Killington’s hidden extreme gem is Bear Mountain’s Devil’s Fiddle, a double black diamond trail with rocks, cliffs, and its own natural terrain features, which will see increased snowmaking and operation of its own quad chair. In addition, new tree skiing will be added at Bear Mountain and denoted as designated tree skiing areas on the trail map. The Timberline terrain park at Rams Head will also receive upgrades, tripling in length and a quarter-pipe will be added.
As of Summer 2004, Killington has initiated a $2 million snowmaking system upgrade, which includes 15,000 feet of snowmaking pipe. Areas that have seen improvement are specifically, South Ridge and the lower mountain surrounding Killington, Rams Head and Snowshed base areas. When completed in its entirety, the upgrades will provide increased efficiency and effectiveness of the resort’s snowmaking system, the most extensive system in North America.
