The 2021-22 Vermont ski season is officially underway! Killington opened today for season passholders and welcomes the general public on Saturday, November 6.  Visit to see what’s open and get snow conditions and operating details.

With Killington kicking off the ski season on the East Coast and more Vermont mountains opening soon – see scheduled opening dates below -- it’s a good time for skiers and riders to purchase their season passes if they haven’t yet, buy lift tickets online and check COVID guidelines at their destination resort.

Travel to Vermont is easy this year, with no restrictions or requirements for interstate visitors (visitors from Canada should check US and Canadian border-crossing requirements prior to leaving for their trip).Skiers and snowboarders can expect the outdoor experience to be back to normal with no outdoor masking requirements and lifts loading at normal capacity. Inside mask recommendations or requirements will vary depending on the resort, so it’s important for skiers to “know before you go” by checking ski area websites and keeping a mask in their pocket in case it is needed when they visit.

Below are the scheduled opening dates for more Vermont ski areas. These dates are subject to change due to weather and conditions and this list will be updated with new information as it comes in.
