Killington College kicks off Jan. 7

Jan. 7-11—KILLINGTON—Calling all college students! You worked hard all semester, now it’s time to blow off a little steam at the Beast. Killington College Week is filled with loads of activities both on and off the hill.

In addition to parties and events talking place day and night, students will receive discounts at restaurants, nightclubs and retail shops along Killington Road.

To start the week, the Beast is offering two chances to win a season pass. First, take part in the Selfie Scavenger Hunt at Killington Resort on Monday, Jan. 7. Follow the instructions and use the trail map to find hidden locations. Take a selfie at the location and hashtag #KillingtonCollege on Twitter or Instagram. All photos must be take between 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The winner will be picked based on finding all locations and a judge’s panel will vote on the best photos. The winner receives a 2018/19 season pass! Get access to the instructions at killington.com.

The party continues Monday night with an 18-plus costume party at Outback Pizza and Nightclub, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. Missed Halloween? No worries. Best costume wins a 2018/19 Winter Season Pass to Killington Resort. Costumes aren’t required, but it may be worth putting in some effort!

After a day on the slopes Tuesday, hit the Killington Tubing Park from 5-7 p.m. for a Get Down & Glow Tubing Party. The park will transform into an all-out laser light, glow sticking, glow-in-the-dark party. There will be a new entertainment group to light up the night with amazing visuals and special effects alongside a DJ. Dress warm, but bring glow sticks and dancing shoes because this outdoor party could get hot. If it’s still too cold, there will be space inside with food and beverages to warm up. The Killington Tubing Park is located at the Clubhouse on East Mountain Road across from the Killington Grand Resort Hotel.

On Wednesday, Jan. 9, the Jamaican Jerk Shack transforms into a Natty Dread party with reggae music, steel drums, palm trees and irie vibes, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wear red, green and yellow attire to get into the Island spirit. There will be an Island theme photo booth with all the props and attire to get you looking right, plus the Jerk Shack will honor 20 percent discount with proof of college ID or College Week Lift Ticket (excludes alcohol).

Moving down the access road, Thursday, Jan. 10 will see events at the Pickle Barrel and the Foundry. From 7-9 p.m., join the collegiate version of the weekly Bud Light Pond Hockey Series at the Foundry from 7-9 p.m. Take on teams from other schools for bragging rights. The winning team gets a gift certificate to Preston’s. Skates, sticks and helmets will be available to rent on-site. Or, for those that are ready to be inside for the night, head to Pickle Barrel at 8 p.m. Kung Fu – a quintet of masterfully seasoned musicians – will blend electro-jazz-funk with an EDM informed danceability at the highest level of skill and inspiration. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.

Ending the week on Friday, Jan. 11 is Hangover Yoga. For the health and early risers, join the free yoga class at the Peak Lodge from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Enjoy the amazing views of the Green Mountains from 4241’ while letting the sunshine in from the 360 degree windows. Lift tickets are required to ride the gondola, or purchase a foot-passenger ticket.

Many area businesses offer discounts to college students during Killington College Week, so be sure to check out where you can get the “good deal.”  College ID must be presented to utilize discounts.
