- Seven inches of snow falls overnight, skiers and riders delight
Wed, Jan 1, 2014 02:33 PM
KILLINGTON-Killington Resort received seven inches of new snow
Sunday evening, Dec. 29. The natural snowfall has allowed ski
patrol to open additional trails, bringing the count up to 69 in
total, which translates to 33 miles or 362 acres of skiing and
riding for all ability levels across six peaks.
"Last night's rapidly accumulating snowfall came at a great time
as we are heading into to the New Year's Eve holiday," said Rob
Megnin, director of sales, marketing and reservations for the
resort. "The new snow added to our snowmaking base and with two
additional major winter storm systems heading this way, Killington
is prepared for an outstanding start to 2014."
Killington Resort has received 56 inches of snow so far this
season and is holding an average mid-mountain base depth of 12
inches. Additionally, temperatures are expected to drop, creating
ideal snowmaking conditions throughout this week and allowing for
continued terrain expansion. Guests need not fear the cold though,
as the new Peak Lodge is now open at 4,100' atop Killington Peak,
offering the highest dining in the state.
