Get in[edit]

While some transportation is available directly to and from Killington, there are more transportation options available to and from the nearby city of Rutland, including Amtrak train service.

By car[edit]

Route 4 runs East-West through the town and Route 100 comes in from the North. It is about a 3-hour drive from Boston and a 4-hour drive from Montreal.

By bus[edit]

Round trip bus service is offered by New England Snow Bus from Boston and OVR from New York City on Saturdays during the ski season. There is a Greyhound bus stop at the Killington Chamber of Commerce as well.

By plane[edit]

Three flights a day are made to and from Boston Logan to nearby Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport (RUT). The closest major airport serving a number of other cities is Burlington International Airport (BTV), about 2 hours away by car.

Get around[edit]

See[edit]

  • Thundering Brook Falls, 2295 River Rd. (From the intersection of 4, 100, and Killington Rd. drive east on 4 for about 2 miles to River Rd. The parking lot is on the left approximately 1.5 miles down the road). Beautiful 140-foot waterfall accessed by a short walk on a handicap accessible boardwalk portion of the Appalachian Trail.

Do[edit]

  • Killington Resort, 4763 Killington Rd, toll-free: +1-800-621-MTNS (6867). Called the "Beast of the East" Killington is the largest ski resort in the eastern United States. The ski area also usually has the longest ski season in the east, operating from around late October until June. The resort is made up of 6 mountain peaks and over 200 trails. In addition to its well known winter offerings, Killington also has a variety of summer activities including mountain biking, hiking, and disc golf.
  • Pico Mountain, 73 Alpine Dr., +1 802-422-1330. A favorite of locals, Pico offers skiers and riders many benefits of a larger mountain but with a smaller mountain feel. The mountain is owned by the parent company of Killington, allowing ticket packages for both resorts to be purchased together.

Buy[edit]

Eat[edit]

  • Hemingway's Restaurant. An excellent four-star restaurant just east of the Killington base road turnoff on Rt 4. Try the chocolate cake.
  • Sushi Yoshi, 1807 Killington Rd., +1 802-422-4241. Chinese restaurant with hibachi tables
  • Domenic's Pizzeria, 2822 Killington Rd., +1 802-422-7070. Pizza place on the Killington access road, a self-described "Upscale Pizza Joint"

Drink[edit]

Sleep[edit]

There is lodging of all types on and off mountain. "Ski in Ski out" lodging means just that -- it enables you to generally, but not always, leave your parking worries behind. Many condo and vacation rentals that are in developments offer shuttle buses to the lifts.

  • North Star Lodge, 78 Weathervane Dr, toll-free: +1-888-828-6745. This cozy lodge features sweeping views and access to all that Killington has to offer; skiing, golfing, hiking, and much more.

Go next[edit]

  • Heading east one would soon find themselves in Woodstock, a village that could be described as the quintessential Vermont town. Many little shops line its Main St. with the green mountains as their backdrop.
