It's the most wonderful time of the year, especially at Killington Resort. Our incredible snowmakers have been piling up the snow on trails across four peaks. Which trails? The list keeps growing, but here's a snap shot: Cascade, Superstar, East Fall and Downdraft Headwall. Plus, the guns are firing on easier trails too, on Ramshead Mountain and Snowshed Slope.
We've been celebrating the winter season since November 5, so check out what's on tap for this weekend, pack your car and head up to Killington for a much deserved getaway.
For this weekend, we'll be offering skiing and riding for all ability levels on over 14 miles of open terrain off Killington Peak, Skye Peak, Snowdon Mountain, Ramshead Mountain and Snowshed Slope. Drum roll please, Cascade will debut and Superstar will be open top to bottom! Additionally, the early season terrain park on Mouse Run will be rebuilt, so stop by Friday to check out the new set up.
