Spectating: Tips and tricks on how to watch the races


Spectators are invited to watch the action all weekend at Killington Resort. All festivities and events are based at the Ramshead base area of Killington Resort. 

All events are free to watch and hiking up the trails for better viewing is encouraged. A $15 spectator pass to ride the Ramshead Express quad uphill will also be available for purchase on the second floor of the Ramshead lodge. 

Back by popular demand will be the USO Best Whip, taking place on a massive set of jumps carved into the base area of the bike park for a premier viewing experience. This invitational competition is a crowd-favorite and a must-see.

Beyond the competition, the Fox U.S. Open attracts race fans, freeriders and families and the Killington Bike Park will remain open to the public throughout the entire event.
