Really BIG, Really Fun,Not Cheap 1/26/2009

I went to Killington skiing this january and had a blast. After trying other mountians I found killington to have the best snow due to the sun not hitting it all day. Theres tons of slopes including some great skiing in the woods. The terrain parks are by far THE BEST I""VE EVER SEEN! They have a new natural park with 5 plus jumps and boxes galore. It is a tad bit pricey but, worth the 15 bucks. Don't go skiing if your broke lift tickets run about 75+ and food is expensive. Night life was hard to find but the skiing was to good. Highly recomend for those who are above intermidate and for the new guys, it beats other mnts cuz you can go down easy slopes all day and not see the same stuff. Pros: Best on east coast,Tons of Trails Cons: Expensive,lack of night life more

Not all its cracked up to be.... 1/19/2006

My husband and I have never skiied out East prior to our recent trip to Killington, VT. We purchased a multi-day pass and when we got there we were told that the days were to be used consecutively. We purchasd a 5 day pass. Also, the ski/snow conditions were less than par. Perhaps if we had gone in March our tale would be different. As said by others, food here is very expensive and it also, it is very easy to get lost or on the 'wrong' trail as they are not marked very well. While we enjoyed our trip to Killington, we will not be returning any time in the near future. We are going to stick with skiing out West and/or in Europe. As a side note, if you have not skiied in Switzerland.....do so. Grindenwald is the bomb! Cons: expensive food, poorly marked trails more

Killington is the pits 12/15/2005

If you are a real skiier this resort is not for you, however if your into an overly large resort that caters mainly to inexperience skiiers and riders on vacation. This is not an area for hard core or better than average skiiers or riders, you will be frustrated by long lines, crappy service and inexperienced skiiers carving in front of you. Cons: Crowded , Bad Customer Service, Bad Parking more

Killington=<3 11/10/2005

I went with my school's ski club. It was probably one of the best time's of my life. Whether you're a beginner, Intermediate, or expert you can find the right slope for you. Skiiers and snowboarders alike are friendly, as are the people who work there. I HIGHLY recommend the new england clam clowda, in a bread bowl, it's heaven. But, be warned! The 'Juggernut' is a crossing between mts. for XC skiers, not downhill (big oops for us). This, my friends and I didn't know. It took for-ev-er to get back. Food a bit pricey, but worth it. Never a dull moment, enjoyed every second I was out on the perfect snowy sloples. If you have trouble finding your way around the mountain, the Great Eastern is a great trail stay on. =) -Go, you won't know why you hadn't made the trip earlier. Pros: Fast lift lines, heavenly clam chowda, atmosphere is great more

Killington & Woodstock 9/19/2005

Killington & the surrounding towns are absolutely georgous during foliage. Drive Rt4 east from Killington to Woodstock and you enter a town out of a Norman Rockwell painting, the shops and resturants are superb, or park and picnic in the town green, and later retrun to Killington and travel the winding Rt. 100 north just a few miles for picturesque trails and numerous fishing ponds. Many quaint country stores to find antiques, gifts, and maple candy, and award winning cheddars. Pros: beauty Cons: slow moving traffic more

My Family Loved it!! 10/14/2004

We have gone to Killington in early December & February. The snow was great. We have 3 children, 2 of them half day school and skiing on thier own my little one did half day of ski school. ALL the employees could not be MORE helpful guiding you to the correct areas and security for the kids was great. As for the prices they were no more or less than the other ski areas around. There are alot of places to choose from to eat from big $ to everyday pizza $. Never had a problem with parking and they have shuttles running all the time. Overall great time. Pros: Family Oriented, Variety, good skiing more

Some good Some bad 10/14/2004

K-Town is one of the more pricy mountians in the east, but it can provide value. With all the available deals (passes from $349), very few should pay full price. Trails tend to get crowded on weekends, but lift lines move fast. The dawn of the ""bad-ass"" free riders and free skiers has bred an influx of individuals who clearly do not know or care about the rules of the trials - be ware. Best skiing is always found early in the a.m. before bar hoppers wake up. Big plus: I have never seen another mountian turn rainy, icy, sloppy trails into skialbe terrain faster. My advice: pick up and all-for-one pass or ME ticket to save on cash. Ski early and stay home on the most crowded days of the year. Find someone who KNOWS the mountian and your experience will be much better (lots of hidden sweet spots). Pros: Diversity of Terrain, Trail turn-around, Night Life Cons: , Busy weekends, navigating the mtn. more

Mostly Lame 1/28/2003

Like to travel between peaks, in icy/windy conditions? If so then Killington is your place to ski. You spend most of your time travelling between peaks on this mountain. I could not find one terrain park on this mountain (what was labeled a terrain park was not jumps but had patches of grass coming up through the snow). They said they had a half-pipe but it was closed. Easy slopes on this mountain make for decent blue skiing (even if labeled black). The Waffle Haus' are cool (they should get em at every resort). I recommend to friends only if they are already on the East coast and want to ski. Pros: Waffle Haus., Easy. Cons: Too Much Travel., Windy/Icy., Lame Terrain Parks. more

This Beast Will Eat you & Spit you Out 1/28/2003

If you like crowds, lousy food, unhappy employees and the possibility of never seeing your family or car again, plus you want to have all of you money sucked out of your pocket, then Killington is the place for you! This place is aptly named the ""Beast of the East"", and that is the first time Killington has been honest about anything. Pros: difficulty of terrain, off mountain food Cons: crowds, over priced, trails intersect more

The Big K 1/6/2003

Best mountain in the east. Period. More terrain than any other, and the skickest snowfall in VT so far this year. Pros: Snow Cons: New Jerseyites more

Great Resort (on weekdays) 11/13/2002

We went to Killington during what seemed like an off-peak time (February) and it was great. There were very small crowds during the weekdays and the trails were fun to ski and the snow was in great shape. However, when Friday afternoon came around, the place was packed. Lift lines were long, every trail seemed to have numerous packs of people on it. That is my biggest complaint. Quite often there were groups skiers who ski in a line and block the entire path. You almost have to run them over to get past. I was told this problem was more common here than at resorts in the west. Pros: Variety of slopes, Scenery, Night Life Cons: Crowds (on weekends), Skier etiquette more

""Yut. Can't get thehr from hehr."" 10/11/2002

I grew up half way between Killington and Bromley. Winterdays were spent cutting class and sneaking off to the mountains. The problems then are much the same as they are now--obnoxious wannabes in outfits that cost more than most people's cars. If you're into serious skiing at any level take the time to research the smaller mountains--you'll get way more value for your dollar spent and the people you'll meet, employees as well as other vactioners, will make your stay A LOT more enjoyable. Bigger is NOT always better! Pros: Expensive stores, Expensive restaurants, Expensive tickets Cons: Obnoxious people, Overcrowded more

Leaf Peepers Delight 10/11/2002

A vivid array of colors as far as the eye can see. Breathtaking vistas and views...can't miss this one! Pros: Vivid Colors, Breathtaking Views Cons: Traffic more

The best staff 10/11/2002

A few years ago, my bestfriend and i vacationed in Vermont. We spent an afternoon at Killington and it was breathtaking. The one thing i want to point out is that i lost my prescription sunglasses at the top. They were considerate enough to continue looking for them. They were found one month later and were sent back to me in California!! How many places would do that?? more

The Best Fall Color In Vermont 9/23/2002

While I agree Killington does offer some great fall colors viewing, you missed it by a few miles. Vermont Route 4 which takes you to Killington also runs through the quaint community of Woodstock, VT. The most photographed road in all of Vermont during Fall is Cloudland Road. Take Route 12 north out of Woodstock to the Billings Farm turn right on to Riover Road and take your first left which is Cloudland...its a sectacular drive in fall. I know I lived ther for five years. more

Don't bother!! 9/7/2002

I've emailed them several times asking for info on their resort and the area. Never received so much as a canned ""thanks for asking"" response. If they can't take a minute to answer an email, what makes you think they might care about anything else? more
