Two new events announced at Killington for upcoming year

KILLINGTON - Killington Resort is excited to announce two recent additions to the 2013-2014 schedule of events.

Mini Shred Maddness will be held Saturdays Jan. 18 at Killington and Feb. 1 at Pico. This day is designed to be park tournament focused on creating a fun experience for first-timers or those looking to try new tricks in a not-too-competitive environment. There will be two divisions, Super Grom for those age 9 and under and Grom for age 10-13.

Sponsorships are pending, but Never Summer snowboards and long boards based in Denver, CO are very interested in backing the mini-shedders, said Jeff Alexander, events and sponsorships manager at Killington.

Skiers and riders can also look forward to more family-friendly events at Pico this year, said Alexander. "Perhaps scavenger hunts and adult-child combo events?" he hints.

Also announced, The Biggest Looser will return in 2014! The date has been set for July 27, 2014.

Look for a full schedule of events to be released in about two week.
