Seasons & Weather in Killington, Vermont

Four Seasons of Beauty & Adventure


Wow! That’s the only way to describe Killington in winter. Alpine skiers and riders celebrate winter at Killington Resort and Pico, where there’s an endless variety of trails, slopes, glades and terrain features. But winter in Killington, Vermont offers more than alpine skiing and riding!  Nordic skiiers, snowshoers and snowmobilers can enjoy endless terrain for all abilities.  If you’d rather a more relaxing adventure through the snow, check out a horse-drawn sleigh ride. And come evening, relax before a roaring fire with your favorite beverage or rock the night away on the infamous Killington Road.



The calendar says spring arrives the third week of March. In Killington that means buds, boards and a virtual banquet of activities that bridge the season! Skiing and riding lasts well into April, while in the lowlands the first signs of green often make their appearances.  Spring also brings maple sugaring and the annual Sugarhouse Tours.




Killington in Summer is easily described in one word: Spectacular! Take a sunset paddle on Kent Pond, fly fish in a mountain stream, hike along the Appalachian or Long trail, go for a bike ride or take a leisurely walk along River Road. For golfers, there are two courses, Killington Resort’s lauded mountain course and Golf Digest’s favorite Vermont course- Green Mountain National. In summer, there are tons of events and free concerts to enjoy.



Mother Nature paints the mountains of Killington with colors so bright and vibrant it will take your breath away. Warm sunny days and crisp fall evenings are best spent in the Heart of the Green Mountains. Fall is a perfect time to visit and enjoy the outdoors during the day and kick back at a bed and breakfast or inn for the evening!  Killington's central location makes it a perfect "home base" for scenic foliage drives and day trips.



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.
