Today: Killington still operates as an alpine ski resort; no longer offers cross country skiing



According to, an online ski area guide, "this popular artist's rendering of Killington was updated in the late 1970s to reflect the addition of Outer Limits and the South Ridge section.  It also shows trail enhancements of Rams Head."

From: Rick Bolger,, Killington Resort A Personal Perspective



Opened in 1958, Killington Ski Area is the largest alpine resort in the eastern United States (and also boasts the highest vertical drop in the East) making it the self-proclaimed "Beast of the East."  In the 1970s Killington offered 5 miles of cross country trails, two lessons daily, and rentals for children and adults.
