Killington for Year-Round Outdoor Enjoyment

Rutland is home to Killington, Vermont’s largest and most popular ski resort.  Killington Mountain typically enjoys over 250 inches of snow in winter. Seven mountains make up the  Killington/Pico Ski Resort. Skiers and snowboarders appreciate the choice of wide-open groomed cruisers, narrow classic New England runs, moguls, glades and stashes, all serviced by 22 lifts to keep you moving. The Resort offers several terrain features for snowboarders and freeskiers in 6 terrain parks, which includes The Stash by Burton, an all-natural terrain park with over 50 features, as well as a 500-foot long half pipe with huge 18-foot walls.

Killington is always host to a jam-packed schedule of bands, festivals, and competitions. There’s plenty to do off- mountain including snowmobile tours, dog sledding, snow tubing, sleigh rides, cross-country skiing, spas and snowshoeing.

Killington features 45 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, providing outdoor enthusiasts with what they crave with trails for all ages and any skill level, yielding fantastic panoramic views, beautiful foliage, varied wildlife, fresh air and exercise.
