The Beast is getting bigger.
Leave it to Killington Mountain Resort to head into the 2022-23 skiing and riding season on a big note. As the resort hopes temperatures, eventually, dip to more-friendly snowmaking levels in preparation for the World Cup at the end of the month, it is also putting the finishing touches on its new K-1 base lodge, which should double the capacity of the old one.
The new lodge should transform the base at the self-proclaimed “Beast of the East,” turning one of New England’s top skiing and riding destinations into a base package which the resort has been preparing for years.
On this edition of New England Ski Journal’s Basecamp podcast, Killington president and general manager Mike Solimano joined hosts Eric Wilbur and Mike Specian, to preview the Killington Cup, the resort’s recent building developments, and shares his favorite trails to tackle when the snow finally does start falling.
