KILLINGTON, VT June 9, 2004 - Summer travelers seeking a mix of outdoor recreation, cool mountain breezes and extra pampering like massage, gondola rides and quiet dinners for two, should consider reserving one of Killington Resort Villages' new themed package deals.
"We've done all the work for the guest," said Pat O'Connor, lodging marketing manager for Killington Resort. "We created a diverse group of packages that would appeal to various guests, depending on what they are looking for in a getaway. By packaging the activities with the lodging we are able to offer a more attractive price to our guests, and when they check in, all the legwork for their stay is already done. They're then free to enjoy all the region has to offer."
And from gondola rides to Killington Peak, the highest gondola-serviced peak in New England, to fun in Killington's Adventure Center, a round of 18 on one of the region's many golf courses, or exploring the many lakes, streams, antique shops, meandering roads, hiking trails, or bike paths, guests will want more than just a few days in the Killington area.
