Tickets benefit the Killington World Cup Foundation
KILLINGTON—Killington Resort announced that tickets for the 2021 HomeLight Killington Cup will be available for purchase starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19, at killington.com. Taking place Nov. 27-28, the Audi FIS Ski World Cup will once again bring the women’s giant slalom and slalom races to Vermont and is expected to attract U.S. Ski Team superstar and four-time HomeLight Killington Cup slalom victor Mikaela Shiffrin and last season’s overall World Cup winner, Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova, to compete against the best women’s technical alpine skiers in the world.
“The Northeast’s passion for ski racing runs deep and after a year hiatus, the entire community is excited to welcome back world class alpine skiing to Killington. The athletes, fans and volunteers bring a level of energy that is unmatched from anything else we experience at the resort,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “This year, the HomeLight Killington Cup will continue to focus on supporting the regional winter sports community by donating a percentage of ticket sales, including 100% of proceeds from general admission, to support the Killington World Cup Foundation. In 2019, the foundation supported over 21 winter sports programs in seven different states with $250,000 in grants raised during the World Cup.”
Killington’s priority is to protect the wellbeing of spectators, athletes and staff for the duration of the event. Actions being taken to prioritize the wellbeing of the community include ticketing the entire event, including general admission, to control attendance, and required proof of vaccine or a negative Covid-19 test within 72-hours.
“It’s exciting to come back together and celebrate ski racing as a community again,” said Herwig Demschar, chair of Killington’s World Cup local organizing committee. “In addition to an already action-packed, fun-filled weekend of ski racing, Killington will offer entertainment and a robust festival village while keeping the health and safety of guests top of mind.”
New this year, a percentage of all ticket options will benefit the Killington World Cup Foundation, which supports athlete hospitality and provides grants to bolster winter sports infrastructure and access to winter sports throughout the region. Ticket offerings for the 2021 HomeLight Killington Cup include:
