4:42 pm 03/07/14--You can trade the puffy layers for sunscreen skiers and riders; it's a heat wave at The Beast. Partly sunny skies will nudge the temperature all the way into the low 30s Saturday, so make your way to Killington for a great weekend of skiing and riding.
Killington's groomers will roll out fresh corduroy on 86 trails for your carving contentment. Among the fresh groomed trails will be a selection of The Beast's signature steeps, trails like Ovation, Double Dipper, and Downdraft. Warm days mean soft snow and soft snow means moguls; you'll find them here on 4 seeded mogul venues: Lower Superstar, Outer Limits, Mouse Trap, and Vertigo. Many gladed trails are open around the mountain, including the legendary Julio. Free family fun is available at the Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge, held on Snowshed Slope. Registration starts at 8:00 a.m. in the Snowshed Lodge. 21 lifts are scheduled and hours of lift operation are from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
