Thanks for passing Killington Forward: the future looks bright

Dear Editor,

A big thank you to the voters of Killington. The passage of the Killington Forward article at last week’s Town Meeting, by a wide margin, has finally set the new Six Peaks Village into motion. We owe it all to this amazing community.

Killington Resort and Great Gulf Group are excited to embark on a partnership to bring (even more) world class skiing and riding, dining, entertainment venues and activities to the area. We are confident that this long-term project will improve the experience not just for visitors from far and wide, but the locals as well.

Our involvement and commitment to create a vibrant new community will bring many new opportunities to the town of Killington. With clean water and infrastructure improvements, the Killington area will truly thrive. The community will have more options for housing and the number of great year-round job opportunities are set to increase significantly.

We appreciate that there are construction concerns about the changes the Six Peaks Village may cause and assure you we will work diligently to make sure the skier experience is not affected in the short-term. If you’ve ever been to one of the great ski resort villages out West, then you know how truly transformative this can be. We are excited to bring this experience to the heart of the Green Mountains.

We plan to break ground on additional parking as soon as possible in 2023 and will continue to be transparent as progress is made towards the new Ramshead Lodge and beyond.

Again, we could not have done it without your votes. So, thank you! 

The future of Killington looks bright.

Michael Sneyd, president Resort Residential for Great Gulf and Mike Solimano, president and general manager at Killington and Pico Resort Partners
