The resort at Pico Mountain has come a long way since it opened on Thanksgiving morning in 1937. It was a blustery day, and skiers held tight to a 1,200-foot towrope powered by a Hudson motorcar engine as they rose up the mountainside and tried to get reception on their rotary-dial phones. Today, the mountain is striped with 52 trails and seven lifts, including two high-speed detachable quads. Gentle learning terrain beckons newbies, smooth cruisers give intermediate skiers an easy ride, classically narrow New England steeps entice beginning and intermediate skiers, and a double-black-diamond trail challenges advanced athletes. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers interested in tricks can use the jumps, boxes, and rails in the Triple Slope terrain park, and the Snow Sports School sharpens the skills of first-timers and seasoned pros alike.
Although the resort has advanced in size and technology, it maintains a personalized, small-mountain charm. The trails all converge at one convenient central base area whose lodge boasts a sports center with a heated pool and a sauna. Guests can grab a beer and a burger or slice of pizza beside the crackling stone fireplace at the Last Run Lounge before retiring to their hotel room or condo.

Sculpted through scenic mountainside terrain, Green Mountain National Golf Course spans 6,589 yards of arching fairways and multi-tiered greens. Engulfed by dense tree lines and rising mountain faces, the course's narrow fairways call for a cautious approach, and those boldly teeing off with a driver or 17th-century musket may end up hacking their second shot out of the woodsy rough. As golfers traverse the course, elevated tees, greens, and cresting fairways give way to panoramic views, letting golfers glimpse the contoured terrain and drink in ancient rock formations shaped by glaciers and the species of colossal paleontologists that ruled the continent prior to their extinction. A full-length driving range, short game practice area, and putting green fine tune players' club-wielding prowess, and a fully stocked pro shop offers up equipment and gear to help guests loop the links in style. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Length of 6,589 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 72.1 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 138 from the farthest tees * Five tee options
Killington Peak soars more than 4,000 feet high, giving it the longest vertical drop in New England. While naturally a major ski destination, the mountain keeps visitors active in warmer months too, with championship golfing as well as wine and music festivals, hiking, and disc golf. The North Star Lodge encourages exploration in any season by helping wanderers set up base camp in its resort and using its outdoor pool—heated to a steamy 102 degrees year-round—to soothe snow-swept muscles and ward off abominable snowmen trying to show off their water wings. Accommodations range from traditional hotel rooms to jacuzzi suites, but all include complimentary HBO and WiFi. Before heading outside to the picnic area or free shuttle to Killington's base, where barbecue grills nestle amid pine groves, guests can head to the lobby for free coffee and tea, served fresh 24 hours a day.
