Killington vacation rentals

Discovering Killington’s slopes

Blessed with an alpine climate and a stunning mountain-nestled location, the Vermont village of Killington is the fitting home of one of the country's most famous ski resorts, commonly known as "The Beast of the East." The formidable Killington Ski Resort draws skiers from all over, keen to test their mettle on the thrilling slopes of the Green Mountains, meaning that there's a healthy supply of Killington vacation rentals to accommodate visitors. It's not all about the snow, either; you'll also find activity programs and hiking trails to keep you busy off the slopes, not to mention a host of restaurants and bars that provide off-piste entertainment after sunset.

Peak season in Killington

The area's best known for skiing, but those who book a Killington vacation rental will also get the chance to explore the majestic peaks in a variety of other ways. Depending on the season, the ski resort offers snow-tubing, snowmobile, and even sleigh-ride excursions. Summer visitors will note how the complex is fast becoming a major center for cycling, recently expanding its mountain-bike park to encompass over 30 trails. At the end of an eventful day, be sure to check out the thriving après-ski scene before heading back to your Killington vacation rental for a well-earned rest.

Snow place like Killington

The town of Killington has become synonymous with the Killington Ski Resort, which is the biggest in the region and proudly boasts the largest vertical drop in New England, at a whopping 3,050 feet. A season pass grants you access to multiple mountain areas, each with their own terrains and challenges. For seasoned skiers, there are plenty of steep slopes, as well as a number of trails that cater to cross-country fans; first-timers and kids aren't forgotten about either, with nearly a third of runs suitable for beginners, and a range of youth skiing programs available too.

Killington—a year-round destination

Thanks to abundant snowfall and powerful snow-making technology, winter season in Killington Ski Resort generally kicks off in October and runs until May, and the complex is busiest at this time. You'll have a bigger selection of Killington vacation rentals after March, and there'll also be shorter queues and fewer skiers to dodge on the slopes—just bear in mind that the resort's hours of operation are more limited. Come June, the season ends as temperatures rise; check out the facility's summertime programs to make the most of these balmier conditions.

Follow the Killington trail

Tired yourself out on the slopes? It might be time to get reacquainted with nature and soak up the stunning panoramas of the Green Mountains on a scenic gondola ride around the ski resort. Fans of hiking who want to escape the high altitudes can also check out the Long Trail, the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the country, which passes by the town of Killington as it runs the length of Vermont. The Pico Peak trail takes you through some of Vermont’s most picturesque woodland, soundtracked by the gentle noise of 4 babbling brooks.
