We're still around in the summer - are you? Killington is a great vacation destination no matter what the season.

Posted by on 4/22/2010 to Recent Blog Posts
Killington Resort announced that they will close the lifts for the season on April 25. We've still got a bit of snow on the mountain though, so it will definitely be worth the trip to skin up the mountain for a while after the lift service ends. One of the guys from the shop just got back from the mountain and said he hiked over to Rime, Reason and Double Dipper and they were worth the trip.

The announcement of the resort closing for the season brings mixed emotions...I am sad to see another winter gone, but excited to do all the spring and summer activities the Killington region has to offer. Just because the skiing is done, doesn't mean you shouldn't take a trip to Vermont! There is so much to do here in the non-winter months! There's lift assisted mountain biking at Killington Resort. There's great cross country mountain bike trails at Pine Hill Park in Rutland, there's rivers,lakes and streams everywhere for fishing, boating and kayaking. And let's not forget all the hiking! I could go on and on...

Oh, yeah, I don't want to forget to mention some of the great events coming to the Killington area this summer - the Killington Stage Race will be Memorial Day Weekend, the Green Mountain Relay June 19 - 20, the Killington Wine Festival July 16 - 18 and
the Gravity East Downhill Racing Series August 14 - 15 plus the Killington (Motorcycle) Classic September 9 - 12 just to mention a few.

So you can see, there are lots of good reasons to come to Killington, even after the snow has gone. And while you are here, stop in and see us for some great summer deals on this past seasons clothing and equipment. Help us make room for 2010-11 season goods!

Once the mountain closes, we too will be taking some time off. Please call us at 802-422-9447 or check our website for our hours during May, June and July. We'll be around - working on the website, and processing web orders, getting skis ready for athletes participating in summer camps and tuning race skis for those who want to get a jump start on next season. We'll also be making some changes in the back shop and tuning rooms to make our shop even more efficient.

Hope to see you this summer!
