Overview

Why bother hiking 7.2 miles with 2,519 feet in elevation gain in brutal wintery conditions when you can simply hop on a gondola hassle-free to reach the summit in minutes, enjoy the breath-taking 360-degree view and chill at the resort restaurant with a full bar? I totally hear you 'cause I am on the same boat! Except somehow-somehow I am choosing the hard way this time around to climb up to meet y'all there! Or, are you one of those who need some breaks from skiing/snowboarding before you hit the slope in the afternoon? Or, maybe you feel somewhat hesitant to rent a pair of snowshoes for the first time and hike up the 4,000-footer without any prior winter hiking experience? Don't you worry... borrow snowshoes, gaiters, hiking poles with snow baskets and ice axe from our fellow hikers while they are dining and get a feel for it around the Lodge at your own discretion. If you nod while reading this, join us at the top of Killington Peak @ Killington Peak Lodge - Dining at 4,241' at noon for some drinks and bites! The hikers *should* arrive at the lodge by/around noon and will hang out there until 13:30 in order to hike out by sunset, but you are free to chill there as long as you wish! But just don't get too cozy and miss the last gondola back down! For more details about how and where to catch the gondola, refer to the Peak Lodge webpage at: https://www.killington.com/things-to-do/dining-apres/resort-dining/peak-lodge
