Scenic Lift Rides

Leave the Fast Pace of Everyday Life Behind

Take in the Views from 4,241'.

The K-1 Express Gondola is now closed for the summer/fall season and will reopen with the start of the winter ski/snowboard season. Click here for details on winter scenic rides.

Enjoy a mile and a quarter ride up the K-1 Express Gondola to the top of 4,241-foot Killington Peak for breathtaking views, access to 15 miles of designated hiking trails in addition to the Appalachian and Long Trails and the Peak Lodge featuring a custom menu and fresh local fare.

If you're looking for a lower-elevation adventure, the Snowshed Express Quad gets you to the top of Snowshed in just eight minutes and from there you can hit the trails.

Tickets can be purchased at the K-1 Lodge (limited services) or Snowshed Lodge. Please check the summer operating schedule for planned dates and hours of operation.
