Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest mountain resort in Eastern North America and a POWDR company, is opening with summer operations this Memorial Day Weekend. Killington will open the 18-hole Golf Course Saturday, May 23 to Vermont residents and those non-residents who’ve quarantined for 14 days and the Bike Park Saturday, June 6 to pass holders only, pending Gov. Phil Scott’s approval of the Killington Mountain Biking operations plan, which we have updated to ensure the safety of our guests, staff, and community given COVID-19.

“As we transition into summer operations, we’ve made the tough decision to not reopen for skiing and riding. Given our commitment to early and late season skiing, it was hard to close the door on the 2019-20 ski season, but we feel fortunate to have enjoyed the longest season in the East – 133 days, despite the early closure – and to be offering our guests the Passholder Promise as an assurance for the future.”

– Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort

Killington’s first priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our staff, guests, and the greater community. The resort will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 and follow all local, state, and national regulations, which may require operational adjustments throughout the summer. The reopening of Vermont’s economy is being carefully managed by state authorities, and it’s of utmost importance that we all follow the guidelines and do our part to reopen safely.
