Killington has a great deal to offer and it makes many claims to being the biggest and the best that eastern USA can offer: it has the longest season, the biggest ski area, the steepest mogul slopes, the biggest snowmaking facilities and the largest fleet of piste-bashers to groom all those slopes.

The beginners' area at Killington is outstanding, with one vast slope 'The Snowshed', served by 3 chairlifts and one reassuringly slow drag!
For intermediates Killington offers a huge range, and for experts there is a wide variety of challenging runs on Bear Mountain, Snowdon and Skye, not forgetting the famous 'Outer Limits' which claims to be the steepest mogul slope in the East.
Quieter than its neighbour Killington, Pico is friendly & uncrowded. Beginners can start on two gentle learner trails in the Bonanza area and more experienced skiers can take full advantage of the 1967 feet of vertical drop spread over 252 skiable acres.
