    Nope, I think it was always to be completed for Xmas 2013. Last year was the first year without the summit lodge during the winter.

    Exactly. I thought that it was going to be complete by December 2012, but was pushed back one year.

    The issue with the new lodge at the top is that there is only one way to get to it - up K1.

    Well, in terms of construction I saw last year that they had fixed up the service road that runs from KBL along to the top of Snowshed, and then zig-zagging up near South Ridge and to the summit. So for the demo, they were running dump trucks pretty much non-stop from sun up to sunset and beyond trucking stuff down. The demo took most of last summer and I thought that the plan was to demo the building, do the site work, and then to put the foundation in place last year. Then came Irene......

    The other issue is the very short construction season and the weather that slowed it down.

    It was 2yrs. And it was suppose to be completed this Xmas. When was it knocked down last summer or the summer before? It seems like it has been down only one year though.

    I was talking about once it is completed and being used during ski season.

    KILLINGTON, Vt. (July 8, 2011) – Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest snow sports resort in the East with the most diverse terrain, continues to work on a number of summer capital projects to enhance the skier and rider experience for the 2011-12 season.The removal of the Peak Lodge from Killington Peak, the most anticipated project, is under way and the tear down process is scheduled to begin in the next couple of weeks. In preparation for the new building, several infrastructure projects will take place this summer including installation of new waste water line and fiber optic lines from the Peak to the K-1 Lodge. The new foundation is expected to be in place this fall and construction of the new facility will continue in the summer of 2012 with an anticipated completion date of Christmas 2012.

    Irene was a blessing. We got 2 new umbrella bars/deck + bathrooms at the bottom of Supe. That would've never happened otherwise.

    As for the peak lodge. I hope they see some reward from the millions spent. It's going to take awhile if ever to see.

    Oh yes, absolutely an issue in that it does have limited access. But IIRC they were going to market it for (very) high end weddings and conventions in the summer and off-season. Unfortunately expensive weddings are the only ones in Vermont these days. My wife and I only briefly looked at getting married in our home state (Vermont) and could not believe how absurd the prices were. We had a hell of a wedding on Mid-Coast Maine and got a much better bang for the buck.
