Thrill-seekers may have met their match at Killington Resort—a self-proclaimed “beast” of adventure for skiers and snowboarders—the largest in the Eastern U.S. Featuring 155 trails (with the highest vertical drop exceeding 3,000 feet) spread over more than 1,500 skiable acres, Killington helps visitors zip around the massive resort with the help of 21 lifts and three gondolas. Other attractions include: freestyle riding through log rails and rainbow trees in The Stash terrain park; taking a Meet the Mountains guided tour (with well over a thousand acres to explore); and tubing. Additional amenities include a bubble-enclosed ski lift, improved snowmaking, and terrain enhancements to give skiers a smoother ride.
