Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard destination in Eastern North America and a POWDR resort, announced today that tickets for the 2019 HomeLight Killington Cup will be available for purchase starting Wednesday, August 21 at 9:00 a.m. ET at killington.com. Taking place November 29-December 1, the World Cup will once again bring the women’s giant slalom and slalom races to Vermont and is expected to attract U.S. Ski Team superstar Mikaela Shiffrin to compete against the best women’s technical alpine skiers in the world.
“Killington and the entire community is eager to welcome back world class alpine skiing for the fourth consecutive year. We’ll once again offer free-access viewing areas so the thrill of alpine ski racing can be enjoyed by all and everyone can be inspired by these amazing athletes, especially the next generation of alpine ski racers,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “Over the years, the community’s support has helped us showcase Killington and the state of Vermont to the international ski audience, and we look forward to displaying ‘winter in its original state’ once again on Thanksgiving Weekend.”
Killington Resort will host free concerts throughout the event, in addition to an already action-packed, fun-filled weekend. Other entertainment includes the World Cup Festival Village, fireworks, athlete parades and the Friday night bib draw featuring top athletes.
“It’s exciting to welcome the best women ski racers in the world back to Killington, especially coming off of such an incredible winter season. It was only two months ago, on June 2, that Killington’s ski season ended,” says Herwig Demschar, chair of Killington’s World Cup Local Organizing Committee. “Now, were talking about snowmaking as the resort prepares the Superstar course for another World Cup. Guests joining us for the World Cup weekend will experience Killington as they never have before with world-class racing, live music, autograph signings, fireworks and more – creating a weekend in the mountains not to be missed.”
