100 days for 81 years

Killington—Monday, Feb. 27, marked a very special day for Paul Giblin at Killington Resort. A Killington enthusiast for over 30 years and second home owner who didn’t start skiing until age 40 at Gray Rocks Canadian Ski Resort,  Paul celebrated his 81st birthday skiing with his wife, Teresa, and friends on a sunny, bluebird day at Killington. An avid skier whose favorite trail is Royal Flush, he set a personal goal and embarked on a quest in October 2016 to ski over 100 days at Killington in a single season. Flushed with determination, perseverance, and true grit, his spirit and enthusiasm never waivered. Paul kick started his journey by climbing, round trip, the stairway from North Ridge to the Peak over twenty days!

The Killington 100 Club is delighted to announce that on his birthday on Feb. 27, Paul was victorious. He was inducted into the 100 Ski Club with a celebration at Bear Mountain with Killington’s Randy McGuiness and lift attendant Sofia Reyes administering the historic 100 Day scan.

Then, after a great morning on the slopes, a dual birthday and 100 Day Club celebration was held at the Peak Restaurant. Paul was joined by his wife Teresa, friends Donna Bowie, Russ Wolf, Killington Peak team members, Rocky, Tom, Cat, and April, plus over a dozen enthusiastic guests singing “Happy Birthday” to Paul and cheering his significant personal skiing achievement.
