Killington Resort, VT, has announced that they will be closing this upcoming weekend, their last day of operations hopefully being Saturday, May 22nd, 2021.
The “goods” are going fast! Our Superstar snow harvest is melting, and the forecast doesn’t look favorable for skiing and riding. BUT, that being said, we want to spin the lift one more time this season if we can!
So, the tentative plan is to operate this Saturday, May 22, only (no Friday or Sunday operations) for the final day of the 2020/21 winter season at Killington. On Thursday, we’ll reassess conditions and make the call for Saturday operations. If you subscribe to The Drift, you’ll get the update delivered right to your email, otherwise, check back here Thursday late afternoon.
The ‘Beast of the East’ is the only eastern ski area still operating, but unfortunately what snow there is is melting fast, and there is no more in the immediate forecast.
Killington boasts the longest season in the east, usually opening early November through May and into June, conditions permitting. This season they have had 217″ of snowfall and currently have a 15″ base.
