Killington Snow Report- A Magical Morning
A magical morning for my Day 96 at Killington. Golden sunshine, bluebird sky and corduroy galore. Started at Bear Mountain trails followed by Cruise, Panic, Needles, Bitter, Skyelark, Superstar, Cascade and Escapade.
Words By Killington Resort:
We have a series of bluebird days ahead of us here at The Beast, and with all the recent snowfall, it’s a stunningly beautiful time to ski or ride Killington. With the snow-covered trees contrasting against the deep blue sky, we’ve never looked better. And the skiing and snowboarding are awfully good too.
Packed powder corduroy and soft, natural snow moguls are the dominant terrain types right now, and you’ll find the former on 71 trails freshly groomed this morning. Ovation, Double Dipper, and Outer Limits are great places to hone your bump skills, or duck into glades, like Low Rider and Nowhere, for soft snow on the path less traveled.
Our spring stockpiles of snow are plainly visible as a massive snow spine running the length of Superstar. That’s The Beast’s secret for the longest season in the East.
Don’t miss a powder day or any spring skiing through the end of the 2017-18 season – purchase the Nor’Beaster Spring Pass. At $219, it’s easier on the wallet than two full price day tickets.
After all this wonderful snowfall, the Killington Parks place to be is the Stash woods. Its 40 hits and jibs boost the total count to more than 140 features. We’ve spread those features across six unique parks that cater to everyone from first-time park rider (Lil Stash and Easy Street) to more advanced (Timberline) and even world class (The Stash and Dream Maker). You’ll also find two halfpipes at Killington: the Superpipe at Bear Mountain, which was freshly cut Friday night; and the Minipipe in Timberline Park, freshly cut last night.
Reminder: your Killington lift ticket is also good at Pico Mountain. Located just a short drive west of Killington, Pico offers big mountain skiing and riding with small mountain charm. Combined, the two resorts offer more terrain than you’ll find anywhere else in Eastern North America.
Hours of lift operation are 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Mon-Fri, 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Sat-Sun.
Operating day: 131
