After more than a month delay, Killington Mountain Resort is finally making tickets available for November’s Killington Cup.
The resort announced this week that tickets for the popular World Cup event will go on sale Oct. 19 at 10 a.m. Tickets for the Thanksgiving weekend races were originally intended to go on sale Sept. 9, however Covid safety issues likely had to be addressed before officially planning to hold an event that has attracted as many as 39,000 spectators in the past.
The Audi FIS Ski World Cup will once again bring women’s giant slalom and slalom races to Vermont featuring stars like Mikaela Shiffrin and last season’s overall World Cup winner, Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova.
“Bringing FIS Alpine World Cup racing back to Killington Resort for the 2021/22 Olympic Qualification season is an incredible opportunity for the resort and the surrounding community,” Killington president and general manager Mike Solimano said in a release. “More than just world-class racing and a great music line-up, spectators will enjoy a full weekend of festivities…we’ll utilize every opportunity to build a world-class race venue on Superstar with Killington’s state-of-the-art snowmaking system – positioning us to offer the longest season in the East.”
