Killington heats up summer event schedule

Can’t miss events include the Fox US Open of Mountain Biking and the Killington Wine Festival.

Vermont Business Magazine Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest four-season resort in Eastern North America and a POWDR company, charges into summer with a loaded events lineup including golf tournaments, mountain bike competitions, food celebrations, free concerts and more. Summer attraction passes, including the year-round Beast 365 pass, are available so you don’t miss a minute of the fun. 

“When the snow melts, we switch gears at The Beast and celebrate all the great things summer in Vermont has to offer,” says Killington Resort events manager Mike Sutcliffe. “We’ve got a packed agenda of family-friendly events and no shortage of on-mountain activities planned for the warmer months. New this year is the Play Forever Mountain Clean Up presented by Pepsi and we are especially excited to welcome back Alex Showerman for the Foundation Women’s Freeride Progression weekend.” 

The action kicks off on Memorial Day weekend with the Total Archery Challenge at Pico Mountain and the Killington Stage Race culminating in Killington. Can’t miss events include the Fox US Open of Mountain Biking and the Killington Wine Festival, and the action continues all the way through October with the annual Harvest Faire during Indigenous People’s Weekend. 

All summer long, bikers will enjoy regular Bike Bum races every Wednesday afternoon beginning June 29 and the Divas of Dirt group rides every other Friday. Golfers can join our Michelob ULTRA League Nights on Thursdays beginning June 13 and play in tournaments including the Killington Classic on September 20. 

Everyone is invited to hear great live music with the return of Cooler in the Mountains, our free summer concert series presented by Kona Big Wave, happening on the lawn at Snowshed every Saturday this summer starting June 29.
