The Northeast saw near-record temps last week, forcing “The Beast” to delay it’s opening. Killington originally hoped to open on 11/14/20.
Here’s Killington’s official statement:
“Originally slated for Saturday, November 14 (weather and terrain permitting), Opening Day will be pushed back. With warmer than average temperatures, our snowmakers had to take a hiatus. At this time, it’s hard to anticipate when Opening Day will be because unlike past years, we need top-to-bottom terrain with access to multiple base lifts before we can spin lifts for snowcially distanced skiing and riding. The team is monitoring the extended forecast with plans to make snow whenever temps allow.”
Here’s the forecast for Killington over the next week. Hopefully those snowmakers are able to build up some snow whales at night…
Are you planning on skiing Killington on opening day (whenever that is)? Make sure to read Vermont’s COVID-19 Travel Policy for out-of-state visitors:
“Travelers arriving to Vermont in a personal vehicle must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in their home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.”
Killington will only offer skiing to season pass and/or IKON Pass holders to start the season. They are also requiring parking reservations.
