Street Progression Park with 8 features.More Details
Base Lodge Update
Skyeship and Ramshead Base Lodges will not offer food, beverage, or bar service Monday through Thursday. Snowshed, K-1, and Bear Mountain Base Lodges offer full service every day, as does the Peak Lodge at the summit of the K-1 Express Gondola.
Needles Eye and Highline will be closed from 9:00-12:00. We thank you for your understanding.
