NEMS Sise Cup Finals Weekend

Killington Logo

We are excited to be closing out our 2022-23 race season on March 17th & 18th at one of the most well-known resorts in New England - Killington Mountain Resort. Killington has taken center stage for the last six seasons, playing host to the FIS Women's World Cup races immediately following Thanksgiving. With crowds topping 35,000, it is fair to say that Killington knows how to put on a high-caliber event. 

Also known as The Beast, Killington is one of the largest resorts in the East, boasting an impressive amount of terrain for all skiers and riders to enjoy. The mountain also is known to have one of the best off-mountain scenes as well. With plenty of lodging, restaurants, and off-mountain activities, Killington is a great option for everyone to enjoy. So get your friends and/or family together and come for the races, stay for the party, and have yourself a really fun weekend!

Where to Eat:

The Killington access road has many great spots to fill your appetite. The new K1 Base Lodge also provides plenty of options while you are up on the mountain. 


Dunkin & Starbucks - There are no Dunks or Starbucks at Killington. The closest Dunks & Starbucks is located in Rutland, about 20 minutes away. If you are coming from the East, Quehcee has a Dunks, although it might be closed for renovation. Lebanon is your best chance. Take the last exit before going over the Connecticut River Bridge. 

Access Road Options:

  • Back Country Cafe - Towards the base of Access Road. A good sit-down spot to grab a bit to eat in the morning. 
  • Killington Market & Deli - Great spot to pick up a breakfast sandwich, or a sandwich for lunch. The location is also a small grocery store. 
  • Sunup Bakery - Great spot for coffee and/or a pastry. They also have bagels and breakfast sandwiches. Does get very busy!


There are a number of great spots located on the access road. 

  • The Rivershed - A newer spot. Great food and atmosphere. Live music at bar. You can't go wrong here! 
  • The Foundry - You can't miss this building! The dinner menu is a can't miss as well. Simply delicious! Grab a table with friends or find a seat at the bar. 
  • iPie Pizzeria - If you are looking for something quick and easy, iPie is a great option. They make a mean pie and offer a number of different slice options. Fun Fact: They take Bitcoin! 
  • Sushi Yoshi - Great spot for Apres Ski or to grab some sushi. If you are looking to crank up the fun, they also offer hibachi!
  • Liquid Art Eatery & Coffeehouse - Something a little different but equally as awesome. Great cocktail menu with lots of healthy dining options. 
  • Killington Distillery - Still on the Mountain - Located inside of The Mountain Inn. Locally made vodka, whiskey, and gin. Craft cocktails are their specialty. Good food menu. Recommend sitting at the bar. Gets very busy. Go early or late. Good to avoid during primetime. 


Killington has the best ski area nightlife scene on the east coast. Many of the restaurants above will be busy for apres ski and well into the night. There are two very well-known spots to check out if you are looking for something different. 

  • Wobbly Barn Steakhouse - Solid place to grab food, but The Wobbly Barn turns into a live music venue at night and gets wild! 
  • Pickle Barrel Night Club -  Looking to turn it up? The Pickle Barrel is the place. Live music with an energetic atmosphere. 

                                                  ** Expect to pay a cover charge of $20 on weekends**
