Tis’ the season to hit the slopes, and Barista Kids and Killington have teamed up to give a four pack of lift tickets away to one lucky reader. With exciting events lined up all winter long and an array of winter activities on offer, Killington promises fun for the whole family.
First up Killington will host the Winter Dew Tour this month with top athletes from around the world competing in slopestyle and superpipe disciplines for the coveted Dew Cup and a total of $1.5 million in prize money. The only East Coast host of the tour, Killington will hold the four-day event on Bear Mountain from January 19th to the 22nd where for the fourth season the best of the best will compete in both snowboarding and freeskiing events. The tour, which began in Breckenridge, Colorado, will conclude in February with an award ceremony in Ogden, Utah.
Afterward Killington plays host to the K-Town Showdown Series with rail jam and slopestyle events open to both skiers and riders of all ages and tons of prizes for the taking. Check out the dates and get all the info here.
Come March Killington will be alive with the sound of the Burton Mountain Festival. An all-new experience, the Festival offers a full day of free entertainment including live music, giveaways, mini parks for the smallest snowboarders, and an amateur snowboard contest held at The Stash with a total cash prize of $7,000. As one of only three East Coast stops, the day is an excellent opportunity for kids to try out snowboarding for free and for moms and dads in the market to test-drive the entire Burton 2012 hardgoods line at no charge. Over at Burton Riglet Park kids as young as three can borrow snowboards, boots and bindings at no charge before they start shredding with the help of certified instructors who will guide them on mini-features like boxes, ramps and rails.
If you’re not a powder hound, stroll over to Killington’s all-new tubing park for an entirely different ride down the mountain (this time going down on your backside is correct form). Take a tube down this multi-lane course serviced by a lift. Open weekends and peek weekdays.
And for those who want to combine a little R&R with a full roster of outdoor activity (or you realize skiing in your thirties is nothing like skiing in your twenties), the Killington Grand Spa awaits. With a full menu of services from deep tissue massage to pedicures, the spa will have you up, revitalized and walking again.
Of course, as the consummate resort Killington offers lessons tailored to burgeoning snow bunnies of every age and daycare for those not yet ready to tackle the mountain. The ski resort also has a number of package deals available for mid-week and week-long stays as well as a Presidents Week Bash offering four and six day packages. You, though, may not be in need of such a deal if you are the winner of this exceptional give-away. So suit up, sign up and tame the Beast of the East.
To enter tell us your kid’s, or your, favorite thing about skiing in comments. My kids’ favorite things are the Chocolate Waffles. It has nothing to do with skiing, but you can find it on the mountain, and it is the perfect antidote for any tired, cranky, frozen little ski bunny and is a delectable bribe. One person who replies to this post by 11:59 pm EST on Saturday, January 14, 2012 will be chosen at random to receive a four pack of lift tickets to Killington. Please post only once.
