Great White View-Ski on Ski

Here at Killington Resort, there are five base areas to start your day at. To help plan out your adventure, check out the amenities each has to offer - find your favorite or explore them all.

Plus, to help everyone get home at the end of the day, here’s a trick: each of the Killington base areas is color-coded at the lodge, the lift, parking lot and on-hill signage. Your lift ticket even comes with a tie that matches the color of the lodge where it was purchased. Use the color coding to help get you back to where you started!

Snowshed Green
Ramshead Purple
Bear Mountain Red
Skyeship Orange
