Discovering the Best Killing Mountain Slopes

The warmer-than-usual temperatures that have swept across the northern half of the United States in recent weeks had an adverse effect on our slopes here on Killington Mountain, but things are finally looking up! With expected snowstorms and freezing temperatures heading our way, it’s only a matter of time before more than 100 ski trails are open here in Killington, VT. The Killington Group has already welcomed hundreds of eager alpine skiers and snowboarders to our luxurious ski house rentals with over a thousand more expected. The best time to hit the slopes is fast approaching as New Englanders are bound to catch wind of the prime skiing conditions here at the largest ski resort in Vermont. Here are some things to remember before arriving at one of our affordable, modern ski house rentals.

The Best Time to Visit Killing Mountain

So, when is the best time to visit Killington? The answer is right now (or as soon as possible). Killington is not only the largest ski area in Vermont, but it’s one of the best resorts in North America. Skiers and snowboarders visit us here at The Killington Group from all across the globe. The secret is out: Killington has the best wintertime thrills in New England, period. Booking a weekday getaway to Killington is the best way to avoid crowds, lines, and hiked prices. It’s also worth noting that very few visitors hit the slopes before noon, meaning that 9 a.m. to noon is the best time of the day to explore the ski area.

Hidden Gems in Killington

There are 155 different trails here in Killington, making it nearly impossible to try them all. It’s important to seek out under-utilized ski trails while on our mountains. There are several secluded hidden gems here in Killington that are beautiful, serene, and meticulously groomed. The moderately-difficult “Great Northern – Middle” gashes across Snowdon Mountain, through a new tunnel, and sweeps down the edge of the mountain after a hairpin turn. A short but steep and slippery trail worth revisiting is the “North Star,” also on Snowdon Mountain.

Current Conditions

As of early January, there are 98 open trails, amassing 54 miles of groomed skiing, by far the most in New England. You could spend an entire week here in Killington and never carve down every trail. Thirteen lifts are currently operating with a few more likely to open in the coming weeks and months. The teams on the mountain have been running snow guns nonstop while the favorable weather allows, meaning we’re likely in for some spectacular conditions in February.

Affordable Ski House Rentals

ski house rentalsThe perfect way to begin each day in our affordable yet modern ski house rentals is with a freshly-brewed cup of coffee and a hearty breakfast in your sizable kitchen.

We proudly provide sizable homes and affordable condos with hot tubs, fireplaces, and ski-in-and-off capabilities with all the comforts of home for the price of a hotel room.

Best Breweries near Killington VT

Skiing enthusiasts and craft beer lovers rejoice! Vermont is the unofficial microbrewery capital of the United States. Our beautiful state ranks first in breweries per capita (11.5) and gallons per 21+ adult (18.9), according to the Brewers Association. The craft beer industry had a $309 million impact in 2017, the second largest in the U.S. per capita. The average 21+ adult spent nearly $667 on craft beer last year alone. The booming craft beer industry finally reached the beautiful ski town of Killington last year. New breweries near Killington VT are popping up in nearly every surrounding city. You can finally pair your world-class skiing experience with award-winning craft beer here at The Killington Group. Without further ado, here are the four best breweries near Killington VT.

Killington Beer Company

The Killington Beer Company opened its doors in mid-January to rave reviews from locals and visiting skiers alike. All of our affordable vacation rentals are within minutes of this brand new establishment, located in the heart of downtown Killington. The interior of this taproom is highlighted by retired bourbon barrels, rustic local art, repurposed wood floors, and a panoramic gas fireplace. Order a pint of their roasty, dry “Super Stout,” fill a basket with pub popcorn, and reminisce about the day’s best thrills on Killington Mountain.

Long Trail Brewing Company

Eleven miles south of town, just off US-4 in Bridgewater Corners, rests Long Trail Brewing Company, one of the best breweries near Killington VT. Long Trail has been a Vermont brewery tour staple since 1989. Don’t let this brewpub’s unassuming exterior fool you – they’re slinging some of the best American IPAs and pub food in Vermont. There’s nothing lavish about this local establishment, but the simplistic charm (including a giant moose head) has won over local beer lovers.

Foley Brothers Brewing

The 28-mile trip from Killington to Brandon is worth the journey for one reason: Foley Brothers Brewing, one of the highest-rated Vermont breweries on Untappd. Foley Brothers isn’t much more than a well-insulated shed near on the edge of a countryside golf course, but boy can they brew exceptional batches of craft beer. Foley Brothers, known for their high-ABV double IPAs,  offers something uniquely intimate in the Green Mountains.

River Roost Brewery

We saved the best beer for last. River Roost is not only one of the best breweries near Killington VT, but it’s the 41st highest-rated microbrewery in the U.S., according to over 20,000 beer drinkers on Untappd. River Roost Brewery is approximately 34 miles east of Killington, near the New Hampshire border. Many of our visiting skiers grab a pint before or after their stay with The Killington Group. The taproom, unfortunately, doesn’t pour pints, only tasters and growler fills, so make the journey only if you’re planning a day-trip to the Hanover area.

Premier Killington Lodging

The perfect place to enjoy your freshly-poured growler is in one of our affordable, pristine vacation rentals after a glorious day on the slopes. The Killington Group provides sizable homes and affordable condos with hot tubs, fireplaces, and ski-in-and-off capabilities with all the comforts of home for the price of a hotel room. Browse through our premier Killington accommodations online, or give us a call at 1-802-422-2300 to speak with a friendly staff member.

The Killington Skiing Season Is Finally Here

The nation’s first-to-open and last-to-close ski resort is officially up and running here in mid-November. Killington Mountain, the “Beast of the East,” already has over a foot of snow with more headed our way this upcoming weekend. The Killington skiing scene is widely considered the premier winter getaway in New England for many reasons. The fresh powder is meticulously-groomed, the Killington Mountain views are breathtaking, and The Killington Group has dozens of conveniently-located vacation rentals. Let’s take a closer look at Killington Mountain’s new features, improvements, and early-season conditions.

Killington’s New Features and Improvements

One of the main reasons that tourists from across the globe flock to the Green Mountains every winter for a Killington skiing adventure is our area’s never-ending thirst for expansion and improvement. Skiers and snowboarders return every winter to utilize the improved terrain, new lifts, and added trails. The mountain just underwent a $25 million facelift. You’ll notice a new high-speed, six-person chairlift with a bubble shield, enhanced trails, and more tunnel systems to eliminate the crossovers. New snowmaking and grooming equipment were also purchased, a feature you’ll discern immediately after carving down your first hill.

Early Season Conditions

Killington Mountain already has 12 inches of snow depth, and, as stated above, we’re expecting a good amount of snowfall this weekend. With continued cold temperatures for snowmaking and natural snow, the trail conditions at the highly-anticipated Women’s Audi FIS Ski World Cup should be prime. In the coming days, new trails and lifts will be greenlighted. We’re currently sitting at 15 inches of snow depth at the peak.

killington skiing 1Why Is Killington Skiing so Incredible?

Why do nearly one million people visit Killington Mountain each year? We believe there are five key reasons: the mountain views, fresh powder, friendly culture, 212 trails, and affordable vacation rentals. The views from the mountain’s peak are simply stunning. You’re nearly standing in the clouds. The mountain is particularly beautiful after a fresh snowfall or hoarfrost. With over 200 trails, spanning 92 miles, Killington Mountain provides a week’s worth of thrills. We’re only days away from the highly-anticipated Women’s Audi FIS Ski World Cup, a must-visit for skiing enthusiasts of all ages.

Premier Killington Lodging

The city of Killington, VT, is one of the most popular winter destinations in North America. Hotel prices skyrocket every winter, which is why so many tourists choose The Killington Group as their skiing headquarters. We have dozens of vacation homes, townhomes, and condominiums near Killington Mountain’s basin, many of which are actually at the same price point as a generic three-star hotel. You’ll also be able to hop aboard our complimentary shuttle or directly ski down a short trail to the mountain. Our vacation rentals range from one-bedroom condos to 25-person ski houses. Visit our website, or dial 1-802-422-2300 to find a rental that perfectly fits your family or group.

Women’s Audi FIS Ski World Cup on Killington Mountain

The best female alpine skiers in the world will convene on Thanksgiving weekend here in snowy Killington, VT. Killington Mountain will yet again play host to the 2018 Women’s Audi FIS Ski World Cup. This ultra-popular free event will be the only World Cup expo in the United States this winter. After the Northeast went 25 years without hosting a World Cup, this exciting sport returned to Killington Mountain in 2016. The professional skiers and FIS were so pleased that they almost immediately announced the city would host the World Cup again in 2017 and 2018. We’re now five weeks away from this stunning display, which entertained 30,000 onlookers a year ago.

Killington Mountain will likely see thousands more arrive to watch Mikaela Shiffrin attempt to best her second-place finish from 2017. After a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, head up to the Green Mountains for a one-of-a-kind spectacle! The Killington Group still has some availability for Thanksgiving weekend; book now before our luxurious vacation rentals quickly sell out!

Ladies’ Slalom

Ninety athletes from over 20 countries are expected to race down the Superstar trail on Killington Mountain. The event will be broadcasted to millions of people on NBC and NBCSN. Shiffrin will likely perform in both events. She finished first in the giant slalom at the 2018 Winter Olympics, besting Ragnhild Mowinckel (Norway) and Federica Brignone (Italy). Shiffrin missed the slalom podium by 0.08 seconds at the same Olympics – a fact she hasn’t forgotten. Frida Hansdotter (Sweden), Wendy Holdener (Switzerland), and Katharina Gallhuber (Austria) all finished ahead of the two-time gold medal winner.

Live Entertainment

Not many free events feature such a diverse and talented music lineup. Lucky onlookers will have the chance to see growing Scottish superstar KT Tunstall, Boston-based Guster, reggae master Michael Franti, and the former #1 DJ in the world, Paul Oakenfold. Hopefully, we’ll get to hear Guster play “Satellite” and Franti perform “Say Hey.” You never know what Oakenfold will pull out of his hat, and Tunstall’s “Black Horse and the Cherry” will set the crowd ablaze. Teton Gravity Research will also be screening their latest film, “Far Out.”

Daily Festivities

Killington Mountain will still be open to the public, so you can spend hours skiing or snowboarding on a slightly modified course. We take alpine skiing very seriously here in the Northeast, which is why there will be fireworks, parades, autograph sessions, and so much more! This event is free, but a limited amount of enhanced viewing tickets are available.

Luxurious Killington Lodging

The Killington Group has a fleet of vacation rentals near the World Cup, so you’ll always be close to all the slalom action. You’ll also be minutes from fine restaurants, skiing hills, and craft breweries near Killington, VT. We still have properties available, ranging from two-bedroom condos to four-bedroom vacation homes. Scroll through our extensive vacation rental list here, or give us a call at 1-802-422-2300.

The Calvin Coolidge Homestead in nearby Plymouth remains one of the most-visited attractions in Vermont. Take a step back in time at the childhood home of the United States’ 30th president. Calvin Coolidge, “Silent Cal,” lived in this home for 11 years before departing for historical Black River Academy in Ludlow. Coolidge was in politics for only 22 years, including his six-year term as President of the United States (1923-1929).
