Killington Resort to open June 1 for the last day of skiing and riding 

Killington Resort announced Thursday that it would indeed be opening June 1 for skiing and riding on Superstar; it’ll be the 196th operating day of the season. This is the third year in a row Killington’s season has lasted into June on Superstar, the same trail which will host the Stifel Killington Cup over Thanksgiving Weekend 2024.     

“Our grooming team has done some late season calculations and assures us there is enough snow remaining that with a little farming, they’ll be able to piece together one final day of skiing and riding,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort. “We are thrilled to offer this as a cap to the longest season in the East!” 

The Mountain Operations team plans to connect the Superstar trail below the headwall for nearly 1000-feet of vertical. Some walking, including on and off the chairlift will be required. The skiing and riding are recommended for experts only.   

The Superstar Express Quad will spin from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday only. Tickets will be $25 (all ages), with the proceeds benefiting the Killington Mountain Bike Club. Commemorative T-shirts will be given out while supplies last.   

Also on Saturday will be the first-ever Play Forever Mountain Clean-Up, where volunteers are sought to clean up parking lots and areas of the mountain on Snowshed and Ramshead. Participants will receive complimentary lunch and custom gloves, as well as be entered to win great raffle prizes from YETI. Registration is open now. The day will be capped off with a free live performance by NordPeak4 in the K-1 base area.
