|Killington - What's New at Killington, Jan. 2011 |
The Superpipe at Bear Mountain, Killington, VT is being built before our eyes. Yesterday it wasn't even a halfpipe, just a little pile of snow. Today on January 2, 2011 the right wall is steep and taking shape.
Meanwhile, TWO new coffee places opened 3 weeks ago. One is the Vista View Deck, trailside on Great Eastern, and the other is Liquid Art on the Killington Road. We predict that both will be big winners!
