Vermont Business Journal On Saturday morning, Killington Resort fired up its snow cannons to make snow in preparation for the start of the ski season and the 2022 Women’s World Cup races taking place over Thanksgiving weekend.

Killington Resort will once again welcome the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Tour to Killington, Vermont on Thanksgiving weekend.

The first years of the event broke attendance records and sent a loud and clear message: Alpine ski racing is alive and well in the East! Action returns in 2022 with a stacked field of the world’s best female alpine skiers, including five-time Killington Cup winner Mikaela Shiffrin, skiing to defend her title, former University of Vermont skier Paula Moltzan and Burke Mountain graduate and Dartmouth student Nina O — Brian.

We’ll also see the revival of the Athlete Show and Friday Night Fireworks, as well as the all-new K-1 Lodge for fans to enjoy.
