Most Affordable Vermont Ski Resorts for New Year's 2019

How much is a New Year's ski vacation in Vermont?

Our Vermont New Year's Ski Price Index includes the price of renting ski equipment, a lift ticket, lunch on the slopes, and overnight accommodation.

    Killington Peak is the second highest mountain in Vermont with an elevation of 4,229ft. The Killington Ski Resort is on top of this mountain.
