We are returning to Killington, one of the largest ski areas in the East. It has 155 trails for all abilities (28% easier; 33% more difficult; 39% most difficult). Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are available at nearby Mountain Meadows XC Center. Also, a public golf course adjacent to Cascades Lodge can be accessed at no cost for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
We will be staying again at Cascades Lodge near the base of the mountain, and there is a convenient, free shuttle from the lodge to the base area. Deluxe rooms offer double occupancy with two queen size beds; or one double bed and one queen bed; or one king bed. Rooms have daily housekeeping and Internet access as well as a refrigerator, hair dryer, coffee pot, and ski storage. The Lodge has an indoor pool, hot tub and Finnish sauna, a pub, and a living room and dining room. An extra “living room” area next to the pool is available to gather for our nightly pre- and après- dinner gatherings.
The double occupancy rate per person package cost is $450; single rate package cost is $717. This package cost includes five nights lodging (Sunday through Thursday), a full hot breakfast buffet each day including all taxes and gratuities even if we have fewer than 20 people; three dinners on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights (buffet style or plated, based on the final count of people); and a welcome party on Sunday night with a cheese platter and accompaniments.
The 2020 midweek group lift ticket rates for seniors (ages 65+) are $145 (for 3 days), or $163 (for 4 days); adult tickets (up to age 64) are $168 (for 3 days), or $188 (for 4 days). All skiers age 80+, there is no charge. Please note also that Killington is among the major ski areas participating in the ”Ikon pass”.
Please register online for the trip online. Payments can made by credit card, and the full payment for the double or single hotel package and the ski lift ticket choice will be charged at the time of online registration.
