Send Killington Parks out in style

Hibernation kicks off 2017 Nor’Beaster
Saturday, April 1, 9:30 a.m.—KILLINGTON—Another great season with Killington terrain parks is coming to an end. Before they put the metal back in the shop, come lap the parks for one last spring event Saturday, April 1, the Hibernation Park Jam. Soft landings, good vibes, goggle tans and a BBQ are all on the agenda. Come shred with the Beast, take home some prizes and send Killington Parks out in style.
Shred Sessions take place 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in Dream Maker terrain park. Skiers and riders have been hitting Killington parks all season long, and it’s time for a Parks Appreciation Day. Start the morning off with the park crew. They’ll be lapping the park and tossing swag to anyone stomping tricks and having a good time. This event is free and open to the public.
The Hibernation Park Jam will go on 1-3 p.m., also in Dream Maker. Meet in the Fuel TV Lounge on the third floor of Bear Mountain Lodge for lunch for Park Jam competitors only. Then, check out the venue—the park crew will be building a custom rail-garden on the lower deck of the Superpipe, so expect a superb set-up. They’re getting creative with a laid-back format and some sweet prizes, too. Session the venue, impress the judges, and get a place on the podium with great prizes to go with it.
All registration for the Park Jam will take place 9-11 a.m. only. The entry fee for all divisions is $20, which includes lunch. Competitors will be required to have a season pass or lift ticket in order to compete. Discounted lift tickets available. Awards take place at 3:30 p.m. on the third floor of Bear Mountain lodge.
