Killington Express Card
Skiers and riders can save every time they ski or ride at Killington and Pico this season and enjoy the convenience of skipping the ticket windows and going directly to the lift with the new Killington Express Card!

The Killington Express Card provides “pay-as-you-ski” flexibility.  The card costs only $24, works like a season pass (with the skier/riders picture on it), and is linked to a credit card.  The first time each day the Express Card is scanned at the lift, the credit card is automatically charged the discounted rate. The Killington Express Card available for purchase throughout the 2008/09 season at any ticket window.

 • Save $10 early/late season and regular season Saturday/holidays
 • Save $20 off Adult tickets, $10 off Young Adult, Junior/Senior tickets regular  season Sun-Fri excluding holidays
 • Save $10 Thurs-Mon at Pico Mountain

For those that plan to ski/ride three to eight days this season at Killington and Pico, the Express Card is a great option.

Killington Countdown Card
Skiers and riders can save 10 to 15 percent off the regular season one-day rate with a Killington Countdown Card in 6 or 10–day increments.  You’ll enjoy the best rate on non-consecutive day lift tickets and the freedom to use the card every day of the season. 

The non-transferable Countdown Card works by presenting the card and a photo ID at any Killington ticket window.  Skiers will then be issued a ticket for the day and the visit will be deducted from the card’s balance.  Also, the dollar-value of any unused days at the end of the season may be applied to the purchase of next year’s Countdown Card. 

The Countdown Card is perfect for skiers/riders who visit during regular season and holidays six of more days, but not enough to warrant a season pass, and value the lowest available price available on a one-day lift ticket.

The Killington Countdown Card available for purchase throughout the 2008/09 season at any ticket window.
