Killington & Sunday River to Open for Skiing & Snowboarding

The word is both Killington and Sunday River resorts will open tomorrow October 29, 2012. With early snows and opening in Colorado there will be skiing and snowboarding east and west.

At Killington this weekend lift tickets are $39 for adults (19-64), $33 for Young Adults/Seniors (13-18/65+) and $27 for Juniors (7-12). Season pass holders who have not activated their passes may do so at the Snowshed Sales Center beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Beverages, hot dogs, chili and light snacks will be available for purchase at the base of the North Ridge Triple Chair and the K-1 Lodge will be open for ticket sales, lunch, guest service, retail and restrooms.

And the report from Sunday River is -
Sunday River will officially open for the 2011-12 season on Saturday, October 29 at 10:01am for a three-day weekend, marking the fifth year in a row we've been skiing and riding by Halloween.
The Locke Mountain Triple will spin for skiing and riding on the T2 trail on upper Locke Mountain, plus an early-season terrain park set up with a single barrel rail, flat rail and flat box will be available. Lift service will open at 8am on Sunday and 9am on Monday, running to 4pm daily with the last upload at 3:30pm. 
Lift tickets for Saturday through Monday will be $29 and available at at Barker Base Lodge, but as a special Halloween treat anyone in costume can ski for free on Monday.  No, dressing as a skier or snowboarder does not count, and if you question the validity of your costume we suggest bringing candy which may help convince the ticket staff.

Let the fun begin, see you on the hill.
