Big news from last year and what's in store this year?
Killington began construction on new jump trails and added many features along its existing terrain. The resort also added summer guest access to the new Umbrella Bars near the Superstar quad for great drinks and food with a beautiful view.
The park has a brand new peak restaurant that will be open 7 days a week and will be spinning Snowshed lift this summer on the weekends. This will give bikers access to new terrain, including jump trails and super easy beginner trails. Killington is stoked to be offering this added terrain and makes Killington the only resort in the east spinning two lifts for mountain biking.

When is the best time of year to visit Killington?
According to insiders at Killington, any time during the summer is a good time. They don't call it the green mountains for no reason. The views from the summit are second-to-none and temperatures stay pretty consistent all summer, with very few days ever breaking the 90 degree mark.
Of course, September and early October are prime time for visitors looking for that beautiful New England fall foliage that takes over the trees and creates some incredible scenery as well.

Killington Bike Park has enough variety for everyone with 45 miles of lift-serviced trails. From easy-going dirt roads to rugged single track, all ability levels can find something to ride on the mountain. The trails range from full on aggressive downhill and freeriding trails to cross-country singletrack.
The bike park spans five mountain areas serviced by the K-1 Express Gondola. The pro, the variation of trail linkages is huge and keeps things interesting. The con, navigation can be a bit of a task. It may be worth trying to tag-along with a local that is familiar with the trails.
The easier downhill trails in the park require sections of pedaling, keeping rider’s speed in check. The more difficult trails are typically technical narrow singletrack that can be very steep in sections. You can also find both man-made and natural features on the trails at Killington.
