Free admission to alpine ski racing and live music when Audi FIS Ski World Cup comes to Vermont, Nov. 26-27
KILLINGTON—Killington Resort announced Sept. 21 that the rock band O.A.R. will headline a robust music and entertainment lineup when the Audi FIS Ski World Cup comes to Killington, Vermont’s largest ski area, on Nov. 26-27, with a free concert following Saturday’s races. Admission for the race spectators and concertgoers is free.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary, O.A.R. recently released a new album, “XX,” through Vanguard Records. The album includes a career-spanning collection of O.A.R.’s biggest hits and live shows plus new studio material.  On display during their Killington performance, high energy fan favorites such as “Crazy Game of Poker,” “Two Hands Up,” and “This Town,” are sure to inspire athletes and spectators alike.
“We are thrilled to add O.A.R. to the full weekend of festivities for this November’s World Cup races,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort. “Aside from the performance by O.A.R. on Saturday, multiple movie premiers, unique dining experiences and events like autograph signings and even a Turkey Trot 5k mean there will be something for everyone during an action-packed World Cup weekend at Killington.”
Killington’s Snowshed base lodge will host three separate movie premiers throughout the weekend, including new releases from Matchstick Productions, Teton Gravity Research and Warren Miller Entertainment, showcasing extreme snow sports and thrilling cinematography, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Proceeds from the first two nights will benefit the Pico Ski Club, Killington Mountain School and Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports.
Saturday’s opening parade will also feature hundreds of local youth ski racers carrying participating nations’ flags to kick off the competition.
