With 200 trails spanning seven mountains, Vermont’s Killington Grand Resort Hotel is a world-famous ski destination. But there’s plenty to do there in the summer months too—and Amtrak can get you there year-round.
The Adventure Center at Killington, which opened in 2016, offers a wide—and sometimes wild—array of activities: an 18-hole golf course; scenic lift and zipline rides; the Beastcoaster, a 4,800-ft.-long roller coaster that streaks through woodlands, making 360-degree turns; gemstone mining and panning for gold at Roaring Brook Mines; Skye Bump trampoline and bungee jump system; Terra tubing (year-round snowboarding); mountain biking; ropes courses; and fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding on Snowshed Pond.
And all year long, after a day of stimulating sports and views, you can relax in a 75-ft. heated pool, sauna, hot tub or around the fire pit, gazing upon the majestic Green Mountains before retiring to your hotel room, studio, condominium or private home rental at the sustainably built, green-hotel-certified resort.
To travel straight from New York-Penn Station to Killington Grand Hotel Resort, make your Amtrak reservation through Rutland, Vermont, to Killington. If a reservation is made to Killington, Gramps Shuttle is notified and will be at the station to pick up passengers— year round, every day of the week.
