Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard resort in the East, is celebrating its 50th Birthday December 12-14 with numerous events and activities for the entire family, including a special commemorative 50th birthday medallion valid for a full weekend of skiing and riding.

To commemorate the founding of the resort on Dec. 13, 1958, Killington will offer 1,958 50th Birthday medallions valid for skiing and riding the weekend of Dec. 13-14. The $50 commemorative medallions will be available for purchase through Killington’s website beginning Nov. 14. In addition to skiing and riding, medallion holders will enjoy a variety of discount opportunities from Killington Chamber of Commerce members, preferred lift access and other resort benefits. Special 50th Birthday Ski and Stay Packages, including commemorative medallions, start at just $62 per person, per night.

“The entire weekend of events and activities will offer our guests an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful heritage and history of our resort,” said Chris Nyberg, Killington president and general manager. “There are many traditions that began and innovations that have taken place over the past 50 years here at Killington. From ski lift and snowmaking technology, to the ticket wicket and the Graduated Length Method of teaching, and we want to celebrate and honor those accomplishments and the folks that made it happen.”
