Killington Mountain, Killington, Vermont
Killington, Vermont 05751| Map |
Killington Peak is the second highest summit in the Green Mountains. It is a stop on the Long Trail, which shares its route with the Appalachian Trail. Families can enjoy long distance trails and a ski area on this mountain and other peaks that surround it. Skiers and snowboarders can access the mountain via the Killington Ski Resort, affectionately called the “best of the east.'' The area features 200 trails across six mountain peaks and is accessible to every ski level from the novice to ski devils. On a clear day, looking north, you can see the Adirondack’s to your left, the rest of the Green Mountains in front and the White Mountains to your right. Although it is the largest ski area in New England with the highest vertical drop at just over 3,000 feet, the mountain is not just ideal for winter sports. During the warmer months families can go hiking, horseback riding and golfing as well.

Tips for Families
Killington Peak is closed in spring and all high elevation trails are closed by the State from April 15 to Memorial Day (Mud Season) to protect the fragile plans and help prevent trail erosion. Snowshoes are required during the winter. Most people climb the mountain the summer and fall. Five of the six mountains are used in the summer and include 45 miles of mountain biking terrain and hiking trails.
