K-1 Gondola to Killington Peak
From the K-1 Base Lodge, the 8 person K-1 Gondola delivers you to Killington Peak. Conditions permitting, expert skiers and riders may choose to walk up a stairway on the right, and along a narrow trail in order to access Catwalk. Or exit the Gondola and walk back toward the Killington Peak Lodge to start out at the top of Cascade. However, most will start out at the top of Great Northern, a wide trail that exits the set-up area, and turns sharply to the left before narrowing considerably. After turning the corner, a variety of offshoot trail options present themselves.
These options are listed below according to difficulty, as well as where the various trails lead:
During the early part of the season, before a sufficient snow base develops all the way back to the K-1 Base Lodge, the K-1 Gondola provides initial access for experts only to Killington Peak. The upper trails: Rime, Reason and upper East Fall are open, as well as a terrain park on upper Reason, and serviced by the North Ridge Triple. When you're done, or want to return to the Base Lodge, a stairway from the top of the North Ridge Triple leads back to the K-1 Gondola for downloading back to the Base Lodge.
