Killington is the major ski resort in the region, but there are other places for winter outdoor activities in local small towns: Weston, Woodstock, Quechee, Montpelier, Waterbury...

BEST TIME TO 
TRAVEL TO THE GREEN MOUNTAINS RESORTS

Precipitation is moderate all year long, but the local weather is severe and snow is very intense in the winter, early spring and late autumn. Most of Green Mountains are under snow in this period.

Low temperatures and intense snowfalls affect the region in the October-Spring period. 

Most visits to the Green Mountains - and to Killington, in particular - are centred in the winter. But if you aren't a lover of winter sports, then late spring-summer-early autumn are the best periods to visit the Green Mountains.


WHEN NOT TO GO TO THE GREEN MOUNTAINS

You should avoid winter - or even November and early-mid spring - if you don't intend to enjoy winter mountain resorts and snow activities. 

Many travelers visit the Green Mountain region to see fall's foliage in Autumn, specially in the first half of October. If you want to avoid crowds skip this period.
