KILLINGTON RESORT, VT
We are the snowmaking crew at Killington Resort. We have 44 snowmakers on our team. The perfect forecast for making snow is 10 degrees with light northwest wind and low humidity. We have a combined 386 years of snowmaking experience. If you opened the break room fridge, you would see, yogurt, cold steak, mayonnaise, peanut butter, jelly & bread. The motto of our snowmaking team is, ‘if you can’t max it out, go home now.’ If snowmaking was a professional sport, our team name would be, The Water Hogs. The percentage of people on our crew who ski or ride is, 65% ski and 35% do not ski. If we threw a snowmaker’s party, cold beer and rare steak would be on the dinner menu. The 5 key items we always bring on a gun run are: channel locks tuned right up, turbo torch, striker, hose gaskets and water to drink. Our crew keeps coming back year after year to make snow because there is no better job than making snow. Every day or night is a challenge that must be conquered, and we do it for the creativity in our souls and so our guests have the best snow and the most runs.
