UPDATED 10-26-16: With long-term sights set on the longest season in the East, and short-term sights on the AudI FIS World Cup, Killington kicked off the 2016-17 season in the Northeast for season pass holders on Tuesday, Oct. 26.


 

Following a storm Sunday morning that brought snow to higher elevation peaks across the Northeast, Killington added to the five-plus inches of natural snow with snowmaking both on North Ridge ski trails Rime and Reason for public use, and Superstar trail, where the Audi FIS World Cup will take place November 26-27.

The first turns of the season were dedicated exclusively to Season Pass and Express Card holders, and the resort opened to the general public on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 9:00 a.m.


“With the World Cup coming up next month, we have been anxiously waiting for cold temperatures here at Killington, and now that we have a favorable window of snowmaking weather, our mountain operations team is running full steam ahead to make sure we’re once again the first ski area in the East to open for the season while also beginning production on the Superstar World Cup race course,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “After last season we are not taking anything for granted and will continue to make snow at every possible opportunity, at every elevation with the necessary temperature and humidity conditions.”
