Weekend of alpine ski racing and live music to take place Thanksgiving weekend, November 27 & 28; Tickets are available by visiting www.killington.com/worldcup  

Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard destination in Eastern North America and part of POWDR, announced the entertainment lineup for the 2021 HomeLight Killington Cup. Taking place November 27 and November 28, the return of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup will bring the fastest women’s technical alpine skiers in the world together with music, events, camaraderie, and more ahead of the 2022 Winter Olympics. Tickets to the HomeLight Killington Cup are available at www.killington.com/worldcup.

Killington will host free concerts on the Bud Light Seltzer stage throughout the weekend featuring O.A.R., DJ Z-Trip, and G Love. O.A.R., who previously headlined the 2016 World Cup, will headline Saturday’s event. Hailing from Rockville, Maryland, O.A.R. has spent more than 25 years touring together, selling out New York City’s Madison Square Garden twice and Red Rocks Amphitheater a dozen times. The group’s three most recent albums debuted in the Top 15 on the Billboard Top 200 list. DJ Z-Trip, based out of Phoenix, Arizona, is known around the globe for his unique style and has collaborated with some of the industry greats like Bassnectar, Rakim, and many others. He has played at some of the biggest music festivals in the world, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, SXSW, and more. 

“The entertainment in this year’s World Cup is sure to create some serious excitement as we watch some of the top skiers in the world here at Killington. Although we are not able to kick-off the weekend with an athlete bib presentation and fireworks due to limited access to athletes due to Covid protocols, the energy surrounding the weekend is truly unmatched anywhere on the race circuit.”

The full weekend schedule is available at killington.com/worldcup. 

The 2021 HomeLight Killington Cup is a fully ticketed event, a change from prior years’ events. All attendees will need either a General Admission ticket, Grandstand ticket, or VIP ticket to enter the Festival Village, concerts, and spectating areas. General Admission tickets are available online in advance for $5.00, with all proceeds benefitting the Killington World Cup Foundation, which supports athlete hospitality and provides grants to support winter sports infrastructure and access to winter sports throughout the region. A limited number of Grandstand tickets are still available for purchase, providing an unparalleled location to view the giant slalom and slalom races. 

Killington’s priority is to protect the well-being of spectators, athletes, and staff for the duration of the HomeLight Killington Cup. Actions being taken to prioritize the wellbeing of the community include ticketing the entire event—including General Admission—to control attendance and requiring proof of vaccine or a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours prior to the event from spectators.
