Killington

Ski Killington

Covering six mountains, Killington has earned its reputation as the “Beast of the East”.

Perfect for mixed abilities, New England’s largest resort is as popular as ever with our school groups. Boasting 155 trails, Killington’s huge diversity of terrain gives excellent scope for progression and its beginner programmes are superb. Even better, you can expect great snow all season, thanks to high annual snowfall and extensive snowmaking.

After a busy day skiing, re-energize with a waffle and Vermont’s much-loved sauce, maple syrup. Nearby Rutland is a hub of après-ski with discos, bowling, ice-skating and even ice-cream parties.

The huge ski domain spans six mountains, and mixed abilities can stick together with a range of graded trails running from the top of each lift.
