Here's the report from the Killington Resort—They are still skiing!!

Skiing Memorial Day Weekend

Killington Conditions
Our snowmakers built the base, you bumped and believed, and Mother Nature has thus far cooperated - that's right, the longest season in the East rolls on this Memorial Day Weekend (Friday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Saturday/Sunday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. & Monday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) at the only East Coast resort still turning a lift for skiing and snowboarding!

Sunday, May 28 is day 200 of our winter season, and you're invited to celebrate and share cake with us at the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar around noon! This isn't the end, though, conditions permitting, we'll reopen Thursday, June 1 and beyond - stay tuned!
 
On Monday, May 29, we're celebrating Memorial Day by offering FREE skiing/snowboarding, mountain biking and golfing to all active duty, retired and honorably discharged members of the US Military - just present valid military I.D. a copy of your DD214 form or discharge certificate at a ticket window or the golf pro shop!
 
This weekend winter and summer collide.  The Golf Course is open for pass holders only on Friday, then daily summer operations begin for the public on Saturday, May 27. Golf Course pass holders also enjoy a 20% discount at the Clubhouse Bar & Grill May 26-June 9.
 
Over at the Bike Park, Snowshed lift service begins with weekend service (Saturdays, Sundays and Memorial Day 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) until Vermont Bike & Brew weekend (June 10) when Ramshead comes online and daily lift service starts.

The Snowshed Adventure Center also opens this weekend with the Beast Mountain Coaster and Skyeride operating 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and Memorial Day until the full Adventure Center begins daily operations June 17. We also expect the hiking center, K-1 Gondola and Peak Lodge to open on June 17.

As we continue our spring skiing and riding operations, be sure to check the Daily Report for up to date operations info – conditions change fast this time of year.
