Full review

I saw a review saying this was the best skiing in the East. No way. Stowe gets my vote for that. I've been to Killington at least half a dozen times, and I always get lost. It's that big. There are 6 mountains and somehow I always end up at the opposite one from where my car is parked. Keep a trail map in your pocket, and be aware that some lifts close and you could end up at a base lodge that's nowhere near your car at the end of the day. Rams Head Mountain is good for families and easy cruisers. Killington Mountain and Bear Mountain have the steep stuff. It's always crowded. It's usually icy. Gets skied off very quickly. It's expensive. It's a good party town. There's a couple gondolas. which are nice, but the terrain they service is either boringly flat and really crowded, or steep and icy, not a lot of middle ground. Overall worth a visit, but don't be thinking this is the best that there is in Vermont.
