KILLINGTON, Vt. — Killington Resort celebrates Easter weekend March 26-27 with a sunrise service, Easter egg hunts and some of the best spring skiing and riding in eastern North America.
With more than four feet of snow already this month, combined with deep base depths, warm temperatures and longer days, the new Killington is the place to spend Easter weekend.
Whether you are on skis, snowboard or foot, Killington Resort has a way for everyone to celebrate Easter. The heated K-1 Express Gondola will open at 5:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday for a warm and scenic trip to the top of Killington Peak for a 7:00 a.m. non-denominational sunrise service. Enjoy a peaceful service with panoramic views of five states and Canada followed by a free continental breakfast.
Following the sunrise service, skiers and snowboarders are invited to get first tracks with the kids as they search for treats left behind by our local Easter Bunny at Snowshed and Ramshead lodges.
Easter weekend packages start at $90 per person/per night and include three days of skiing/riding and three nights lodging. Packages must be booked at least 48 hours before arrival by visiting www.killington.com or calling 800-621-MTNS.
