KILLINGTON-Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard
resort in the East, received its first winter storm of 2012 with 16
inches of new snow which began on Thursday morning, Jan.12 and
continued for three days. The new snow allowed Ski Patrol to open
more than 35 new trails.
"We are very pleased with the new snow fall," said Rob Megnin,
director of sales, marketing and reservations for Killington
Resort. "The timing of this storm couldn't be better with guests
arriving for the extended holiday weekend and the upcoming Winter
Dew Tour, the largest on-snow event in the East, next weekend,"
Killington currently has 101 open trails, which translates to 45
miles of skiing and riding for all ability levels across six peaks.
The Resort has received 73 inches of snow so far this season with
an average mid-mountain base depth of 24-36 inches. This weekend,
snowmaking will continue to supplement the natural snow that
continues to be forecast for our area.
While skiers and riders are rejoicing with the outstanding
conditions, road crews from the Vermont Department of
Transportation are out in full force plowing, sanding and salting
