Killington Opens Sunday

Killington Opens Sunday

Due to a cold front that brought freezing temperatures perfect for snowmaking as well as snow across some parts of the east coast, Killington will open early, this Sunday. The ski area will commence operations at 10 a.m. with at least six trails served by two lifts off Killington Peak.

The early opening, with what promises to be the most terrain in North America, was made possible by the most extensive snowmaking system in the world. The resort started snowmaking operations on October 29th. The mountain expects to have intermediate and expert terrain on offer for opening day, served by The K-1 Express Gondola and the Northridge Triple will operate on Sunday. The mountain will also open an early season Terrain Park on Reason.

“Our snowmaking crew has taken advantage of the premium weather conditions and nearly tripled the 12 inches of natural snow at the peak,” says Killington’s Patricia Ryan. “Over the next 36 hours, snowmaking operations will continue and snowcats will begin working the snow surface to provide our guests the best possible opening day conditions.”

Opening day lift tickets are $65 for Adults (19-64); $52 for Young Adult (13-18) and $52 Senior (65-69); and $46 for Junior (6-12) and Super Senior (70+). Early-season Ski and Stay Packages start at just $87 per person, per night and are available by calling 800-621-MTNS. Lift hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, November 2nd; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends and holidays.

Killington hosts its first event of the season, Rails2Riches, a $15,000 rail jam on Saturday, Dec 6 for skiers and snowboarders. The competition is held under the lights with a blazing bonfire and a killer after-party.
