KILLINGTON, Vermont — With more than a foot of snow from the latest storm, Killington Resort will be serving up a skiing and snowboarding feast with more than 40 trails and 10 lifts for the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend, the most Thanksgiving terrain open in the past 10 years.
“Thanks to the fresh snow we received today, Killington Resort will continue to have the most open terrain in New England over the holiday weekend,” stated Patricia Ryan, director of sales and marketing for Killington Resort, “and the forecast is calling for cold weather and snow flurries throughout the next five days, which are ideal skiing and riding conditions.”
