The first turns of the season, on Sunday, November 3, were reserved exclusively for Season Pass, Express Card, Beast 365 and Ikon pass holders. The resort will open to the general public today Monday, November 4, 2019, at 9:00 am.
“There’s a lot to celebrate this year opening weekend at Killington,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “On top of all the improvements we made last year to elevate the guest experience, our pass holders will have the opportunity to be the first guests to experience the brand new North Ridge Quad. We’re also excited to show off the progress we’ve made on phase 1 of the new K-1 Lodge.”
Early season conditions exist and snowmaking and other on-mountain operations may be in progress throughout the day on open terrain.
New for the 2019-20 season, the Woodward Mountain Park at Killington is a network of featured terrain zones that, together, offer a balanced variety of exciting on-mountain experiences for all ages and abilities. On Monday, when open to the general public, Killington’s first Woodward Mountain Park zone – a temporary pop up park in the North Ridge area on Reason – will make its debut. The early season rail garden is the first terrain park to open in the east each season. As the season continues and conditions permit, the Woodward Mountain Park network of zones will expand.
Killington will remain open to the public for skiing and snowboarding as conditions permit and will host the Audi FIS Ski World Cup November 30 – December 1.
