Killington Vermont Will OPEN Friday, October 19th!

The Beast of the East will officially kick off the 2018/19 East Coast ski season this Friday! The Friday opening will be for Season Pass and Express Card holders only. The ski area will open to the general public on Saturday, October 20th.

From The Resort:

Tomorrow’s Winter starts when The Beast says so and we say it starts Friday! Our heroic snowmaking team has been working hard in the North Ridge area, and we’re pleased to announce that the first turns in Eastern North America will be made by our Season Pass and Express Card holders on Friday, October 19.

The K-1 Express Gondola will begin loading at 10:00 a.m. with the last ride up available at 3:00 p.m. Skiers and riders will walk down the Peak Walkway to access open terrain in the North Ridge Area before heading back up the Peak Walkway to download the K-1 Express Gondola. The last run down Rime will be at 3:30 p.m.

The Snowshed Sales Center will be open for RFID ONE PASS pick up Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.; Friday 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.; Saturday 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.; or Sunday 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. K-1 Guest Services will be open 7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Friday-Sunday but due to limited processing stations we recommend ONE PASSES be picked up at Snowshed.

Season Pass and Express Card holders will be treated to a free lunch at either the K-1 Lodge, Peak Lodge or Dog Sled on Friday. Additionally, pass holders will be treated to a complimentary opening day gift while supplies last.

Additional Details:

  • No lift tickets or scenic gondola ride tickets are being sold, and no vouchers may be redeemed on Friday. We will open to the general public on Saturday, October 20.
  • Open terrain is for intermediate and above level skiers and riders only. No beginner terrain is available, and snowmaking will take place as temperatures permit.
