Our rentals feature fully equipped kitchens, making cooking your own meals or making snacks and cocktails for a New Year’s gathering as easy as it would be at home.

More Ways to Bring in the New Year
There are more than enough ways to bring in the new year when you vacation to Killington. The New Year’s holiday is in the middle of the winter season, allowing you to enjoy the incredible activities Killington has to offer. It should come as no surprise that perhaps the most popular winter activity in Killington is skiing and snowboarding. Killington Mountain offers the best skiing conditions in the state, allowing you to experience a perfect day on the slopes during your stay. Getting started is as easy as visiting a local rental shop. Most shops in the area feature the best gear to rent or buy. If you are new to the sport, you can sign up for introductory lessons that will have you feeling comfortable on a board or pair of skis in no time. Once you are ready to take on Killington Mountain, visit one of the local resorts and purchase a ski lift pass to take you to the summit. The snow and trails are some of the best you can experience in all of New England.
If you want to explore more that Killington has to offer outdoors, make sure you reserve a snowmobile tour. These exciting tours are guided and take you across town and out into the wilderness. Naturally, you will want to dress warm, as the temperatures are quite chilly in January. If snowmobile tours are a little too fast for you, make sure you try cross country skiing. This allows you to explore the snow-covered terrain much easier than with a simple pair of boots.
Other great ways to spend your Killington New Year’s Eve include frequenting the local restaurants and pubs in the city. Football is still going strong around New Year’s, so catch all of the big games at The Lookout Tavern. You can find all kinds of drink specials, delicious pub food, and all the big games on the TVs. The Lookout Tavern is especially popular for the collegiate crowd who cheer on their alma mater every weekend. You can even enjoy some fine dining when staying in Killington. The Garlic is an upscale Italian restaurant that features a cozy interior. The menu consists of decadent Italian entrees and smaller tapas plates to share and enjoy. The martini bar can either shake up or stir up your favorite cocktails that especially delicious.
