Cheers to spring skiing! Girls toast to unforgettable moments at Killington, with the iconic Superstar ski trail in the background, adorned with bumped-up moguls.

Killington Resort is roaring into spring with a jam-packed event series as the longest season in the East extends beyond the rest.

“Long after other resorts have called it quits,
 the longest season in the East rages on
 with iconic events,” said Solimano.

“Spring may just be the best time to visit The Beast,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort. “Long after other resorts have called it quits, the longest season in the East rages on with iconic events such as the Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge and Pond Skim.

Our diligent mountain ops team continues to build a base, enabling us to keep legendary trails such as the Woodward Peace Park and Superstar rolling as long as Mother Nature allows.”

The 2024 Spring Pass is available starting Thursday, Feb. 22 for $359, providing skiers and snowboarders of all ages with unlimited spring skiing and riding from March 15 through the end of season, which goes as long as conditions allow.

March kicks off the spring event lineup with the 10th annual Slash & Berm Banked Slalom on March 1-3 and stretches into May with Vermont Green Up Day. This season also will introduce two female-centric events, Get the Girls Out! with SheJumps and Love Your Peaks from Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC).

Also new this year, the Pond Skim and Easter Sunrise Service will offer pre-registration to prevent having to turn guests away at the door. A nominal fee ($10) for the Easter service will benefit B4BC. Tickets for both events, as well as for the annual Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge, will go on sale Thursday, Feb. 22 at 10 a.m. 

In addition to headline events, the resort also plans to host several casually energetic happenings at the new K-1 Lodge and Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar throughout the spring. If conditions allow, The Beast will host a multi-sport weekend featuring skiing and riding, golf, and mountain biking over Memorial Day and offer skiing and riding into June.
