Killington College Week festivities continue

Karaoke, tray racing, yoga and concerts round out the week

Wednesday, Jan. 8- Friday Jan. 10—KILLINGTON— Killington Resort is rewarding the hard work of college students this semester with a series of fun activities around town. On Wednesday, head to the Nite Spot from 7-10 p.m. for some karaoke. You don’t have to be a professional to get on stage and sing your heart out! A judges panel will be giving away some great prizes and swag items to the most entertaining performers, but remember, no one is judging you!  Come to the newly opened Nite Spot and enjoy some great pizza, performances, and Natty Seltzer.

Then on Thursday at 1 p.m., the action moves to the slopes for a competition that you would most likely find on ESPN’s “The Ocho!”  That’s right, we’re talking about tray racing.  How fast can you race downhill on a food tray, shoot a mini basketball through a mini hoop and shoot a nerf gun at a target?  If you’re faster than your friends, then there’s some great prizes for you.

Win or lose, it’s time to celebrate with some live music at the Pickle Barrel. at 8 p.m. lespecial taking the stage to carve their own sonic path in modern music, creating their signature blend of “heavy future groove.” The power trio’s fresh synthesis of varied and divergent influences doesn’t underestimate the listener, reflecting a post-modern cultural climate in which fans have space on their aural palette for J Dilla, Radiohead, King Crimson and Fela Kuti. Veering from hip-hop to metal, prog to house, pensive indie-rock to apocalyptic dub, leaving room for head banging and hip swaying alike, while still presenting a unified sound and vision. This is a 21+ show. Tickets are $10.60 plus fees in advance, $12 plus tax at the door. For transportation, take the Barrel Rider by calling 802-422-RIDE (7433).

After all this action, you may need to relax a little.. For the healthy and early risers, join a free yoga class on the upper level of the Snowshed Lodge from 9 – 10 a.m.
