Killington ski resorts have been hit hard by the loss of their main resort, killington resort, and a number of other resort properties.
The ski resort is a popular resort for those who want to spend time on the slopes, and it’s also the site of several recent major storms, including the devastating 2015 storm that swept through the area.
The resort’s owners say the storm was particularly devastating because it brought so much snow to the area, causing some ski lifts to close, making it difficult for people to access the ski slopes for a time.
“Our main ski lift at Killington has been shut down for almost a week, it’s been a very hard time for the owners of the property,” Killington Mayor Dave Ladd told The Killington Echo.
“The snow has been so heavy that we have had to put our lifts in hibernation mode for several weeks, which has been very hard for us.”
Killington is also one of the few ski resorts in Australia that can still use the ski lift system.
“We have to go into hibernation because of the snow,” Ladd said.
“And we’re not sure how long it will last.”
The resort was closed for almost six months in the months leading up to the storm, with crews still removing the snow from the lifts and working to clear snowbanks from the slopes.
“We’ve had to bring in a crane to clear the snowbanks and we’ve had a lot of people who were on the lifts come back into the lifts, which was really difficult,” Lad said.
He said while the snow was still falling on the resort, the lifts were still operating normally.
“There’s still a lot left to do, but we are going to get through this, it will get better,” Latt said.
Killingtons management has hired the local firm of Blacksmiths, who are providing services to the owners, to remove the snow and restore the lifts.
“They’ve been very professional and we have to thank them for that,” Lass said.
The Blacksmith’s company have been hired to help the owners in their efforts to get the lifts back online.
