Mad River Glen
Mad River Glen has officially broken its record for the longest season in its 70 year history. April 20, 2019 was MRG's 136th operating day of the 2018-19 ski season. In the words of Porky Pig, "that's all, folks!"
Fare the well 2018-2019!! Thanks for a great year!!
The great thing about Killington is that we stay open long after the rest of the resorts shut down their lifts – we keep the party going into summer. In fact, our mountain biking opens while we’re still skiing – golf course too! You could potentially have a tri-sport weekend if Mother Nature does her thing.
“There’s a reason The King of Spring calls Killington home. We’re known for soft turns, long days of sunshine and weekends packed with events and live music,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort. “We pride ourselves on hosting the longest season in the East and hope to stretch this season beyond Memorial Day on Superstar’s World Cup base while enjoying some friendly competition at events like the Hibernation Park Jam on March 30, Killington Triathlon and May Day Slalom.”
Since we never really know our closing weekend until days before, we do something more “beastly”. We pack every weekend in the spring with an event that’s sure to satisfy our guests need for soft turns and goggle tans. We call it the NOR’BEASTER Spring Events List. Here’s what’s left so far:
April 20: Dazed & Defrosted – Truly a celebration of spring complete with soft bumps, cold brews, on-snow demos, and great live music.
April 27: Killington Triathlon
May 1: May Day Slalom
Memorial Day Weekend at Killington is expected to feature prime late-spring skiing and riding, plus the kickoff of summer operations including the Killington Golf Course, Adventure Center and Mountain Bike Park.
