    Killington opened December 13, 1958 with 2 Pomalifts on Snowdon Mountain, while construction continued on 2 other Pomalifts during the winter. Four Pomas were opperating by the end of the season: 3 on Snowdon Mountain and one in the Glades near the summit of Killington Peak. The base lodge was an old CCC hut with an outhouse beside it and a converted chicken coop served as a ticket booth.
