Killington Resort became the first resort to open for skiing and riding in the East on Sunday, Nov. 3. About 100 attended opening day to ski and ride the mountain’s two uppermost trails—Rime and Reason.
The first day was limited to the mountain’s season pass holders and those who hold the multi-resort Ikon Pass. The resort opened to the general public on Monday, Nov. 4.
Killington Communications/PR & Social Media Manager Courtney DiFiore said temperatures dropped Friday afternoon and resort officials turned on snowmaking guns on Rime, Reason, Upper East Fall, Superstar and the top of Skylark. The resort opened the Upper East Fall trail on Monday in addition to the Woodward Mountain Park zone, a pop-up park on Reason.
Resort officials said to expect early season conditions with no suitable terrain for beginners.
Killington has historically been the first to open and the last to close in the East. Last year it opened on Oct. 19 and closed June 2.
