The Beast of the East is officially open for the 2016-2017 season! Here's the latest update according to Killington's website.
The season kicked off yesterday with the annual Season Pass and Express Card holder appreciation day and today, October 26, Killington will open to the public at 9:00 a.m. EST
Plan to ski and ride Wednesday on two runs in the North Ridge area, Rime and Reason, each freshly groomed for first chair.
The Killington Parks crew kicked off their season today as well, opening the early-season Reason Terrain Park with 8 features.
Looking ahead, favorable snowmaking conditions should stick around for a few days. In order to maximize base depth during this weather window, snowmaking will continue during operating hours on open terrain, please use caution.
Access from K-1 Base Area will be via the K-1 Express Gondola, which will upload from opening until 3:00 p.m. and download until 4:00 p.m. The North Ridge Triple will allow uploading until 3:45 p.m. Skiers and snowboarders will use the Peak Walkway to access open terrain and return to the K-1 Express Gondola for the trip down to the base area when finished for the day.
Early season conditions will exist, and snowmaking and other on-mountain operations may be in progress throughout the day on open terrain. Skiing and snowboarding will be on advanced terrain only; no easier terrain will be available at this time.
