Hello Killington Skiers and Riders!
Ski Season is finally here! Thanks to the hard work of our mountain operations team and dedicated crew of snowmaking professionals, we’re kicking off the 2010-11 ski and snowboard season tomorrow, Tuesday 11/2 at 10 a.m.
We’ll offer skiing and riding on four trails served by the North Ridge Triple chair with upload/download access served by the K-1 Gondola. We’ll debut the new Peak Walkway, requiring a 5-10 minute walk from the top of the North Ridge Triple back to the top of the K-1 Gondola.
Open terrain will include more difficult and most difficult terrain only and snowmaking will continue on Upper Double Dipper and Upper East Fall throughout the day. No beginner terrain will be available and early season conditions exist.The Peak Restaurant will be open for lunch and the K-1 Lodge will be open for ticket sales, guest service, retail and restrooms. The early season terrain park on Reason will also open Tuesday.
Snowmaking crews will continue to take advantage of cold temperatures and focus on expanding terrain as conditions permit. Beginning Wednesday, Killington Resort will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week until Saturday, Nov. 27, when Killington will offer 8 a.m. openings of select lifts on weekends and peak days.
See you on the slopes!
