The K1 gondola began spinning for season pass holders on Friday, and the biggest show in alpine racing will be back at the biggest hill in the East, with the return of the 2023 Women’s World Cup to Killington on Thanksgiving weekend!
Killington’s legendary Superstar trail will again be the site of the fastest female alpine skiers in the world as they compete for the top of the podium in both Slalom and Giant Slalom. 2023 presents a stacked field, including five-time Killington Cup victor Mikaela Shiffrin skiing to defend her title and A-team veteran and former University of Vermont skier Paula Moltzan.

More than just a race weekend, the Stifel Killington Cup is both a testament to and a celebration of the deep history and continued passion for alpine ski racing here in the Northeast. The first years of the event broke attendance records and sent a message loud and clear: alpine ski racing is alive and well in the East! The weekend is packed with entertainment, including the bib draw and fireworks display on Friday night (free to all and does not require a ticket), live music, and a vendor village on race days.
