The warm air that moved into the Killington basin midweek is on its way out. Temperatures fell below freezing overnight, and by this afternoon we could see single digit temperatures. That’s good news for Killington snowmakers, back in action for a quick round of resurfacing on signature trails like Superstar, Outer Limits and Skyelark. Future snowmaking expansion projects include Dream Maker Park, Superpipe, and Double Dipper.
Although we skipped the first shift grooming to avoid moving wet snow around, the groomers did take to the hill around midnight, after temperatures had fallen. The late start still allowed time to coat 58 trails in fresh corduroy.
NeffLand Terrain Park, on Lower Timberline, opened Wednesday and its 23 outer-space themed features boosted our total count to 5 parks and 86 features, the most in the East. By the weekend we expect to have The Stash open too, and Dream Maker will follow close behind. Groms and those new to park riding should head for our progression parks, Easy Street and the Lil’ Stash, both on Ramshead.
Remember, your Killington ticket or pass is always valid at Pico Mountain, located just a short drive to our west. With more than 140 open trails between the two resorts, all accessible on one ticket, Killington offers the most variety in Eastern North America.
