KILLINGTON, Vermont -- Thanks to two weeks of optimal snowmaking temperatures, Killington Resort opens for the 2007-08 ski and snowboard season Friday at 9 a.m. with up to 19 trails served by three lifts off Killington Peak and Snowdon Mountain.
Killington Resort, which features the most extensive snowmaking system in the world covering more than 750 of the resort's 1,215 total acres, began snowmaking operations off the 4,241-foot summit of Killington Peak – the highest lift-served skiing in Vermont - on October 28th. For opening day, skiers and riders will enjoy deep base depths on up to seven miles of groomed trails. Killington will offer Blue Square (more advanced) and Black Diamond (most advanced) trails only. No Green Circle (easier) terrain will be available.
