Top international freestyle skiers train on Killington’s new mogul course

KILLINGTON — Killington Mountain School’s training venue on Highline has been living up to its “world class” billing welcoming the U.S., Japan and Russian Freestyle World Cup teams for training over the past two weekends. Flips, twists, speed and big air were on display as the athletes lapped the mogul course on Highline. The athletes were in the area and were looking for a place to train before and after the Lake Placid FIS Freestyle Cup, Jan. 29-31. KMS gladly welcomed them to their new course on Highline, which is part of a three-phase Trails Initiative built in partnership with Killington Resort. KMS athletes joined them on the course and enjoyed meeting and chatting with these international competitors. Some of the World Cup skiers on the Russian team also visited Killington Elementary School for a meet and greet session, Tuesday, Feb. 3.
