Killington Ski Resort in Vermont and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. The ski and snowboard area is located near the town of Killington, Vermont. Killington Ski Resort was the vision of several individuals and on Dec 13, 1958 this dream was realized when a mountain facility started to operate on Killington Peak, which is the 2nd highest peak in the state of Vermont. The Ski Resort has grown from humble beginnings into a well-known mountain area with a reputation of generally being the first to open for the season and the last to close, thus allowing Killington Ski Resort the longest ski/snowboard season in the Eastern United States. At Killington Ski Resort you can expect your time on the slopes to be amazing, and if après ski is in your plans, you’ll be suitably impressed with the famous Killington Road and the entertainment choices available. The quantity and layout of the lift system at Killington is second to none. It offers the most expansive lift network in the East with an uphill capacity of over 37,500 passengers per hour allowing skiers and boarders quick access to all that is offered.

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know…before the snow.

On the Slopes

  • Killington Mountain Resort is a total of six peaks and mountains that provide a diversity of terrain that winter enthusiasts have embraced season after season. The mountain has something for everyone, whether you are a first timer or have been on the slopes for years. Choose from wide-open groomed cruisers; narrow classic runs, moguls, steeps and gladed skiing areas. Make sure you study the trail map and plot your day on the slopes.
  • Killington Mountain Resort takes extra measures to ensure that the best possible conditions will be available for all guests. This includes having approximately 1700 snow guns covering 70% of the mountain to help where Mother Nature fails from time to time.
  • The K1 gondola will transport skiers/snowboarders to the summit at Killington Peak where everyone will enjoy the scenic views and then challenge the expert terrain on such runs as Double Dipper, Cascade and Escapade.

Off the Slopes

  • Killington is a place for families to enjoy quality time together whether on or off the slopes. Off-mountain activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice-skating, and the always-popular tubing area that is sure to bring smiles.
  • To showcase more of the size of this area, Killington Mountain Resort has five base areas that do offer parking for your convenience or stop in one of the daylodges for that well deserved break. The base areas include, K1, Snowshed, Ramshead, Bear Mountain, and Skyeship.
  • If you want accommodation, shopping, dining or just a place to relax, the ever-popular Killington Road has everything to help fill that day away from the slopes. With more than 100 restaurants and bars and lots of shopping options there is something for everyone.
