When planning a much-needed vacation, some folks want the calm, peaceful leisure of warm sand and an ocean breeze. Others, however, crave the thrill of outdoor recreation – they want to see their feet leave the ground, watch the world whiz by, and feel the wind in their hair. If you prefer the latter, then a trip to Killington Ski Resort in Vermont is for you!
Check out the Killington Ski Resort
With four beautiful seasons and activities that will excite the entire family, Killington Mountain provides a getaway that is both relaxing and stimulating any time of year. Here are some ways that you can get the most out of a Killington Ski Resort visit.
While the resort provides guests with fantastic vacations all year long, the true character of Killington Mountain shines through in winter months. During this time, guests have an endless list of activities to choose from including snow tubing, snowshoe tours, scenic gondola rides, and sleigh rides. Guests can also try fat biking, where they can ride a bicycle with wide snow tires that provide stability on snow-covered terrain, or snowboard and ski through 73 miles of thrilling trails. Bundle up, because visiting Killington in the winter will be an experience you’ll never forget.
If you can’t make it to Killington during the colder months, the mountain still has tons of things to do in the summer. Their Adventure Center offers everything from roller coasters and ropes courses to ATV mountain tours and scenic lift rides. The kids will love trying out SkyeJump, where they can bounce and flip on a trampoline bungee system, or they can challenge their family and friends to escape the 5,000 square-foot Terra-Maze. The mild Vermont weather and incredible panoramic views make for an amazing summer day on the mountain.
After a fun day spent building up an appetite, there are plenty of delicious dining options to choose from at Killington Ski Resort. Food courts are located at every base lodge and are the perfect place to warm up after a great run. They have everything from burgers and pizza to fresh fruit and hot chili, and of course, decadent hot chocolate. Other signature locations include the Clubhouse Bar & Grill for a casual dining experience at the Killington Golf Course, and Peak Lodge for local farm-fresh food and daily specials. Whatever you choose, your stomach will thank you!
For even more mountain fun, Killington Ski Resort offers multiple events throughout the year that attract visitors far and wide. On September 19th and 20th, guests are invited to compete in the famous Spartan Race, where they can sprint down steep slopes, through muddy waters, and over huge hills on a challenging course. Or, if you’re in the mood to unwind, check out Killington Brewfest on October 20th for live music, fabulous food, and over 100 of the best craft beers in the region. A variety of annual events and activities will have you and your family wanting to come back again next year.
