Killington Parks hosts one last hurrah before hibernating

Saturday, March 30, 9 a.m.—KILLINGTON— The Nor’Beaster at Killington Resort is in full throttle with the Hibernation Park Jam taking place at Bear Mountain Saturday, March 30.

Another great season with Killington Parks is once again coming to an end. Before they put the metal back in the shop, come lap the parks for one last spring event. Soft landings, good vibes, goggle tans and lunch are all on the agenda. Shred with the Beast, take home some prizes, and send Killington Parks out in style

Shred Sessions will take place from 9:30-11 a.m. during Parks Appreciation Day. Start the morning off with the park crew. They’ll be lapping the park and tossing swag to anyone stomping tricks and having a good time. This event is free and open to the public.

The official Hibernation Park Jam takes place from 1-3 p.m. Meet in the Fuel TV Lounge on the third floor of Bear Mountain Lodge for lunch (competitors only). All registration for the Park Jam will take place from 9-11 a.m. only. The entry fee for all divisions is $20, which includes lunch. There will be no online pre-registration for this event.

Competitors will be required to have a season pass or lift ticket in order to compete. Discounted lift tickets for competitors will be available for purchase at registration.
