Killington Resort brims with activities for Columbus weekend

Saturday & Sunday, Oct. 6-7—KILLINGTON—Killington Resort will be busy in the midst of fall foliage with a weekend full of events that will appeal to all ages.

Harvest Faire takes place Saturday, Oct. 6 and features complimentary activities for the whole family including horse-drawn hay rides, a bounce house, apple launching and stein hoisting. Attendees are also invited to join the Taste of Killington (tickets required) which will feature Killington Resort chefs serving up a variety of fall food samples made in-house with locally sourced ingredients. Live music with Andy Lugo and The Pete Kilpatrick Band will round out Saturday’s happenings.

On Sunday, Oct. 7, the lineup will feature the inaugural Woodward WreckTangle Regional Championships. Join ninja pros Joe Moravsky and Alyssa Beird from American Ninja Warrior and compete to post the fastest time through the WreckTangle at the Snowshed Adventure Center. The Woodward WreckTangle was new for summer 2018 and is an outdoor ninja obstacle challenge designed to encourage kids and adults to overcome challenges by using skill, strength, creativity, imagination and determination while igniting spatial awareness, athleticism, agility, and amusement. The event is open to participants ages 7 and up, and advance registration is recommended.

“We’re always looking for new ways to connect with our guests by offering cool experiences not available anywhere else,” said Justin Pill, events and sponsorships manager at Killington Resort. “Saturday’s line up of free activities, live music and food tastings followed by Sunday’s WreckTangle competition and opportunity to meet Joe and Alyssa highlights our unique approach to engaging our guests and being the best version of ourselves, locally.”

In addition to these new events, the Killington Ski Club will be hosting its annual Monster Ski and Bike Sale in Ramshead Lodge, Oct. 5-7. The sale offers unbelievable deals on new and used ski, snowboard and bike equipment and the opportunity to consign used equipment. Killington Bike Park will also be hosting the final Divas of Dirt group ride Friday, Oct. 5.
