Base Lodges

Here at Killington Resort, there are five base areas to start your day at. To help plan out your adventure, check out the amenities each has to offer - find your favorite or explore them all.

Plus, to help everyone get home at the end of the day, here’s a trick: each of the Killington Base Areas is color-coded at the lodge, the lift, parking lot and on-hill signage. Your lift ticket even comes with a tie that matches the color of the lodge where it was purchased. Use the color coding to help get you back to where you started!

K-1 Blue
Snowshed Green
Ramshead Purple
