The King of Spring keeps the party alive through May 26

Killington is the last resort open in the east, and one of seven open nationwide

KILLINGTON - Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner and Killington Resort plans to continue offering spring skiing and riding, conditions permitting. Killington is the last resort open in the east, and was one of just seven nationwide, as of Tuesday, May 21.

Toss the clubs in the car too, the Killington Golf Course will be open daily starting Friday, May 24


               
UPDATE: Thursday, May 23
The Drift: Greetings!
Given the intensity of the rain we received last night and the forecast of significant rain starting tonight through the day on Saturday, our operational plans have changed since last night's communication. This weekend (May 25th & May 26th), we will be offering FREE skiing and riding for all at Killington! Walking between snowfields will be required in several spots.   Ma Nature is charging into summer and has other things in mind for us other than skiing, like golf and Mt Biking? To push any remaining snow to make connecting bridges would only hasten the melt process. Please note we are now going to operate Saturday and Sunday only, from 8-5, on the Superstar lift and trail.

We gave it our best shot to get into June, thus at the end of business on Sunday we are calling it a season. We thank all for your patronage and support this year. Don't forget to buy your season passes for next year's greatest value opportunity by June 13! 

Remember only 130 days until we're at it again for 2013-14!

Ski and ride the longest season in the east.
