Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Killington becoming uphill friendly Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) Author Posts January 9, 2014 at 8:15 pm #579489 kwm13 26 Posts Just saw this article on Boston.com http://www.boston.com/ae/radio/edging_the_xtreme/2014/01/killington_-_natural_woods_are.html. It talks about 745 acres of Natural Woods Areas of the mountain that is now going to be accessable for riders and skiers. This link is also in the article http://www.killington.com/winter/mountain/mountain_info/uphill_travel. While the article says that policy is officially called the free uphill travel pass Killington’s website says there is a 20 dollar fee for a season uphill pass and that it must be carried with you at all times. Even if it costs a few bucks it is nice to see more places allowing people to earn their turns. Now if it would just stay cold and snow.

I’d rather hike there, especially on a Tuesday or Wednesday when they’re closed.

The route is nicely posted and the mountain personnel were very friendly when I used it (in the past it was hit or miss). Pico is the way to go for a powder morning before the lifts are running.
