Ski for free at Killington’s closing weekend

Comments by Donny O'Neill/

East Coasters looking to keep the stoke alive for one more weekend can head to Killington and ski for free! Warm weather and precipitation are forcing the resort to close after Sunday, but there’s still plenty of spring skiing to be done at the Beast.

From Killington’s Conditions Report:

1:32 p.m. 5/23/13–Given the intensity of the rain we received last night and the forecast of significant rain starting tonight through the day on Saturday, our operational plans have changed since last night’s communication. This weekend (May 25th & May 26th), we will be offering FREE skiing and riding for all at Killington! Walking between snowfields will be required in several spots.   Ma Nature is charging into summer and has other things in mind for us other than skiing, like golf and Mt Biking? To push any remaining snow to make connecting bridges would only hasten the melt process.  Please note we are now going to operate Saturday and Sunday only, from 8-5, on the Superstar lift and trail.

We gave it our best shot to get into June, thus at the end of business on Sunday we are calling it a season. We thank all for your patronage and support this year. Don’t forget to buy your season passes for next year’s greatest value opportunity by June 13th!

Remember only 130 days until we’re at it again for 2013-14!
