It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Killington

Peak Season: November to February; October

Killington’s six mountains get crowded early in the season. Beware long lift lines on weekends and school holidays. October is peak tree-watching season, and the nearby winding roads offer antiques and maple candy, while hikers trek through the northern part of the Appalachian Trail. Book lodging far in advance.

Off Season: April to September

Killington offers little but very pretty scenery April through June and in September. July and August are more lively, with mountain biking, horseback riding, climbing walls, and gondola rides, as well as concerts and the Killington Wine Festival.

Sweet Spot: March

Killington has the longest ski season in the Northeast thanks to its snowmaking capacity. In March, the skiing is still great and the crowds have gone, plus there are deals on lodging and lift tickets.
