The Killington Bike Park is scheduled to open on Memorial Day weekend, conditions permitting, much to the excitement of New England’s dedicated cycling community. What makes our beautiful Green Mountains city so unique is that we’re not only the first-to-open and last-to-close skiing destination on the East Coast, but the cycling season begins immediately afterward. After conquering some of the most challenging singletracks in the country during the daytime, retreat to one of The Killington Group’s affordable, conveniently-located, and fully-equipped Killington house rentals for dinner, drinks, and hot tub relaxation.
