Slash and Berm slalom to benefit Molly’s Fund

KILLINGTON — Being held over the weekend of Feb. 27 – 28, Killington’s Slash and Berm is a two-day benefit banked slalom event held at Killington’s Stash Park to bring the East Coast snowboarding community together.

Snowboarders will gather at Killington’s “The Stash” terrain park to take advantage of the natural terrain and all the creative elements the mountain has to offer for a great cause.
