Description:
Killington Peak is the second highest summit in the Green Mountains and in the U.S. state of Vermont. It is located east of Rutland in south-central Vermont. A ski resort, Killington Ski Resort, nicknamed "the beast of the east," is located on the mountain. Killington is a stop on the Long Trail, which here shares its route with the Appalachian Trail. Traveling southbound on the Trail, it is the last peak until Virginia. A gondola transports skiers and non-hikers to the summit, which is complete with a restaurant.

In 1763, the mountain was known as Pisgah.

Lodging situations have changed over the years from sleeping on barroom floors and barns on the mountain road, traveling up from nearby Rutland or Woodstock, to now over 120 inns, lodges and condominium complexes, with sleeping capacity to bring the Rutland region's tourist population to 60,000 on a winter weekend.
