Killington Resort Announces Final Weekend of Skiing and Riding
Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest mountain resort in Eastern North America, will wrap up the 2018-19 ski and snowboard season on Sunday, June 2 - making it the longest ski and snowboard season in Eastern North America. The last time Killington offered lift-serviced skiing in June was 2017 and in 2002 prior to that.
The Superstar Express Quad will spin 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Friday, May 31 and 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2. Lift tickets will be $30* for all ages each day. Complimentary commemorative t-shirts will be available to the first 500 guests to load Superstar Express on Sunday, and the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar will feature live music, free Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream for about 500 people starting at 3:00 p.m., an outdoor grill and views of the ski and snowboard action all day.
“When lift operations conclude on Sunday, we will have offered 211 days of skiing and riding here at Killington,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington. “I’m thankful to the entire Killington team for providing such an outstanding season to our dedicated season pass holders and guests. We can’t wait to see everyone for one last weekend of skiing and tailgating, and look forward to serving up an adventure-filled summer.”
The Killington snowmaking team began making snow on the Superstar trail on October 16 in preparation of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup and continued stockpiling snow right through March using its industry-leading snowmaking technology and experience. Snow depths were in excess of 30 feet on most of the trail once snowmaking efforts concluded and Killington’s world-class grooming team has worked to preserve that snow since.
Killington groomers plan to patch up any bare spots that come through with this week’s rain with a goal of providing continuous top to bottom skiing and riding throughout the weekend although some walking may be required as the weekend progresses.
