The state of Vermont continues to rebuild after the devastating effects brought by Hurricane Irene. As we reported earlier, many ski resorts were hit hard in the northeast, but none as hard as central Vermont’s Killington.
Recently, Killington officials have stated that they plan to start rebuilding the large section of their base lodge that collapsed due to the strong floodwaters of the storm. It was the Superstar Pub that was once attached to Killington’s K-1 Base Lodge, but the storm waters broke it from its foundation. The old Pub will be replaced with a new deck and bar area called the, “Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar.” This work will begin sometime next month.

Chris Nyberg is the president and general manager for Killington. He shared, “Killington Resort, along with many communities, sustained damage from tropical storm Irene.” “Structures can be replaced, roads can be fixed and we are pleased to offer another place for our guests to grab a light bite to eat and relax slopeside this season with the new Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar.”

The plan is for this new bar to be able to withstand future storms that might impact the area, even those as strong as Hurricane Irene. The bar will also be open year-round.

Nyberg went on to share, “Our crews have successfully dismantled and removed the Superstar Pub and restored Roaring Brook to its original stream bed.” “We will begin to build the deck beside Roaring Brook in the next couple of weeks and we anticipate opening the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar by the end of November.”
