Killington is big, and it boasts the longest ski season in Vermont opening as early as October and skiing till May - often Memorial Day. Killington opened first in the East 2016, on October 26! Killington is home to two high-speed heated gondolas, 12 quads and the world’s most extensive snowmaking system with 1,700 guns, 17 grooming cats and a pumping power of 12,000 gallons per minute of water.

Great variety of terrain in the Northeast. They have everything from long cruisers, to steeps, bumps, and woods. As close as you can get to Western mountain pitch in central Vermont. Killington also has a great apres environment with a number of bars, restaurants, and live... More

Killington is The Beast of the East! I am not a great mogul skier, so when I had the chance to go down both a groomed Superstar and Outer Limits my first time here I was hooked! Cannot wait to head to Killington again this season.

I selected this resort because it offered a great stay and ski deal. We did enjoy the skiing but were a little disappointed to find ourselves too often finding ourselves on boring long trails across the mountain. This was partly due to several runs being closed.

Our family has skiers in the entire spectrum of abilities. Killington has it all, and is very easy to get from one type of terrain to another.

We always go to Killington for the Superbowl and stay that week. The mountain is empty during the week. It may be a bit cold, but there are no lift lines :-)

While Killington's nightlife is definited more by an access road rather than a ski village, the nightlife rocks!
