In what is a sure sign of the coming ski season, season passes for the Pickle Barrel nightclub go on sale next week, according to an email sent to their mailing list. More details will be announced next week.
If you’re not familiar with the “Pickle Pass,” let us tell you that it is a great deal for any frequent visitors to Killington. For around $120 (they offered a special sale for $80 that ended on May 2), the pass allows you free admission and a special VIP entrance into the Pickle Barrel for all but special events throughout the season. Plus, you can bring a friend in for free with you on any night but Saturday. You also get free admission to JAX Food & Games bar next door. With cover charges of $18+ on peak weekends and lines of over an hour in the cold, it pays for itself in no time.
The Pickle Barrel also opens for Brew Fest this weekend for the first time since last season. This Saturday, October 3, they are featuring Kick which they bill as the “ultimate rock show.” Saturday, October 10, they have The Degenerates and Saturday, October 17, they have Pepper. You can find out more details on their web site.
