Play a Round of Golf
From May 25 through October 14 (2019 dates) the expert Geoffrey Cornish-designed Killington Resort is your finest place to play golf. It is rated 6,186-yard, par 72 Championship Golf Course, with top amenities, including a spectacular 12,000 square-foot putting green and practice bunker. You can request private lessons from a local master or visit the Clubhouse Bar and Grill with its outdoor deck seating. If you can’t get away for a nice lunch or dinner, there’s also an on-course beverage cart.
Relax at the Killington Summer Concert Series
The Killington Summer Concert Series runs the entire season. Every Saturday, at the Snowshed Base Area near the Killington Bike Park, you can stop by for some music under the sun. It ranges from fun and funky pop/rock groups to punk and folk. One of the year’s highlights includes the renowned Sublime-inspired group, Badfish. Hear wispy folk from Oliver Hazard, or inspirational dance/hip-hop from Juice. Ballroom Thieves will close out the summer series with their distinct style of male and female harmonies over crooning rock and folk.
The “Cooler in the Mountains Concert Series” is a wonderful way to experience the community. You’ll find snacks and bar food at the Snowshed Umbrella bar.
Take an ATV Tour
With no clutch and no shifting, anyone who can drive a car can drive an ATV through the Vermont mountainsides. It’s an absolute blast for anyone who wants that full-throttle thrill of coasting through nature. Your ATV tour will always be led by an experienced guide.
