Killington ski resort in Vermont opened for the season yesterday after receiving 5.5″ of snow last weekend.
Killington was the 2nd ski resort to open in North America this year.
This video shows us that yesterday’s opening day was a good time.
Yesterday was just for season pass holders and express pass holders.
Today and everyday for the rest of the season will be open to the public.
KILLINGTON CONDITIONS REPORT for TODAY:
Wednesday, October 26, 2016
9:00 am 10/26/16–The longest season in the East is underway!
The season kicked off yesterday with our annual Season Pass and Express Card holder appreciation day and today, October 26, we will open to the public at 9:00 a.m.
We 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 will kick off the parks season today as well, opening their early season Reason Terrain Park with 6 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.
