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.
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
The 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. The Killington Group has a number of ski to/from properties. You’ll be able to throw on your gear, head out the front door, and ski your way to the nearest lift. 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.
