It’s June, and there is still skiing to be had here in Vermont! Killington just announced that this will be its last weekend of skiing for the season. Meanwhile, you can head north or south for awesome half marathons, including one that ends with beer from Hill Farmstead (what’s not to like about that?). For a really tough race, check out the Endurance Society’s Infinitus series in Goshen, or give back with a little trailwork through Fellowship of the Wheel.
The Superstar Express Quad will spin from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, May 31 and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday June 1 & 2. Lift tickets will be $30 for all ages each day, with live music at the Umbrella Bar, free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for the first 500 people at 3 p.m., an outdoor grill and plenty of deep bump skiing.
When the season closes out on Sunday, Killington will have opened for 211 days of skiing and riding for winter 2018-2019.
Choose from an 8-miler, a marathon, an 88K, a 100-mile, a 250-mile race, a deca-marathon (10 marathons in 10 days) and an 888K race on a marked trail loop at the Blueberry Hill Outdoor Center.
Choose a 5K, 10K or 15K. The race begins at Airport Park and follows a gravel trail out onto the Causeway to finish again at Airport Park.
