The Sports Illustarted Next Snow SEARCH Finals kicks off Friday at Bear Mountain! This event is a culmination of a nationwide search for the best skiers and riders ages 9-13 years old. Over 100 athletes will compete in on the snow activities that include moguls, slopestyle, carving, gates and superpipe. Lindsay will be here Saturday, check it out on Killington's website
At Killington we are skiing and riding on the most open terrain served by the most lifts in the East. We currently have 85% of our total terrain open and are continuing to expand on a daily basis. Mountain Ops will have 78 trails groomed for Friday
Snow is likely for Friday afternoon... Sunshine and blue skies in the morning will turn to scattered snow showers later on in the day. Temperatures will be great for snowmaking and we will continue our expansion Friday. But remember to layer up before you hit the slopes, it will be chilly at the Peak

Our seven peaks are big, the highest lift serviced skiing in New England in fact, and greatest vertical in New England at 3,050', but they aren't just for the experts in your crowd. Sure we've got 200 trails that include knee-buckling bump runs, breath-grabbing steeps and cruisers, and favorites like Downdraft, Ovation, and of course Outer Limits, the steepest mogul slope in New England.
