Ski holidays in Killington

Killington is the largest ski resort in Eastern USA and its grand ski area caters well for all skiing abilities. Being just a few hours drive from Boston you can easily combine a skiing holiday with a city break.

As Killington is a large town having a car can be extremely useful here, although the seven mountains are all linked to surrounding lodgings by a good daytime bus service. On the slopes, the excellent snow record, long ski season and picturesque scenery combine to create a perfect destination for skiing and snowboarding. Off the slopes, Killington is a young and lively resort perfect for those seeking an action-packed skiing holiday.
