Killington/Pico close due to coronavirus

Resort follows Vail in closing until March 22. Will reassess then.

Update from Killington Resort March 14 (11:45 p.m.)

Our top priority—the health and safety of our staff, guests and local community—remains at the forefront for us and, with this in mind, we are suspending all resort operations starting March 15, 2020, through March 22, 2020. We will continue to monitor the dynamic COVID-19 situation and reassess our approach for the rest of the season.

The suspension will include all mountain operations, food and beverage and skier services. Our Killington Resort lodging, ticket operations and central reservation department will remain open to service guests we have on site, but we will not be taking new reservations for the remainder of March, 2020.

Suspending our operations is an important step for us to take in support of the nation’s efforts to limit the spread and risks associated with COVID-19. This is a dynamic situation and we continue to believe outdoor mountain recreation provides a meaningful escape to nature, which is what made this a difficult decision but this is the right thing to do.

Given the extenuating circumstances related to COVID-19, Killington has modified our cancellation policies. Please contact us at 800-621-6867 if you need to shift your plans or if you are interested in booking for a future visit with enhanced flexibility to make changes without penalty down the road.  We anticipate heavy call volume over the next several days and appreciate guests’ patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries.

From those of us at Killington who love to live the adventure lifestyle, to those of you who share our passion, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this short notice will undoubtedly create. We look forward to welcoming you back to Killington as circumstances improve.
