So here it is folks!!!
Get out and ski. I’ll be surely somewhere this weekend, but I’ll go where the weather takes me and where I can get a ride too.
reopening this weekend, May 2nd and 3rd. The Jet Triple will be spinning with access to The Jet and The Haynes (advanced terrain only). Lift tickets will be $39 for adults and $29 for juniors, and tickets purchased Saturday will be valid for skiing on Sunday.
Killington: closing SATURDAY MAY 2
Young Adult/Senior: $41.00
Junior/Senior Plus: $35.00
Sunshine and spring weather for Thursday as we enjoy the final three days of the season here at Killington. Enjoy spring skiing and riding through Saturday off the Superstar Express! Killington is offering Blue Square and Black Diamond terrain only.
It is 99% certain that we will be open this weekend.”

I’ll thow in the extra percentage point and say this weekend’s a ‘go.’ (Barring any kind of cataclysmic weather event, of course:)
We still have a heaping of snow on Stein’s and the plan right now is to spin the Valley House double from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday and Sunday. The mountain crew will try to piece together a route on Upper Snowball to have some intermediate terrain, but expect this last weekend to be a “Mogul Mania.”
The lift ticket for the entire weekend (Saturday and Sunday) will be only $39. Anyone bringing a valid 08/09 season pass from another area can ski for $29. (This includes Mt. Ellen pass holders.) Sugarcard holders will also ski/ride for $29. An 2009-10 All-Mountain 7 season pass will be raffled off at 5:00 PM Sunday. All ticket buyers, pass holders and Sugarcard holders can fill-out their raffle ticket at the ticket window in the Gate House Lodge.
Thanks to last night’s cooler temperatures groomers were able to go to town on our open terrain. They buffed out Hayburner, Candy Side, King Landing, and the east side of Skidder, making for a fun day of skiing as we beat the heat and enjoy these last days of skiing for the 08-09 season! Ticket prices are a flat $35 for all ages through the end of the season, so come on up and snag your final turns! It’s worth it to know you milked this snow to the last drop!
Just like yesterday, expect surfaces to be on the firm side again this morning because of last night’s temps and keep in mind that we’re deep into spring conditions these days and bare spots do exist, and some walking may be required in certain locations.

Skiing and swimming at the beginning of May, does it seem possible? Yes it is, because the new Mont Saint-Sauveur pool & spa will be in operation as soon as this Saturday. For the event, a huge party is organized on the slopes and besides the pool and the spas! Skiing, swimming, DJ, BBQ, contests and prizes are on the program for the weekend. You do not want to miss this party!
MEMBERS OF ALL STATIONS
Guests with a 2008-2009 season pass from any ski resort in Quebec are invited to ski for only $15 at Mont Saint-Sauveur until the end of the season. You just have to present your season pass at the Customer Service and you will get a full-day lift ticket.
