Killington


More people vacation at Killington than any other ski area in Vermont. The largest resort in the region, it has seven distinct peaks of varying degrees of difficulty. It features 200 trails, 31 lifts including two heated express, 8 passenger gondolas and 87 miles of skiing terrain. Killington Resort offers facilities for all styles of skiing. The various levels of freestyle terrain include early-season features on Reason, medium terrain features on Ramshead and large signature terrain on Bear Mountain.

Killington Resort’s easiest park, Easy Street, is located at Ramshead and its small ride on rails and boxes and mellow jumps and rollers is a great place for beginners. The next step up, after mastering rails, is Timberline, also on Ramshead, which offers many different approaches, lines and options. It features medium sized table tops, step ups and step downs, medium gap to rails, hips and a mid-season mini-pipe. Skiers and riders who have progressed from Timberline and are looking to ride the most advanced technical rails can now meet the challenge of Upper Wildfire at Bear Mountain, a large, advanced, high-end street style rail oriented park with a flat to down to flat down rail, 40-foot single bar and large c-box.

Experts will find plenty to challenge them here. Lower Wildfire at Bear Mountain is an advanced park featuring a mixture of technical rails and jumps geared towards slope style. Features include large table tops, large step downs and large hips, perfect for most advanced skiers and riders looking to go big. Killington’s hidden extreme gem is Bear Mountain’s Devil’s Fiddle, a double black diamond trail with rocks, cliffs, and its own natural terrain. Dreammaker is a more advanced medium sized park at Bear Mountain with berms, rolls, rails and jumps.

Life off the slopes is just as exciting, with a number of bars, restaurants and other fun places. The undisputed star of après-ski is Wobbly Barn where skiers throng after dark. Killington lodging stretches for miles into downtown Rutland, where you can find hotels of any category, apartments, condos and timeshares to suit your requirements.
