It’s official – New England’s ski season is here! Killington became the first Eastern resort to kick off the 2017-18 ski season, opening exclusively for Season pass and Express Card holders on Wednesday, November 8.
The resort will be open to the general public daily beginning Thursday, November 9 at 9:00 am.
“The cold temperatures and ideal snowmaking weather have had our mountain operations team running full steam ahead to make Killington, once again, the first ski area in the East to open, and get the resort ready for the World Cup races in just a few weeks,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain.
Beginning Thursday, November 9, the K-1 Express Gondola lift hours will be 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (for uphill loading). The North Ridge Triple will allow uploading until 3:45 p.m.
Early season conditions exist and snowmaking and other on-mountain operations may be in progress throughout the day on open terrain. Terrain will also be limited to advanced only (no beginner trails are available at this time), providing roughly 600 vertical feet of open trails.
