Just though you guys should know...
Sunday River is OPEN!
Saturday, October 23, 2010
All of us here at Killington Resort are very excited to get skiers and riders out on the mountain as soon as possible! Our preparations are well underway for opening as early as possible, and we are well prepared and ready to open as soon as weather and snow conditions permit!
Today at Sunday River
You got your tickets yet? To what?! To the gun show, of course! That’s right. We had 74 guns a-blazin’ last night and today—19 hours in total--and we are open! First in the East? Bah. First in the country!
As you know, we tested the system earlier this month and now Mother Nature finally gave us some weather we can appreciate. Sunday River’s crack snowmaking crew went above and beyond, cranking out enough snow smother T2 in that white and happy goodness we’ve all been waiting for. They don't call it the most dependable snow in New England for nothing.
If you're within striking distance, get up, get on up! The Locke Mountain Triple came back to life today for the first day of the season, and will be spinning at 8am Saturday morning for skiing and riding on T2 from the midstation until the last chair loads at 3:30pm. Open terrain will be for advanced skiers and riders only, and it's early in the season, everybody, so as excited as we all are, remember you're going to encounter some natural obstacles. Tickets will be $25, available at Barker Mountain Lodge.
Hello Killington Skiers and Riders!
Ski Season is finally here! Thanks to the hard work of our mountain operations team and dedicated crew of snowmaking professionals, we’re kicking off the 2010-11 ski and snowboard season tomorrow, Tuesday 11/2 at 10 a.m.
We’ll offer skiing and riding on four trails served by the North Ridge Triple chair with upload/download access served by the K-1 Gondola. We’ll debut the new Peak Walkway, requiring a 5-10 minute walk from the top of the North Ridge Triple back to the top of the K-1 Gondola.
Open terrain will include more difficult and most difficult terrain only and snowmaking will continue on Upper Double Dipper and Upper East Fall throughout the day. No beginner terrain will be available and early season conditions exist.The Peak Restaurant will be open for lunch and the K-1 Lodge will be open for ticket sales, guest service, retail and restrooms. The early season terrain park on Reason will also open Tuesday.
Snowmaking crews will continue to take advantage of cold temperatures and focus on expanding terrain as conditions permit. Beginning Wednesday, Killington Resort will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week until Saturday, Nov. 27, when Killington will offer 8 a.m. openings of select lifts on weekends and peak days.
See you on the slopes!
