Skiing and Snowboarding at Killington

In the realm of skiing and snowboarding at Killington, where 190 trails await, a substantial portion blanketed by a robust snowmaking system, this winter wonderland caters to every stripe of snow aficionado. Beginners will find Snowshed to be one of the Northeast’s finest zones for honing their skills, with Ramshead’s extended green runs offering an excellent progression. Intermediate skiers can traverse the entire area, with recommendations for laps on the Snowdon Express 6-pack, and a tranquil descent down Solitude, just off the summit’s rear.

For those devoted to park skiing or riding, Killington’s offerings are unparalleled. Bear Mountain boasts an 18-foot superpipe, while the six terrain parks, when open, showcase a staggering 150 features.

Accommodation Options

Accommodations within the resort’s vicinity are available at the Snowshed base and at Sunrise, where ski-in-ski-out condominiums reign supreme. However, it’s worth noting that dining options and bars in this area are relatively scarce, particularly during the week, as most visitors flock in from Boston or New York for weekend escapades.

For a more vibrant dining and entertainment scene, many opt to stay in condos, lodges, or B&Bs along the 5km access road leading to the ski area from Highway 4. This region also boasts numerous dining establishments and bars. Frequent bus services link these locations, but having a vehicle on hand can simplify your exploration.
