Helicopters and lift towers were flying over Killington Resort as the first phase of construction kicked off ahead of the 2018/19 winter season. The highly anticipated return of lift service in the South Ridge area is officially in progress as lift towers were relocated from Snowdon to South Ridge. A new 6-person high-speed bubble chairlift will be installed to replace the Snowdon Quad ahead of next season. The new lift, manufactured by Leitner-Poma, features a bubble shield that will protect skiers and riders from wind and weather as they ascend 1,100 vertical feet to the Snowdon Mountain peak
Additional enhancements will include significant upgrades to the K-1 Express Gondola, additional availability of intermediate trails, improvements to existing intermediate runs, and resort-wide infrastructure upgrades including the addition of hands-free lift access validation with RFID technology at both Killington and Pico.
