World Cup tickets go on sale Oct. 12

 

 

Tickets for the 2023 Stifel Killington Cup will be available for purchase starting Oct.12 at 10 a.m. at Killington.com. 

Taking place Nov. 24-26, the Audi FIS Ski World Cup will once again bring the women’s Giant Slalom and Slalom races to Vermont. The event is expected to attract Stifel U.S. Ski Team superstars, including five-time Killington Cup Slalom victor and winningest Alpine skier in history Mikaela Shiffrin, as well as former University of Vermont skier and 2023 world champion Paula Moltzan.

Returning this year is the athlete bib presentation, fireworks display and festival village opening to kick things off on Friday Nov. 24. No ticket is required for the Friday night activities, which are free to the public. 

Saturday and Sunday will feature world-class ski racing, as well as live music performances, starting at just $10 per a ticket. The event will highlight Heroic, an initiative empowering women in the ski industry, with panel discussions and a premiere of the women’s ski film “Advice for Girls.”

“I am thrilled to welcome the World Cup back to Killington once again. It is the best way to kick off the season, a testament to our snowmaking team and the strength of the ski community as a whole,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “The Stifel Killington Cup is about the community as much as the competition. Last year, we were able to donate $270,000 to support regional winter sports organizations through the Killington World Cup Foundation, and we are proud to continue this tradition and donate a portion of ticket sales, including 100% of VIP packages, again this year.”

A percentage from all ticket options benefits the Killington World Cup Foundation (KWCF), which supports athlete team services and provides grants to bolster winter sports infrastructure and access to winter sports throughout the region. Proceeds from 2022 ticket sales supported over 31 winter sports programs in nine states. 

Ticket offerings vary:

General admission ($10 per day) viewing areas are located all around the base of Superstar Trail and adjacent to the racecourse. Two video boards will provide top-to-bottom race coverage while approximately 35% of the course will be visible from these areas.

VIP packages — sold in partnership with the Killington World Cup Foundation — offer silver, gold and platinum packages and include exclusive access to the VIP tent. Information about VIP package options or getting on the waitlist for individual tickets can be found at kwcfgivesback.org.

Premier grandstand ( $100 Saturday and $90 Sunday) offers guaranteed access to the highest five rows of the grandstands at the base of Superstar trail, providing one of the best vantage points of the course.  

Grandstands ($45 Saturday and $40 Sunday) are located at the base of the Superstar trail, adjacent to the racecourse, and are general admission for all rows except the top five. The grandstand provides an elevated view of the racecourse, along with two jumbo screens.  

K-1 preferred parking is available again this year. Preferred parking is $90 on Saturday and $85 on Sunday and entitles purchasers access to the K-1 parking lots for one vehicle. Free parking and shuttles will continue to be available around Killington Resort.
