It's the second annual "Snoe-down" event in Killington. It's not just about celebrating a solid ski season.
It's a soundtrack for skiers, a celebration of a strong season and a boost for the local economy.
" The economic impact for an event like this is huge we're looking at near packed capacity this weekend just because we're having all of this extra entertainment," said Seth Webb. He is the Director of the Economic Development and Tourism office in Killington.
It's the second annual snoe-down event in Killington and Rutland. Fifteen shows in four days and it's drawing a crowd. Organizers say lodging for this year's event has increased by more than 200 percent.
"People are coming from all over but even as far as Ohio and Pennsylvania we've heard today," Webb said.
Last year's event brought 5,000 people to the Killington area. Organizers say while the numbers aren't in with the amount of people here it looks promising.
While the harsh winter has many hoping for spring, in Killington they can never have too much snow.
"For us every snow flake is a penny," said Ray Rice of Killington.
Local business owners like Rice have seen the area through tough economic times he says he's relieved to see things picking back up.
"It was tough times for sure there were not a lot of businesses that were moving to Killington now people are opening new businesses here monthly and that's a significant change," Rice said.
"We've seen a noticeable change over the last year here in Killington and we're showing modest growth early on," Webb said.
Webb says this momentum carries the resort into spring, on a high note as they say goodbye to a season worth celebrating.
