Ski Experience - Killington

You would consider 10 miles to be a fairly long run or a good, long ride on your bicycle. What would you say to a ski run at a virtually endless ski marathon of 54,000 feet? And all this atop 250 inches of marvelous dry Vermont powder, which is one of the deepest packs in the Northeastern United States!

Ski Levels

This truly mind boggling run can only be found at Killinton where experts will revel in the extreme levels of discipline and skill required to reach the bottom of Cascade, Downdraft, Ovation, Superstar, Outer Limits, Giant Killer, Skyelark, Bittersweet, Devil's Fiddle, Double Dipper, and Big Dipper Glade in one piece. Intermediates love the runs that are specially suited for mid level skills such as Fortyniner, Chute, Conclusion, Highline, Cruise Control, Caper, and Bunny Buster. Killington features Snowshed which is what could easily be the ultimate learner's area but watch out for hot dogs swooping through at Mach II. Bonanza over on Pico is much less trafficked and more isolated.

Killington’s advanced level Terrain Park is situated on Bear Mountain and features hits, rails and boxes on Bear Trap and Wildfire. Just when you thought that was more than challenging enough, you can then proceed onto the 425-foot-long superpipe with 18-foot walls. This park has two differently sized approaches, eight jumps, six rails, and plenty of exciting expert level features. Timberline Terrain Park, at Rams Head, is the intermediate's park with table tops, rails, hits and boxes that are appropriate for the skill level but still maintain that adrenalin level up.

The First Timer Package is great for kids or adults getting their first experience with skiing. The instructors will also provide master lessons for experienced and expert level skiers.

Après Ski

Killington has truly amazing restaurants right by the slopes. When you want to celebrate your promotion to Executive Vice President, take the whole family to Hemingway's, the Red Clover Inn, Maxwell's Restaurant at The Summit, or the Vermont Inn. It will cost as much as a new plasma TV to feed the gang but it will be worth it. If you're a little less extravagant with your dining budget, some excellent family friendly choices include Outback Pizza, Pizza Jerks, Johnny Boys Pancake House, Sun Up Bakery, and Wally's All American Diner which serves what could be the biggest and most affordable breakfast in New England.

The Killington area, like the rest of the astounding state of Vermont, is a wintertime paradise that needs to be experienced in all its snowy beauty, and one of the best ways to see the far backcountry is by renting a snowmobile from Killington Snowmobile Tours. They have hot sports models and bigger, more comfortable sleds if you want to give the kids a real thrilling ride through the meadows and valleys.
