It was announced today that the longest season in the east is coming to an end. Killington Resort will be closing up shop for winter operations on June 2, 2019. This will mark the third time in the last 17 years that Killington has stayed open until June. The last two times were in 2017 and 2002.

As the lifts shut down on the afternoon of June 2, Killington will have been in operation for 211 days of the 2018/19 season. The schedule for the final weekend is as follows.

"The Superstar Express Quad will spin 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Friday, May 31 and 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2. Lift tickets will be $30* for all ages each day. Complimentary commemorative t-shirts will be available to the first 500 guests to load Superstar Express on June 1, and the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar will feature live music, free Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream for about 500 people starting at 3:00 p.m., an outdoor grill and views of the ski and snowboard action all day."

In a press release for the announcement of the closing weekend, Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington said “I’m thankful to the entire Killington team for providing such an outstanding season to our dedicated season pass holders and guests. We can’t wait to see everyone for one last weekend of skiing and tailgating, and look forward to serving up an adventure-filled summer.”

If you are looking for one last Vermont ski weekend, this would be the time to head to Killington to get it in. However, if you are looking to switch to summer activities, Killington is also open for those as well. Check in with their social media pages or their website for more information.
