Hello Killington Skiers and Riders!

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.

The Top Ski Resorts for the Advanced Skier

September 27, 2009 No comments yet

Killington Top Resort for Advanced SkiersKillington made The Aspen 10‘s list of the top ski resorts for the advanced skier.  They say:

Killington Ski Resort, located in Vermont, is a superb resort for the advanced skier. Almost half the terrain is devoted to difficult trails, including a Double-Black-Diamond rated area known as “The Outer Limits” with enough moguls to make even expert skiers achieve flight. Other terrain includes woodland, or glade, skiing and steep terrain. In all Killington has 12 Double Black Diamond trails and half again as many Black Diamond runs. In all, 200 trails connect seven mountains via 33 chairlifts. Killington has the longest skiing season in the Northeast U.S. (typically November through April), an average annual snowfall of 250 inches, and 70-percent snowmaking capacity. Lessons are available without advance reservation at the Perfect Turn Ski School.

What do you think? Is Killington a top resort for the advanced skier? In our opinion, maybe on the East Coast, but definitely not overall.

Killington Joins Liftopia

Killington Joins LiftopiaTechCrunch is reporting that Liftopia has raised another $1 million in venture capital.

Liftopia provides variable ski resort ticket pricing through its web site. Basically, they allow people to purchase reduced price lift tickets for off-peak days. They allow the resorts to change the price based on how much traffic they anticipate seeing on the slopes.  Rather than just set prices for different time periods, they can actually change their prices on a day-to-day basis.

The good news for all of us is that Killington has signed on this year (Stowe too).  That means there is yet another avenue for us to find discounted lift tickets.

Killington also recently announced their K50 discounted lift tickets.  This deal allows you to buy up to four $50 lift tickets with some blackout days. Better hurry on this one though as the offer expires on October 15.
