With increasing public concern over the potential transmission of COVID-19, Killington Resort has decided that in the best interest of everyone, we will not be hosting the Vermont Brewers Festival on Saturday, March 21, 2020. While this was an extremely difficult decision to make, we are in complete support and committed to the health and safety of our attendees, brewers, vendors, and staff and feel it best to err on the side of caution to ensure everyone’s health and well-being during this pandemic.
As a non-profit 501(c)6 our festival at Killington and our festival on the waterfront in Burlington are our annual fundraisers. The money raised from our events directly supports the brewing industry through marketing, education and advocacy for Vermont made beer. We are extremely heavy hearted to not be celebrating Vermont beer with all of you next weekend. If you are a ticket holder, please visit our website for more information www.vermontbrewers.com/…/vermont-brewers-festi…/get-tickets/
Thank you for your support of our brewing industry in Vermont. We encourage everyone to take good care of themselves and be responsible for their health and the health of those around them. Be well, be smart, and in the meantime, Drink Vermont Beer. See you at our summer fest on July 17 and 18 on the waterfront in Burlington. Cheers! ... See MoreSee Less

We can support one another in many ways as we get through these weeks of change and disruption. One way we can help is by grabbing your old or new ski goggles and donating them to our frontline medical professionals in the fight against the virus. Check it out.

Uphill access is currently CLOSED on all portions of Mount Snow's property until further notice. The conditions are simply unsafe for skiers, riders, those sledding and first responders. Thank you for respecting all posted closures. ... See MoreSee Less
Went to skin up today and saw the signs. Bummed but totally understand and now I guess I will just have to look forward to the Snow melting ( wierd concept) so we can hike up. Thanks for keeping it open as long as you did and sorry it could not go longer.
Thanks for a great season, Mt Snow. See you for mountain biking!
What's the over-under on the number of people who will think those signs don't apply to them?
Love Mount Snow!
Can they do that, being that it's federal land. Just a thought.
What about hiking and snowshoeing?
Good call!!!! 🤘🤘🤘
The best time of the season has been stolen from us. It’s depressing but I totally get it. I feel horrible for all the businesses we all support and depend on us to be there. Stay strong, stay positive, we will be back in full force to support you guys once the restrictions are lifted
COVID-19 Update: Okemo Mountain Resort, and the rest of our North American resorts, will remain closed for the 2019-20 ski season, due to the fast-moving situation involving COVID-19. This was not an easy decision to make, and we deeply considered the extended impact it will have on our guests, employees, communities, and the entire Okemo family. While it’s disappointing for all of us, we know it is the responsible thing to do at this time. Thanks to all guests for a great ski season and your continued support during these unprecedented times. We will consider reopening our sister resorts Breckenridge, Whistler Blackcomb and Heavenly in late April/early May, dependent on the situation with COVID-19 as well as weather conditions. We will be offering refunds and credits on lift tickets, lodging, ski and ride school and more. We urge guests to use this online form: www.snow.com/info/refund-request-form... See MoreSee Less
Okemo did the best they could with challenging conditions . Thank you .
However I thought I would automatically receive credit for the Buddy Passes I bought this Saturday for Sunday and Monday ? I have to use a form ?
And hoping you will extend the time limit to buy next years’ epic pass . It is terribly confusing and has lots of changes so , for many Seniors , needs to be done in person .
Even though the season was cut short, you did an amazing job, and I Iook forward to the 20-21 season.
Still, it was a great season. Okemo is the best.
for those of us w seasonal lockers, when will the base be open so we can rescue our stuff ?
In spite of these necessary early closings, we had a wonderful ski season. See you again in November/December 2020. ⛷☃️🥰
It’s the right decision, but sorry to hear it, it was a great season!
Thank you everyone for a great ski ⛷ and ride 🏂 season!!
See you next season Okemo Mountain.
Take care of all your Okemo employees.
What about passholders? The season already started too late and was scheduled to end too early. The mountain wasn't really fully opened until mid-February and now it closed by mid-March. I do not feel I got the value I paid for the pass. I even paid insurance for the pass. I expect either partial reimbursement or a loyalty discount should I decide to buy the next year's pass. I am local, socially isolated, uninfected, and I paid for lifts to be turning. This is my only passion. I even have a punch card still not fully used at the Spring House. I am sorry.
Thank you Okemo for a great year
The right move. Too bad Waterville and Gunstock aren’t responsible enough to take the same action.
Thanks for a great season Okemo! Stay Healthy everyone. #RideHighVT
As a partner to a lift maintenance worker at Okemo, I really appreciate you helping to keep not only my family safe but the community on a whole.
School kids need to get their ski equipment back. How shall this happen? I’m sad he didn’t get to use the remainder but I get it.
It’s a sad day, as I haven’t skied yet this season, was waiting for April. You’re doing the right thing and I look forward to next season. ❤️
I submitted the form and sent and email and haven't received a response yet.
Why do you have a hold on my refund the bank says its you who needs to release my money. You took it in a second give it back its been 3 days i need the money bad to feed my family!!!
Thank you for a great season. 💙
Thanks Okemo for a wonderful season!
Sad but good. See you next season!!
Can you turn on the mountain cams so we may look at the view from the mountain?
To Okemo Mountain - we have the Epic Local Pass and just got back from a wonderful trip to Park City, The Canyons and Snow Basin but our home mountain is Okemo. Was wondering since we bought insurance for our passes, would there be a pro rated credit made available? Thanks so much. Okemo - the BEST!!!!!!!!
Uphill travel at Smugglers’ Notch Resort is now closed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Following similar closures at all ski areas, we are concerned that allowing this activity will result in a level of participation that is not consistent with guidelines from the Vermont Dept. of Health and the Stay at Home order from Governor Scott. Additionally, eliminating risk is crucial to keeping our local rescue agencies available and safe during this crisis. With the peak of the COVID-19 crisis still ahead, we believe that discontinuing uphill access is the only responsible course we can take for our community.
Currently, there are no on-mountain services, rescue, or grooming operations. Surface conditions may change at any time. Sledding and motorized vehicles (including snowmobiles) are not permitted on any trails at Smugglers’ Notch Resort.
Uphill access is currently CLOSED on all portions of Stowe Mountain Resort until further notice. We understand the impact this has on our community of outdoor enthusiasts, but without ski patrol and terrain maintenance, it is unsafe for skiers and riders, those sledding, and first responders. Thank you for respecting all posted closures. Your safety and the safety of our community is our top priority. Please stay safe and healthy. #stowemt... See MoreSee Less
Since people apparently are incapable of making decisions that are not entitled and selfish and that endanger others, this needed to happen. Thank you.
Can you explain how it is that you (as a company) can close State Forest land when you are not operating the lifts? I know Spruce is privately owned. Not that I'm going up there, just wondering.
If you’re closing because people can’t practice the social distancing rules, and I think we have all seen plenty of people who can’t, then say it please. This has been a huge issue at the mountain. Plenty of people go alone and keep their safe distance from others, plenty of people don’t do this at all.
Take the groomers and tear up the trail surface as an extra disincentive. We’re not going to see any ski areas in North America reopening this Spring!
Shame on you for not being closed entirely given the circumstances. Rather irresponsible to even give ppl the option to not follow safe distancing protocols.
It's unfortunate that it had to come to this, but I think it's the right call. Stay safe, everyone. The more precautions we take sooner, the shorter the pain will be.
Since the closures, we’ve (Lodge Security) had people poaching the Big Spruce lot up by MMSC....partying, grilling, gathering. We tried closing off the lot, but then people would either move the cones and signs or park up and down the entire road. I’m glad this has happened, maybe people will stop gathering like that and stay home!
Is the state forest closed?
I didn’t see any notice of this from the governor.
Thanks Stowe for keeping our community safe.
Respect! Keep our first responders safe and don’t welcome potentially dangerous situations.
I would imagine ski resorts world wide are closed think 2021
Mount Mansfield is a state Forrest I am not sure you can close it
Probably a good decision to be honest.. people were not being safe.
Please reactivate the Stowe webcam‼️⛷
I hope this doesn't mean lift tickets are gonna be $400 a day next season.

After reviewing the footage Win, your son may have a case, though I think you would have covered the last few feet on your own without the kind assistance from Dave. Always one of the most fun events of the year.
