3:20 pm 12/06/13--There's good news, skiers and riders; winter is returning to Killington. Cooling temps mean that we will soon be back to making snowstorms, and the forecast is calling for several inches of natural snow overnight. In the meantime, the cooler weather is bringing with it some variable conditions. Expect our trail count to fluctuate a bit as we manage this transition. As always, the most up-to-the-minute lift and trail information is right here at Killington.com.
Upper Bunny Buster and Highline will be closed for race training; thanks in advance for your understanding. Work will continue on the Rails 2 Riches venue at the bottom of Highline, so check that out.
Speaking of Rails 2 Riches; be sure to stick around Saturday afternoon for the East Coast's premiere rail jam. Held at the bottom of Highline, Rails 2 Riches features a roster of professional and amateur skiers and snowboarders vying for a $25,000 purse.
K-1, Snowshed, and Ramshead Base Lodges will be open this weekend 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. Daycare service will be available at Ramshead.
With cooler temperatures returning, snowmakers will be back on the job Friday morning and through the weekend. Guns have been repositioned to build depth on open terrain, as well as to continue expansion toward Needles Eye and Bear Mountain. Lower Superstar and Great Eastern are the next likely targets.
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.
