When it comes to East Coast skiing, Killington likes to throw its weight around. Much of Killington's advertising and literature seems to focus on the resort's status as "Beast of the East".
Until this past summer, I'd only visited Killington in her natural state - winter with plenty of snow. A Killington, Vermont vacation in July seemed about as normal as drinking frozen margaritas on a freezing January night.
One day, everything changed. Scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, I saw a friend's photo of Green Mountain National Golf Course. The course itself looked like Heaven's Mouth.
Beautiful, expansive, and not so crowded. I'll save you the details, but Killington is in serious contention when it comes to New England golf vacations. Lots of amenities, and the price is right.
Looking at Killington Peak without snow cover will forever feel abnormal, but drinking a cold beer while playing a round of golf has become a new Killington ritual.
