Guest Experience Gets Even Better at Killington Resort and Pico Mountain with $5.7 Million Capital Investment in Winter Infrastructure and Renewable Energy in 2018

New snowmaking and grooming equipment, along with increased sustainable energy resources, will give guests unbeatable on-mountain experience in 2017/18 at Killington and Pico

KILLINGTON, Vt. (October 4, 2017) – Carrying the momentum of a two-year commitment to host the Audi FIS Ski World Cup in 2017 and 2018, Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard resort in Eastern North America and part of the POWDR adventure lifestyle company, will offer a number of guest experience upgrades this coming season. POWDR has invested $5.7 million in capital improvements at Killington and Pico across the properties year-round attractions. The investments in 2017/2018 will further enhance snowmaking equipment and infrastructure, upgrade and rebuild lifts, expand summer activities at the resort and improve the overall experience at both resorts.

Since POWDR purchased Killington Resort and Pico Mountain in 2007, infrastructure improvements have exceeded more than $50 million, including a new lift, lift drives, snowmaking systems and Killington’s signature Peak Lodge. POWDR is committed to creating sustainable communities and engaging the next generation of action sports enthusiasts and their significant investment at Killington and Pico support this mission.

“As we prepare to host another Ski World Cup in November, investments are being made to further enrich the experience at Killington and Pico,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort. “The investments being made this year will help Killington and Pico preserve leadership in resort operations, sustainability and overall guest experience year-round. Last year, we hosted the longest winter season in the East, operating 201 days between October 22 and June 1, and we’re hopeful that 2018 will be bigger and better with these enhancements.”

Snowmaking Equipment and Infrastructure

Killington Resort will make major investments to its state-of-the-art snowmaking capabilities, highlighted by a partnership with Efficiency Vermont to add 163 new low energy tower snow guns. This significant increase in low energy tower guns, along with a number of other critical system improvements, not only push’s the resort closer to a sustainable operation, but allows Killington to open ski terrain much more quickly and efficiently. Best-in-class snowmaking is a key reason Killington is able to host the Audi FIS Ski World Cup in November. In total, Killington Resort will earmark $1.7 million in snowmaking improvements and upgrades for 2018.

Pico Mountain improves snowmaking by increasing water capacity in their two snowmaking ponds with a dredging project completed this past summer. Additionally, key pipelines were replaced, valve stations upgraded and pump houses augmented to improve snowmaking at Pico Mountain. This $200,000 investment in snowmaking will enhance the guest experience and conditions throughout the 2017/2018 season.

Snow Grooming Machines

Killington has added three new grooming tractors to its impressive fleet of snow groomers. The new snow groomers are among the most powerful and efficient pieces of machinery in the industry and will enhance the operator’s ability to deliver the best possible snow surface. A Prinoth groomer comes with the latest technology for terrain park grooming, providing the ability to creatively shape trending features which will further enhance Killington’s world-class terrain parks. Killington will invest $965,000 in new snow grooming equipment this year.

Lift Upgrades and Rebuilds

Killington Resort will make significant upgrades this year to its lift infrastructure, totaling $665,000 in improvements. As design and pricing is ongoing for a proposed new South Ridge lift for 2018/19, existing ski lifts are being upgraded. The Snowdon Triple is undergoing significant upgrades over two years with new haul rope, additional towers, a mid-station, new communications infrastructure and lift line tower heads while the K-1 Express Gondola, Sunrise Village Triple and Superstar Express Quad also receive upgraded equipment. These improvements are part of an annual program to upgrade older lift technology. The upgrade program, along with the proposed addition of a new ski lift, continues to enhance the guest accessibility to ski terrain with the resorts massive 27 lift network. 

Summer Activity Upgrades

With summer now marching into fall, the warmer season remains top-of-mind with completed investments. Killington Resort added activities for young children in the Adventure Center for this past summer, which already offered a wide array of attractions such as a trampoline jump, zip lining and the popular Beast Mountain Coaster. Adults enjoyed improvements to the Snowshed Umbrella Bar, a year-round bar and deck located slope side near the water at Snowshed Pond while guests of all ages can enjoy a new bocce ball court, and enhanced Witchcraft event programing this fall, as well as a variety of other projects to increase the guest experience. In total, $689,000 will be allocated to summer activities at Killington.

Mountain Bike Park

The Killington Mountain Bike Park is in the midst of a multi-year build out designed by Gravity Logic, a world leader in the design of sustainable progressive mountain bike trails for summer resort operations, which will continue to set the standard for mountain bike park operations in the eastern U.S. New projects include a new 2.5 mile jump trail, skills park and a 1.6 mile old school hybrid trail for an exciting and diverse riding experience bikers of all levels can enjoy. Three high-speed detachable lifts, including the K-1 Express Gondola service all of the bike park’s terrain, setting Killington Resort apart from the competition. No other bike park in New England is served by as many high-speed lifts. Also, added this year are state-of-the-art bike carriers on the Snowshed and Ramshead Express Quads, which allow riders to self-load their bikes creating an ease of use factor and increased uphill carrying capacity.. With the addition of more than 10 new miles of trail in the last two bike seasons, there are now 30 miles of trails, making it the largest downhill bike park in eastern North America. Killington will have invested $500,000 in bike park improvements before the end of operations this fall.

Solar Sites and Renewable Energy

Already a leader in sustainability, Killington Resort and Pico Mountain will increase its renewable power capabilities as a part of POWDR’s Play Forever sustainability efforts. Killington and Pico will have nine solar installations for 2017/18, featuring six resort locations with three AllEarth Solar Trackers which have been designed, tested and engineered in Vermont at each. The units use GPS technology to follow the sun throughout the day, allowing them to produce up to 45 percent more energy than a fixed system. The trackers, plus three new rooftop installations, are expected to generate approximately 200,000 kWh of clean electricity annually.

In addition to the on-mountain solar installations, Killington partnered with Namaste Solar to develop four off-site solar farms within a short drive from the mountain. The four projects will be energized before the end of 2017 and generate more than 3,000,000 kWh of electricity per year, which is equivalent to nearly 12% percent of the resorts annual usage. The projects allow Killington to realize significant savings while doing its part to help the state of Vermont meet the visionary goal of achieving 90 percent of Vermont’s total energy needs from renewable sources by 2050. The projects also help the resort reinvest into its energy future. Additionally, two new electric car charging stations are being added along with the existing unit at the Grand Hotel. Each new site will have both a Tesla and a universal charger.

Ongoing Infrastructure Improvements

Killington Resort will continue to improve the overall delivery of service to its guests with a number of other infrastructure and operations improvements at the property. Fiscal year 2018 improvements will include a new state-of-the-art tuning machine for its demo and modern rental ski fleet, new vehicles, and other impactful guest experience projects.

USSA Proposes World Cup Ski Racing’s Return to Killington

Two-Year Deal Poised to Make Thanksgiving Weekend Ski Racing a New Vermont Tradition

Killington, VT – The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA), along with its resort partner POWDR, is proposing a two-year agreement for Vermont’s Killington Resort to again host the Audi FIS Ski World Cup. After years of work by the USSA to find an opportunity to bring World Cup ski racing to the most populated region of the country, Killington hosted an expectation-shattering inaugural World Cup Weekend during November 2016 that drew an estimated 30,000 spectators, and New England’s largest resort hopes to carry that momentum into future events.

Killington plans to enter a two-year race agreement with USSA to bring World Cup racing back to Vermont in 2017 and 2018, and Killington’s place on next year’s World Cup calendar is expected be confirmed during meetings of the International Ski Federation (FIS) in Portoroz, Slovenia in late May. Pending FIS approval, the next World Cup at Killington would take place November 25-26, 2017, Thanksgiving Weekend.

The proposed November, 2017 World Cup would include women’s giant slalom and slalom races, attracting athletes such as U.S. Ski Team superstars Julia Mancuso and Mikaela Shiffrin.

As with last year’s FIS World Cup, the proposed 2017 and 2018 World Cup races at Killington would be broadcast worldwide to over 60 nations, along with national broadcast coverage across the US. The event is anticipated to bring millions of dollars in economic impact to the state of Vermont.

“Establishing a multi-year World Cup schedule here at Killington is an incredible opportunity to bring even more visibility to the resort and our community, which has been extremely supportive of our efforts to bring these races back. I was blown away by the sheer size of the crowd last year, and the enthusiasm I witnessed leads me to believe that we’ll bring in even more spectators this year to watch the fastest female ski races in the world take on the Superstar trail,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “We used every cold period in October and November to build a world-class race venue on Superstar, and getting the job done so early in the season showcased our snowmaking system as an industry-leading powerhouse.”

Last November’s races in Killington marked the first World Cup in the eastern US since 1991 when the U.S. Ski Team’s Julie Parisien won the giant slalom at Waterville Valley, NH.

The USSA has had a long relationship with POWDR producing World Cup and Grand Prix events at Copper Mountain and Park City Mountain Resort, and the collaboration for Killington’s World Cup in 2016 solidified The Beast of the East as a strong venue for World Cup alpine ski racing in addition to the regularly hosted FIS Cup and USSA races.

“Last year we accomplished all of our goals, which were to promote eastern skiing and Killington to the global audience. It was very powerful to see the local and regional communities come together to support World Cup racing,” says Herwig Demschar, chair of Killington’s World Cup Local Organizing Committee and VP of International Business Development at POWDR. “We have a blueprint for successful races to build on, and we are going to throw a party you don’t want to miss,” adds Demschar.

“We are going to throw a party you don’t want to miss.”- Herwig Demschar, Local Organizing Committee chair.

“We would be thrilled to work together with the Killington community, USSA and the amazing athletes to host another World Cup and make it even bigger and better than before,” says John Cumming, founder and CEO of POWDR. “Killington is a special place, and to again have the excitement and energy of World Cup ski racing return to the East, to the beautiful
mountains of Vermont, is an experience we would enthusiastically embrace and look forward to sharing with the world. As proven by last year’s World Cup, the Killington team is one of the best in the business and up for the challenge.”

  • 2016’s Audi FIS Ski World Cup at Killington was the first World Cup in the eastern USA since 1991 at Waterville Valley, NH and the first in Vermont since 1978 at Stratton Mountain. \
