Two large scale summer expansions are being opened early this summer at the 'Beast of the East' and the 'B-East.'
At Killington, a ropes course and Soaring Eagle ride opened in the Snowshed complex on Friday, June 26. A new mountain coaster, also located at Snowshed, is expected to open by late July. Long established mountain biking, scenic lift ride, and golf operations continue.
At Berkshire East, the Thunder Mountain Bike Park is set to open on Wednesday, July 1. Designed by Gravity Logic of Whistler, British Columbia, the lift served downhill biking complex will feature trails for all abilities, as well as bike rentals. The complex may be considered as a venue for the Boston 2024 Summer Olympics bid.
Earlier in 2015, Berkshire East debuted its newly acquired rafting business. Previously established zip lining and mountain coaster operations continue.
