killington Spring skiing at Killington.

Killington Resort can generally stretch its season to outlast its counterparts. SnowPak, a website that tracks resorts' open and close dates, projected Killington would shut its doors at the end of May. This outpaces other listed Vermont resorts, many of which had season end dates set in April.
