Logo   Killington Ski Resort, Vermont
One of the best-managed ski areas, with good snow-making, variety of trails, ski school, lots of parking, quick food service or a nice restaurant, several bars, and a long ski season.




Killington Ski Resort is big!

From the summit (4241 feet, 1293 meters), the vertical drop is over 3,000 feet (920 meters)—the longest among New England ski resorts.

There are 200 ski trails, 250 inches (635 cm) of natural snow annually, and 1850 snow guns to generate more snow if nature disappoints.

To get you up the mountain there are a dozen quad lifts (six of them high-speed express), six triple lifts, four double lifts, nine surface lifts including two Magic Carpets, and two high-speed, heated express gondolas, all with a total capacity of 52,000 skiers per hour.

If that sounds like a mob scene, I must admit that it does get crowded, but also that it's a big mountain, well managed, and there does seem to be room for everyone.

Dozens of hotels and inns are available for lodging. More...

If you don't choose a ski package plan which includes room, meals, and lift tickets, Killington Resort has various packages just for the slopes, including special rates on lifts for two to seven days, or plans with which you get lifts and lessons for two to seven days at reduced rates, or all three—lifts, lessons, and equipment rentals—for one price.

At nearby Pico Mountain (pronounced "pie-ko"), the emphasis is on family skiing fun, with a 1967-foot vertical drop, 50 ski trails, and a variety of lifts. More...
