United Way Days at Killington Resort & Pico Mountain Raise $35,000
Killington Resort and Pico Mountain have raised more than $35,000 for the United Way of Rutland County over the past six years through our United Way Day promotions. The summer United Way Day promotion offers guests an opportunity to participate in Adventure Center Activities at Pico Mountain, and K-1 Gondola-served hiking and mountain biking at Killington for a minimal donation to the United Way.

For opening winter weekends at Pico Mountain, we have donated the proceeds from hundreds of Pico Express Cards to guests who make a donation to the United Way.

The United Way of Rutland County is one of 1,400 United Way organizations in the country dedicated to helping those in our community that need support through the work of our partner agencies. The UWRC is the largest non-governmental fundraiser for local services in our local community.

Rise Above Grant
Killington strongly supports future generations of skiers, snowboarders, thinkers and leaders who attend our local Sherburne Elementary School through the Rise Above Grant. To date, we have provided more than $12,000 in funding and matching grants toward programs that provide educational experiences above and beyond the ordinary, including SMART Board technology, Lego Mindstorms and enhancements to the music and science curriculum.
