Killington Ski Resort Overview

Nicknamed "The Beast of the East" for its 1,509 skiable acres and expansive network of distinct base areas, Killington Ski Resort is heralded as one of the East Coast’s best ski destinations. So, exactly how big is Killington? Killington Peak summit sits at 4,241 feet with a base elevation of 1,165 feet, giving it the largest vertical drop in New England. The mountain is home to an extensive trail system that spans six mountains, plus sister resort, Pico Mountain, that's just a 5-mile shuttle ride away. 

Killington's terrain is extremely diverse, ranging from gentle groomers and learning areas to steep mogul runs and gladed trails as well as some of the best terrain parks in the Northeast. Non-skiing guests can also enjoy a wide variety of winter adventures, including snowmobile tours, the Beast Coaster, bike rentals, scenic gondola rides, sleigh rides, snowshoe tours and a tubing park. 

Founded in 1958, Killington averages 250 inches of natrual snowfall a year and is complemented by a vast snowmaking system covering 600 acres. With 17 snowcats in action every night, you can find more than 40 miles of runs groomed on a nightly basis.
