Strong season continues at Killington Resort

Nor’Beaster Spring Pass and events line-up announced

KILLINGTON–Killington Resort continues an expectation-shattering winter season with the announcement of 2017’s Nor’Beaster Spring Pass and events line-up. After kicking off the winter season with another first-in-the-East October opening and electrifying Audi FIS Ski World Cup races in November, Killington quickly eclipsed the previous winter’s snowfall totals before proceeding to pick up nearly five feet of natural snowfall in February alone. Killington Resort now charges into spring with a jam-packed events series as the longest ski and ride season in the East extends towards Memorial Day and beyond.
The 2017 Nor’beaster Spring Pass is available for $189 until March 16 ($209 after), providing skiers and snowboarders of all ages with unlimited spring skiing and riding from mid-March to late May or as far as Mother Nature will allow.
The Spring Pass also unlocks access to live music, events and 20 percent discounts on Killington-managed lodging beginning March 17 through the remainder of the 2016-17 winter season.
Spring Pass upgrades are available on-site after March 17 for qualifying pass holders, including those at select partner resorts.
“Spring is special at Killington, not just because of the soft snow and abundant sunshine, but because every weekend of Nor’Beaster is packed with unique events and activations,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort. “We pride ourselves on opening first every fall and staying open later than any other eastern ski area in the spring, and this excellent winter so far has boosted our spring snowmaking and stockpiling efforts. We would love to see the season stretch beyond Memorial Day on Superstar’s World Cup base, and after all, March is historically our snowiest month of the year.”
The much-anticipated Nor’Beaster events series, a celebration of spring in the Green Mountains, begins on April 1 with the Hibernation Park Jam in Bear Mountain’s Dream Maker Park, closing out this winter’s Killington terrain Parks competitions. Following Hibernation are two legendary spring rites of passage: the Dos Equis Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge on April 8 and Pond Skimming on April 15.
On Earth Day, April 22, the Dazed and Defrosted festival brings together live music, on-snow equipment demos, giveaways and a sustainability-themed expo village with activities promoting awareness of Killington’s many environmental initiatives. The ski-bike-run Killington Triathlon on April 29 and May Day Slalom on May 1 round out the events schedule, but spring skiing and riding will continue as long as Mother Nature allows.
Memorial Day weekend at Killington is expected to feature prime late-spring skiing and riding, plus the kickoff of summer operations including the Killington Golf Course, Adventure Center and Mountain Bike Park.
