Overview by Mitch Kaplan

It's difficult to say anything about Killington—because everything applies. This beast of the East is the region's largest resort, and it offers something for everyone. With the recent addition of neighboring Pico, there are now seven distinct peaks to explore. Not only can you find what you want, you can find it separated from other terrain. Experts flock to Bear Mountain, Skye Peak, and The Canyon. The Sky Peak Express, which replaced the old Sky Peak Quad in 2008 and reduced the ride time from 14 minutes to less than five, allows guests improved access to Bear Mountain and Killington’s long intermediate cruising trails. The novice area at Snowshed can get crowded, but it stands apart from speeding experts. Add on Pico, a superb mountain in itself, and you've got the complete picture.

Accommodations are good here, but Killington lodging stretches for miles into downtown Rutland. The resort is famous for attracting ski clubs and people sharing houses, which fosters a hard-charging party sensibility that is heartily reinforced by numerous bars strung along the access road.

For those of us who can't travel west to ski, Killington is the next best thing.Improvements have made ride and wait times a lot shorter.The snow conditions are always the best and the trails are always well groomed. Lodging is plentiful and the whole area is one big ski party.We have been there many times and have always had great times.
