WHY: For all the crap Killington takes, it’s still one huge place with plenty of legit terrain and good skiers. You’ll need days to explore it, even without making time for Pico. Just don’t be a dope and show up on a holiday weekend—you’ll be crotch-deep in skidding joeys.
WHAT: Start with a K-1 gondie ride to Vermont’s second-highest peak. End up over at Bear Mountain, where the bumps on Outer Limits are all that.
WHERE: Yes, the Killington access road goes off. Don’t be shy; send them a round. That’s what they’re here for too.
