Happy Holidays to all!

Have you been naughty or nice this holiday season? For you nice boys and girls, I'm going to give you a musical gift. In addition to the great skiing and riding at Killington, thanks to their world-class snowmaking, there will also be some great musicians rocking out in the base lodges. So take a break for some food and drink around 2 p.m. and get ready to rock. Some of the hottest acts shuffle around the base lodges. Look for Joey Leone, Duane Carleton, Jamie's Junk Show, Bi-Polar Bears, Jonathan Newell, just to name a few.

The legendary slopeside bar, Mahogany Ridge at the K1 Base Lodge, has music Thursday through Saturday and Monday. They will also be having some entertainment out at the brand new Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar and Deck.
Also find spectacular views and live entertainment at the Long Trail Pub at Snowshed Lodge every Friday and Saturday. The Long Trail Pub is a restaurant and a sports bar, so you don't have to the games either! While you're here, try their signature Snowshed Red Ale.
Bear Mountain rocks out every Saturday, once they open for the season, which could be as early as this weekend, conditions permitting! This is the place to go for a cold beer on the deck overlooking the Superpipe and Outer Limits. You can also enjoy fresh hand-tossed pizza while listening to those great bands.
Pico Mountain has entertainment every Friday and Saturday in the Last Run Lounge. This authentic ski lodge pub, located on the top level of Pico Lodge, features a cozy fireplace and a wood-timbered ceiling.
You also can warm up by the fire, listen to some great music, have a drink and eat some delicious food at Ovations Restaurant once the lifts close after 4 p.m. every Saturday. Ovations is a fine dining family restaurant with plenty of healthy kid options on the menu too. Of course, they also have a great musical rotation of Jim Hollis, Chuck Kelsey, James Joel and Wayne Canney.
