Old School Ski Charm Nick Laver, Product Manager

"Killington is the East’s biggest ski resort and offers amazing terrain for all levels: great long, wide green trails perfect for learning, lots of wicked blue cruisers and a host of unfeasibly tricky double black diamond bump runs. I love Killington – it’s unpretentious, is much bigger than you’d expect, the snow is guaranteed, the trails are long, and whilst the après-ski rocks it’s also a great family destination. "

Skiing in Killington

Killington has the most extensive snowmaking facilities in the world, 1,850 snow cannons cover the mountains in a blanket of white, should the skies fail to provide. There are six peaks at Killington and one at nearby Pico, contributing to the total area of 1,152 acres.

All the mountains have more gentle angles than one has come to expect in most ski areas. The summits are rounded, meaning that a lot of the flatter terrain is to be found up top. This is a bonus for beginners who can enjoy panoramic views along with the upper echelons of ski hierarchy. High Traverse, Great Northern and Home Run, are green trails at the summit of Killington Peak, accessed by the K1-Express Gondola. Beginners and small children could all happily pootle down these runs. There are also a huge variety of intermediate trails, from wide-open cruisers to trees and bumps - you will be well entertained.

The 5 day Learn to Ski or Ride programme developed by Killington Ski School is superb for those who have never dabbled in the black art of snowboarding or experienced the thrill of attaching moulded plastic to their feet. The approach here is unique and comprehensive, sensibly the programme begins with a clinic introducing you to the bewildering equipment. It then proceeds with the same care and attention until you become a proud intermediate.

Jake Burton and the Burton Team have teamed up with Killington and four other resorts worldwide to create the ultimate natural terrain park environment: The Stash. Taking advantage of natural terrain, local trees and all the creative elements the mountain has to offer, The Stash will take your park riding to the next level.

We offer a full range of discounted Killington lift tickets, ski & snowboard rentals and snow school lessons and we always recommend you book early for our very best prices.
