If you decide to take a Killington family vacation, make sure to pack a sweater for each member of the family. This town has chilly winters and very mild summers. As the home of two ski resorts, a trip down to Roots Ski and Snowboard is essential to rent boots, ski and snow equipment. Their helpful staff will have you in and out quickly so you can enjoy the fresh powder on the mountains. To start your Killington activities, get your gear loaded up and find a warm and cozy room in one of the many local hotels.
The Summit Lodge Killington keeps you nice and toasty during all seasons of the year with two outdoor pools, one of which is heated.

For a unique family attraction in Killington that your animal-loving kids will enjoy, this hotel is home to a family of Saint Bernards that greet guests and pose for pictures.
