Killington ski resort is a favorite for the New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island New England area.
It is slightly closer than many of the other Vermont resorts and larger.
The resort's proximity to a network of highways also helps make travel convenient.
Skiers and boarders from all over New England (New York, Boston, Hartford, Providence, ...) drive up to Killington for a weekend of skiing.
The New England ski resorts are not typically mountainous enough to be destination resorts for the rest of the US or global population thus people rarely arrive by air..
