Killington — Long a preferred winter escape for New Yorkers and Bostonians, Killington, Vermont has been going strong for more than 50 years. Touting both the longest ski season in the East (running from roughly early November to early May) and the largest ski area east of the Mississippi (with 191 runs and 22 lifts), Killington has rightfully earned its moniker, “The Beast.” Our Killington Travel Guide maps out notable recent enhancements, including the addition of the high-speed Skye Peak Express and “the Stash,” a freestyle snowboarding area created with the input of snowboard pioneer Jake Burton. With three heated express gondolas –and a sizzling nightlife scene, to boot – braving the legendary cold of the Northeast is a bit less daunting in Killington.

Why Go

For the variety of terrain, lengthy ski season, and infinite off-slope fun options.
