We were so pleased to see that the New York Post recently named Killington one of “Five ski towns that are worth visiting in summer,” (the only resort in the northeast!!) alongside the Western resort towns of Park City (Utah), Vail (Colorado), Jackson Hole (Wyoming) and Big Sky (Montana).

In 2008, we (VCRD) brought our Community Visit process to the Town of Killington where over 250 residents set economic development goals that included developing a system for positive Town/Mountain communications and problem solving, and setting a 4‐season economic development planning process with substantial funding from a 1% municipal rooms, meals, and sales tax. Killington Town Manager Seth Webb attributed its success to the will and support of its residents and the series of community planning days we facilitated. As a result of our Visit process, the Town passed a 1% options tax to fund Economic Development and established an Economic Development and Tourism department. Great job Killington!!
