A Killington wedding can be as economical or as lavish as you'd like. Thanks to our large variety of locations and venues, most budgets can be met. A simple wedding in a grassy valley is a low-cost solution, while couples with a larger budget may

You can offer your guests the option of booking their lodging at any location of their chosing, which allows them to set their own budget.

I'm on a budget - can I afford a destination wedding?

Of course! Everything you need for a wedding - a site, flowers, a salon, etc - has to be paid for anyway, so you might as well do it somewhere fun! To really cut down on your costs, consider doing a wedding mid-week or in the off season. Booking rooms in bulk will result in better pricing, and outdoor events like BBQs, hikes, or visiting museums can be a free or nearly-free way to offer your guests unique activities.

What's the weather like in Killington?

Killington, Vermont has four distinct seasons, and the weather varies greatly depending on the time of year. Because Killington is internationally know for skiing, it's no surprise that Killington is a winter wonderland for much of the year.  Winter unofficially starts in November and stretches until the end of March, when temperatures start to warm. Temperatures average around 20 degrees in the depth of winter and creep slowly up to the 30s and 40s during the early spring. It may surprise you that March is, on average, the snowiest month in Killington, with an average snowfall of 57 inches.  Late season snowfall typically allows for skiing at Killington Resort until the beginning of May.  

Like most places in the Northeast, Spring weather is variable.  Vermonters often refer to early spring as "mud season" because rising temperatures cause the frozen ground and snow in the mountains to melt.  In May and June, the vegetation buds and blooms with vibrant green color.  Summers, lasting from approximately mid June until the end of August, are mild and have average temperatures in the mid 70s and low 80s.  Excessively hot days can usually be avoided by heading up into the mountains or visiting a local swimming hole. Warm days and cold nights are typical in September and October, creating the perfect recipe for colorfull fall foliage. When the last leaves fall, it’s strictly ski season, with steady snowfall and world-class skiing all winter.
