These below reviews are stale. This is the first season for a new owner at Killington so I went up to give it a try. Killington is now owned by POWDR, the same company that owns and manages the resort at Park City, Utah. I have skied every mountain in NH and VT and this new owner has made significant improvements in the grooming (and that includes leaving some trails ungroomed) and overall management of the resort. The terrain parks at Killington are better than anywhere else I've skied this season and their snow making capacity is state of the art. With two 8-man gondolas and multiple high-speed quads on five consecutive mountains, the lift lines are never more than three or four minutes long - hardly a long wait no matter how long the line. The cost of the lift ticket is pretty much the same no matter where you go but lodging & food are cheaper at Killington than most places. ... And if you want to take a day on a nearly deserted big mountain with high speed lifts then PICO is amazing and 10-minutes away from the Killington base lodge (PICO is also now owned by POWDR). The only way for POWDR to make the Killington area better is to make it bigger and when they connect PICO to the Killington complex it will increase the area to six mountains and over 1400-aces of skiable terrain. See you on the mountain. Aloha.
