It might have taken a little longer than usual, but ski season is indeed upon us.
Killington Mountain Resort announced Tuesday that it would open for skiing and riding on Nov. 17 with a passholder appreciation day beginning at noon. The resort will open to the general public the following morning at 9 a.m.
“Day One will look and feel similar to years past: skiers and riders will upload the K-1 Gondola, use the Peak Walkway to get to and from the North Ridge Quad, with early season conditions on Rime and Reason,” Killington’s snow report read Tuesday afternoon. “Open terrain will be suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers and riders only; no beginner terrain will be available.”
Also on the agenda at Killington Wednesday is the snow control approval, when the International Skiing Federation (FIS) will give the Superstar trail the yay or nay for the World Cup event scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend.
