KILLINGTON, Vermont — Back-to-back winter storms have blanketed Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard resort in the Northeast, with more than three feet of new snow just in time for the Holiday Season!

“All the new snow couldn’t have come at a better time as skiers are gearing up for a holiday break to hit the slopes,” said Patricia Ryan, sales, marketing and reservation director for Killington Resort. “The phone lines at Killington Central Reservations have been ringing off the hook since the snow starting falling on Friday.”
