Giveaway: Celebrate Summer with a One Day Pass to the New Adventure Center at Killington Resort #KillingtonMoms

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are strictly my own.


We East Coasters have had a long and dreary Winter, at least it was for me.  Now that Summer is here, we all need to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible and take advantage of what nature has to offer before the wrath of Winter comes to haunt us all (or me) once again.

Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy outdoor activities all year long? That’s where Killington Resort aka “The Beast” comes in. The Beast is a four-season destination on 3,000 acres in the heart of Vermont’s Green Mountains. Home to the longest ski and snowboard season in the East.

If you think Killington is just known for its amazing skiing areas, then you are in for a great surprise! Today, Killington Resort had its grand opening of their new Adventure Center – perfect for Summer activities such as biking, Skye Ropes course, Terra-Maze, Disc Golf, the Beast Coaster and lots more.

But first, let me ask you all a question: Have you ever skied before? If so, please tell me all about it.  I would love to know your experience. I have never skied in my life! I know a few people who hate Winter but enjoy skiing, which to me doesn’t sound “normal.” Since I usually can’t stand Winter, you would never catch me skiing down anything, let alone a huge mountain.  But let me be completely honest — it would be a nice change to try something out of my comfort zone.  As crazy as it sounds, I wouldn’t mind skiing if I went ONCE and if I had layers upon layers of clothing so let’s see….;)

This summer promises BRAND NEW adventures at Killington Resort with eight new attractions and a whole new level of energy. Learn about all of the attractions below:

  • The Skyeride – All new for summer 2015, the Skyeride is 600 feet long, 100 feet high and glides at 30 miles per hour. This comfortable mid-air adventure provides cool mountain breezes, side-by-side seating for two and unbeatable views all year ‘round.skyeride
  • Skye Ropes Course – All new for summer 2015, the Skye Ropes Course stands four-stories high with 42 obstacles to maneuver – it is hours of fun for daredevils, climbers and athletes of all ages.Skye Ropes Course
  • Terra-Maze -The Terra-Maze is located just below the Skye Ropes Course and offers 5,000 square feet of feet-on-the-ground exploration. Check-in at Snowshed Lodge to receive your Terra-Maze Passport, then hit the course running. Find the four check points that spell the word MAZE the quickest, and you’ll win the ultimate prize – bragging rights.
  • Disc Golf – Killington’s mountainside disc golf course offers a fun and challenging game for all ability levels, plus where else do you take a scenic lift ride to start your game?  The course starts at the top of Snowshed and meanders its way back down to Snowshed Lodge. Each round includes a one-way ride up the Snowshed Express Quad to get you to the first tee.Disc golf
  • Snowshed Scenic Lift Ride – Enjoy a mile and a quarter ride up the K-1 Express Gondola to the top of 4,241-foot Killington Peak for breath-taking 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.Scenic Lift Rides

  • Roaring Brook Mining – All new for summer 2015, Roaring Brook Mining is a kid-friendly adventure, providing a great keepsake for miners of all ages. Grab your personal bag of hidden gems and head to the sluice to uncover your treasure.roaring brook mining
  • Motorized Mountain Tours – Hit the mountain with a guided tour on the ride of your choice – all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or Segway! Experienced mountain guides show you the way, provide all the required safety gear and include an introduction to your vehicle of choice prior to hitting the trails. A UTV allows for passengers to ride with a guide or another member of their party – so if you’re not ready to take the wheel, we’ve still got you covered. Segways are for individual use only.atv
  • Snowshed Pond – The pond hosts summertime fishing, kayaking and paddle boards, all with views of Killington Peak. Accessible by both hiking and bike trails, and just steps away from the Killington Grand, the Snowshed Pond offers a tranquil escape for water lovers.  Kent Pond, located just five minutes from Snowshed is a bit larger and offers a beautiful setting for kayaking and paddle boarding as well. Two hour equipment rental and transportation to and from Kent Pond are also available from Snowshed Lodge.snowshed pond
