Memorial Day Fun At Killington Resort
Skiing, Golf, and Biking In The Same Weekend!
Are you skiing Killington Resort this Memorial Day weekend? Well, a couple of us did first thing Friday morning and the snow was continuous top to bottom. You do need to carry your skis/snowboard on and off the lift though but once you get over the headwall there is still a lot of snow to be had. The weather being so hot and humid (in the 80’s) the next few days will be a big factor on long we can ski/ride. We’ve got some jam packed goodies in store for you.
Here’s Why Memorial Day Fun At Killington Resort Will Be Epic
It’s called the Beast of A Bike Swap and it conveniently coincides with the opening of Killington’s Mountain Bike Park. Like Killington’s winter Ski Swaps the Bike Swap is expected to be big, real big. We’ll talk about the Beastly Bike Swap more in a bit, but let’s not forget the other events going on too. More Events?! That’s right more, more, more!
The Killington Stage Race is something that’s been happening in Killington for years. Pro’s from all over the country, even the world come to our little mountain town to test their endurance on our rugged roads. The stage race runs 3 days, with two days being long road days with one monster climb up east mountain road and a time trial. The cool part is the race for Saturday ends up by Snowshed, where road cyclist (if they wanted to) could hop on the mountain bike and take a few laps on the mountain bike trails.
So we’ve got skiing, Road bike races, golf, biking and killer deals. Seems like a jam packed weekend that’s not worth missing. You should probably be rethinking those weekend plans right about now.
Beast Of A Bike Swap
Think ski swap but with bikes and way more stoke. Think free demos, food, drinks and high fives. If you’ve never immersed yourself in the bike community now would be the time. We can often be a rowdy bunch but we’re all family and all share the same love for the sport whether it be road biking or mountain biking.
And there will be plenty of bikes. Whether you’re looking for something new, something used or something different there will be something for everyone. We’ve got plenty of hardtail mountain bikes, full suspension mountain bikes, downhill bikes, road bikes and lifestyle/ hybrid bikes.
The best part by far is the free swag we’ll be giving away. Stickers, Water bottles, Gift Certificates and much much more! Hours of the swap are Friday the 27th from 4-8PM though you can drop of your consignment bike sooner. Then we’ll be rocking the lodge all day Saturday from 9-7 but you can also catch us out on the hill just look for our True Wheels Jerseys. If you saw something you liked but didn’t buy it you have until 2pm Sunday to change your mind. We’ll be back Sunday from 9-2 selling off the last of our bikes.
We’ll have the knowledge to back up our product, comfy chairs and wicked sweet high fives so you better stop by, because why not? Lifts spin Sat, Sun and Monday for Memorial Day from 10:00-4:30 and there is a lot of excited people ready to ride. We’re stoked to see this happen and hopefully will see you there.
We’re Ready To Shred, Are you?
