Be Part Of History In The Making At Killington World Cup
The biggest party in the Northeast ski world is coming up Nov. 23-25, with the Killington World Cup bringing the best women’s technical alpine skiers in the world together with big name live music, movie screenings and the raucous Killington crowd that loves to celebrate all things winter.
100 athletes representing 21 countries are expected to participate in the slalom and giant slalom events on Killington’s Superstar trail, as thousands of cheering fans bring energy and excitement to the Killington Cup.
The fun doesn't stop with the races, though; The Killington Cup weekend, free and open to the public, features live music, an athlete bib presentation, autograph signing, fireworks and more.
The action starts Friday at the Festival Village all day. Pack your Sharpie to get autographs in the afternoon. See the top 15 racers at the athlete bib presentation at 5:45 p.m., followed by a Paul Oakenfold performance, fireworks, and Teton Gravity Research’s “Far Out” movie.
The opening parade on Saturday celebrates Vermont’s rich racing history and bright future, featuring Vermont youth ski racers. The first run of the giant slalom races start at 9:45 a.m., with KT Tunstall performing immediately following. The top 30 racers advance to the second run, followed by awards and live music from Michael Franti. The après party happens at the Pickle Barrel Night Club, and the evening movie is Warren Miller Entertainment’s “Face of Winter.”
Sunday’s opening parade features New England youth ski racers. The fast and technical slalom races start at 10 a.m, with Guster performing between runs.
We’ll be cheering every racer as she comes down Killington’s legendary Superstar trail, but especially Mikaela Shffrin (Avon, Colo.), who took top honors at last week’s World Cup slalom in Levi, Finland. Don’t forget your cowbell.
While the ski races and concerts are free and open to the public, a limited number of tickets for premium viewing areas for the giant slalom and slalom races and preferred parking are still available for purchase. Or go in style with VIP ticket packages, in partnership with the Killington World Cup Committee, which provides grants to support winter sports infrastructure and access to winter sports throughout the region.
