Travel Go Purgatory Winter 2016 Main Photo 1
A new owner’s passion for the sport marks an exciting change for a beautiful San Juan ski resort.

The Rolling stones echo off the lift towers and snow guns, bouncing off the mountain in front of me, making the bass even more powerful. While Jagger isn’t on stage, the cover band playing outside at the base of Purgatory’s main lift is impressive, and it shows no signs of stopping in the below-freezing temps. While I can barely account for the contents of my own gloves, their bare fingers fly across fret boards and nimbly pick out rockin’ solos, guitar amps screaming through the cold winter air. Is this good for my ears? Absolutely not.

Killington’s claim on first-to-open status in the East appears to be safe for another year. Its lifts, which operated through Memorial Day last spring despite what is now widely considered the worst winter ever in New England, will begin spinning again on Tuesday, the resort announced late Monday night following a five-inch snowfall over the weekend.

The first day of operation will be reserved for passholders—a special treat for the most loyal customers. Starting Wednesday, the general public is welcome.
