Killington Activities

Winter Activities:

Killington offers more mountains than you can ski in a week! With seven mountains, including Pico, Killington is bigger than anything you’ll experience in the East – 11 miles from border to border.

But being bigger isn’t the only factor that allows Killington to stand out & above what other resorts offer. Their seven peaks are big, the highest lift serviced skiing & greatest vertical in New England, at 3,150’, but they aren’t just for the experts in your crowd. Sure they’ve got 200 trails that include knee-buckling bump runs, and breath-grabbing steeps and cruisers, like favorites Downdraft, Ovation, & of course Outer Limits, the steepest mogul slope in New England. They also offer beginner and intermediate routes down from each of their resort peaks, with views of 5 states and Canada, including their 6.6 mile Juggernaut trail that’s the longest in the east.

Summer and Fall Activities:

With flowing streams, hidden waterfalls, secluded lakes, quaint villages, breathtaking views, covered bridges, green hills and cool breezes, the Vermont summer seems endless.

The Killington Region has many unique areas to hike and explore, with trails for all ages and levels. If you prefer biking you can tour the region along country roads, scenic Rt 100, or ride Killington’s mountain trails.
