Killington is truly well-suited for every type of skier, making it a great destination for families or large groups. With nearly 40 percent of the terrain designated “expert,” aggressive skiers and boarders have their pick from some of the steepest stuff in the East, plus plenty of bump runs to choose from. Intermediates also have their pick of Killington’s expansive cruisers, with 33 percent of the terrain labeled blue. And while beginners hold the minority, at 28 percent, Killington’s beginner slopes have seen more people learn to ski than any other resort in the U.S.
Freestylers will be pleased with Bear Mountain’s terrain park offerings. The nationally renowned park provides freeskiers and riders with plenty of features for jibbing and jumping, including The Stash and the 430-foot-long Superpipe with 18-foot walls.
Excellent, Great variety of terrainThis is the first time for us skiing at an Eastern ski resort. I was extremely please with the resort. We flew into Manchester and drove to White River Junction that evening. In the morning it was less than an hour to Killington. The ski rental and lift tickets are located at the same place so getting everything was easy and in no time we were on the mountain. We had beginner and expert levels with us so everyone found terrain that they liked. It is a bit different having all the restaurants located at the base, but it did not make. The only area that was problematic was the K-1 lodge. If you came from either the snowshed or Ramshead side, you had to take off you skis and walk. It snnowed the day before we arrived and all lifts and runs were open. The snow was in good condition even at the end of the day. Mountain side ski storage was included and we used that. We used the bus system to get to our condo (Pinnacle) and that worked well also. I woudl definitely go back. There is a great assortment of eateries around the base area and the non-skier with us had plenty of things to do in the area.
