Smeared across seven peaks and offering more than 3,000 vertical feet, Killington is the Big Papi of Northeast ski resorts. Even better: As the second-highest peak in Vermont, the resort extracts upslope powder when warm storms spackle lower mountains in slush. The K-1 Express gondola delivers you near the top of 4,241-foot Killington Peak for laps in glades so deep you’ll forget you’re on the East Coast. And when the sun sinks behind Vermont’s Green Mountains, Killington Road lights up with the raunchiest après scene east of Breckenridge.
