Ski Resort Life

Killington Founder Honored for Lifetime of Achievements

Preston Smith guided the Beast from its birth to the age of conglomerates.

Gone are the days when an ambitious young man with a passion for skiing could scope out a snowy mountainside, scrape together some money, and start a successful ski area.

Gone, too, are the days when a state like Vermont would do almost anything it could to facilitate ski-area developments, as it did for Preston Smith, the founder of Killington and 2014 recipient of the New England Ski Museum’s Spirit of Skiing award. Smith was honored for his lifetime of achievements at a dinner at Killington earlier this month.
