Ski Killington Mountain
Killington Mountain is the biggest and most popular draw that brings in thousands of tourists each year. This beautiful mountain features the ideal winter sport conditions with fluffy snow and perfectly maintained trails. If you have not skied down Killington Mountain, you are in for a treat! Get comfortable on the bunny slopes before you take on the more difficult black diamond slopes. Newcomers can get comfortable on a board or skis by taking an introductory lesson. You can also grab all of your gear right on the mountain with rental shops that offer top of the line rentals and gear to purchase. Come see why thousands of people spend their first trip of the year on the mountain!
Killington Adventure Center

The Adventure Center includes activities such as a rope course, zip line course, roller coaster, rock climbing, and more. Some activities may not be available depending how early in the spring you make your trip. You only have to pay for the rides you go on. Make sure you do not miss out on the Killington Adventure Center.
Get out and explore the surrounding Killington area with a thrilling snowmobile tour.

Living in Vermont has taught us to appreciate the simple things in life—things such as warm gloves that allow you to text without having to take them off, electric heat (fires are romantic and wonderful, but limited in the areas they can heat!), and the ability to take off work early in the midst of winter and hit the slopes for a few hours of fun! All of this is yours to discover when you visit, but to help you get to know our favorite place on Earth a little better, we are providing this list of fun Killington facts!
We are Passionate About the Important Things
Our residents have voted to secede from the state of Vermont due to tax inequities; it may never happen, but we believe in fighting to keep our state wonderful for important guests like you! It doesn’t change the way we feel about the beauty of the rugged landscape that makes our town so special, and once you visit, you will understand why that is!
We Appreciate a Good Bottle of Wine
There’s quite a few vineyards in the area, and every summer in July we host the Killington Wine Festival, allowing residents and visitors the opportunity to sample the best of the best. If you don’t happen to visit during this time, never fear: Our Killington Express Shuttle offers a custom tour of the wineries in the area!
One of Our Favorite Killington Facts is We Love Artists
The beauty of Killington attracts world-class artists from all over, but you don’t have to be a superstar for us to appreciate you. The Art Garage offers paint and sip classes for adults and cool classes for kids to express themselves.
Beer is Our Friend
Long Trail Brewing Company is located in nearby Bridgewater Corners, making their beer a local favorite! Over 180,000 bottles of this German-inspired brew are consumed in Killington every year; make sure you purchase a bottle or two yourself and check out what all the fuss is about!
We Get a LOT of Snow
We average about 250 inches of snow every year, and this is all Mother Nature; we’re not including the manmade stuff! This is why we are home to one of the top ski resorts in the state. Killington Peak is where the action is, with over 71 miles of trails for skiing!
