“Killington a must for NE skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Resort staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms were great, food was good, and skiing was phenomenal. Ski school was fantastic not crowded even for a weekend. The instructors were great, and you can tell they enjoy what they do. Trails were groomed nicely and there is a lot of mountains to ski with great lifts, no excessively long lines. My family was very impressed and we will certainly add this to the top of the list for NE ski resorts.

“A great day on the slopes, and in the lodge.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Hit the slopes when it was 5 degrees at 8:30 Sunday morning, February 10, 2013 with an advanced skier, and since the powder two days earlier was on the hard pack, even the double black diamonds were doable. The lunch in the lodge, which was the only time we went in all day, was a Chinese dinner with a drink for $9.99 and delicious. I had been long ago on May 15th for a mogul field in the warmth of Spring, and one other time and remember not feeling like it was 6 mountains, but today we covered the entire resort, left to right, top to bottom, and it was great. The crowds were less than expected for a Sunday, with 5 minutes max to wait for a gondola, and no wait in the singles line. The temp got up to 23 degrees by 2pm, and the layers came off. This was better than anticipated, and the views dramatic with unlimited visibility. (And the lodge layout had bathrooms nearby on the same level, and a sink by the trash can, they planned everything well.)

“Big is Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Killington Mountain is so vast that you never get tired of skiing it. There are trails for every level. The locals who staff the place are very dedicated and nice.

“great time skiing and boarding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

we signed up for group lessons and since it was an off week we all got private lessons everyday. The instructors were great and everyone ages 5 to 50 had a great time
