Warm Snap Ends Killington Ski Season Earlier Than Projected

By

This week, Killington’s Superstar Glaciar gave way to the warm Spring temperatures in Vermont. After significant melting, Killington announced that they won’t have any lift-serviced terrain open for this upcoming weekend. The original plan was to spin the lifts one more time on Saturday(May 22), but grass patches made hiking mandatory at the top, at some of the middle portions, and near the bottom of Superstar. Their last day of operation this season was on Sunday, May 16th. Some portions of the trail will definitely be skiable through earning your turns and hiking it. Killington’s explanation of the decision is below…

Regardless of a shorter season than usual, Killington made it memorable as they always do. Killington opened later than is typical of them on November 20’th due to warm weather and frequent rain, along with attempting to mitigate early season crowds due to Covid. Plentiful snowfall in January and February made for some of the best conditions on the East Coast in years. The snow melted rapidly on the East Coast this March though, as there really was no new snow outside of some mid-April snowstorms. For summer operations, Killington will reopen its mountain biking trails and golf course for Memorial Day Weekend, and its Adventure Center will open on July 1’st. Here are some photos of some late spring skiing at The Beast from this year.
