The Time Has Come New England -- The 2019/2020 Ski Season Starts Tomorrow At Killington

As the season has been ramping up quick and early in the west, there were those here in the east wondering when the season would make its way here and who would be the first to have runs available for New England skiers and riders. Well, the "when" is now and the "where" is at the exact place you knew it would be...Killington, Vermont.

Starting tomorrow, November 3, Killington Resort will begin the longest season in the east with a preview day reserved exclusively for Season Pass, Express Card, Beast 365, and Ikon pass holders. The K-1 Express Gondola will start spinning at 11 A.M. and run until 3 P.M. For those who want to go a little longer on opening day, the new North Ridge Quad will be running until 3:45 P.M.

For the general public, you won't have to wait very long. The mountain opens to everyone the following day, November 4. That day will start bright and early at 9 A.M.

“There’s a lot to celebrate this year opening weekend at Killington,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “On top of all the improvements we made last year to elevate the guest experience, our pass holders will have the opportunity to be the first guests to experience the brand new North Ridge Quad. We’re also excited to show off the progress we’ve made on phase 1 of the new K-1 Lodge.”

The Snowshed Sales Center will be open Sunday 9:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. and Monday starting at 8:30 A.M., for RFID pass pick up and pass purchases. K-1 Guest Services will be open starting at 9:30 A.M. on Sunday selling Season Passes and Express Cards for same-day access to the slopes. Express Card holders will only be charged $25 for all ages on Opening Day, and children ages 6 and under will receive a Kids Ski Free ticket if accompanied by a season pass holder. No other passes, tickets, vouchers or reciprocal discounts will be accepted on this day. Beginning Monday, daily lift tickets will be $59 for adults (ages 19-64), $45 for youth (ages 7-18) and $50 for seniors (ages 65-79). Express Card holders will receive 50% off lift ticket window rate for midweek, and 25% off weekend rates.

New for the 2019-20 season, the Woodward Mountain Park at Killington is a network of featured terrain zones that, together, offer a balanced variety of exciting on-mountain experiences for all ages and abilities. On Monday, when open to the general public, Killington’s first Woodward Mountain Park zone – a temporary pop up park in the North Ridge area on Reason – will make its debut. The early season rail garden is the first terrain park to open in the east each season. As the season continues and conditions permit, the Woodward Mountain Park network of zones will expand.
