Killington welcomes mountain biking “divas”

Vermont’s Killington Resort, a four season destination and home of the Killington Bike Park, announces the return of Killington Divas of Dirt, an initiative led by Pro Downhill/Enduro Racer Amy Alton and the Killington Bike Park to foster the community of passionate female mountain bikers.

“Our first year proved successful with many female riders of all ability levels enjoying the Friday bi-weekly rides and post-ride happy hour,” said Alton. “We welcomed total beginners, cross country riders looking to sharpen descending skills, and advanced rippers looking to explore new terrain over at Ramshead,”

Female mountain bikers of all ability levels meet bi-weekly for Friday night group rides and happy hours.

Alton added, “I continue to be astounded by Killington’s passionate community of women mountain bikers and am delighted to be partnering again with Killington Resort in support of the Divas of Dirt. Our community values a personal riding experience that supports and encourages one another. The Divas of Dirt rides hosted women from across the region as well as out of state and country in our first year and I look forward to another great season being a part of such a fun and fierce community.”
