Welcome to The Killington
Chamber of Commerce On-Line
You'll know this is a special destination as you approach, and
the seven mountains of Killington rise up to greet you. Whether
blanketed in winter white, sporting the deep emerald the Green Mountains
are named for, or dazzling in fiery fall color, these mountains
know no season.
The Killington Region is an all-season vacation destination. With
some of the highest and most varied mountain terrain in New England,
Killington is the choice for outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Killington
Resort is one of the largest ski areas in the world - 95 miles of
skiing and snowboarding terrain, many of which also support mountain
biking and hiking when the snows have melted. The famous Appalachian
and Long Trails transverse these mountains, as do miles of VAST
trails, the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers snowmobile and
cross country ski statewide trail system.
For less rugged adventure, this spectacular mountain setting is
home to two PGA golf courses, with 12 area courses just a short
drive away. The Killington Region is known as the heart of Vermont
for more than one reason. Ideally located in the center of the state,
it is the perfect base for all of your Vermont adventures. While
our region offers a multitude of recreation, lodging and dining
choices, most all destinations of interest, both North and South,
are just a scenic ride away. We can help you plan day trips to some
of Vermont's scenic, historic and recreation points of interest.
There are abundant opportunities for live artistic performances
throughout the year with numerous events scheduled for summer in
the Killington region. The Paramount Theatre in Rutland, The Killington
Music Festival, the Rutland Downtown Partnership, the Weston Playhouse
Theatre in Weston, Vermont, and the Pentangle Council on the Arts
in Woodstock, Vermont offer an assortment of live performances.
Killington night clubs, including the Pickle Barrell and the Wobbly
Barn have additional offerings. You can enjoy everything from chamber
music performed by world-renowned musicians to the latest in popular
and rock music. Check out our Calendar of Events or link to our
members’ web sites for detailed schedules of events.
The "Heart of Vermont" is embodied in the Killington Region
- spectacular mountains, outdoor adventure, quaint New England towns,

old fashioned downtown can be found in the city of Rutland, only
a few minutes away. In fact, our region provides a wealth of shopping,
entertainment and dining. So, whether your thrill is a first morning
run down a pristine white slope, the challenge of a sweeping mountain
course, or a silent moment before a breathtaking view, you must
experience the Heart of Vermont - The Killington Region.
