Getting There -- Killington Road, the access road to the mountain, extends southward from routes 4 and 100 (it's still marked on some older maps as Sherburne). It's about 12 miles east of Rutland on Route 4. Many locals inns offer shuttles to the Rutland airport, and Amtrak (tel. 800/USA-RAIL; www.amtrak.com) offers a slow daily service from New York City to Rutland, with connecting shuttles to the mountain and various resorts.

The Marble Valley Regional Transit District (tel. 802/773-3244; www.thebus.com) operates the Skibus, a handy daily, dawn-to-dusk shuttle service between Rutland and Killington daily in winter. Rides cost $2 per person one-way.

Visitor Information -- The Killington Chamber of Commerce (tel. 800/337-1928 or 802/773-4181; www.killington-chamber.org) has information on lodging and travel packages, and staffs an information booth on Route 4 at the base of the access road; it's open weekdays from 9am to 5pm and shorter hours on weekends. For information on accommodations in the area and travel to Killington, contact the resort's lodging service (tel. 800/621-6867) directly.
