There’s plenty to do around the slopes after the sun sets—provided your idea of fun revolves primarily around bars and clubs. One such example is Outback Pizza/Tabu Nightclub (2841 Killington Rd., 802/422-9885, www.killingtonsbest.com , pizza $13–19), a convivial multilevel complex that’s a bit like spring break in the mountains. Live bands play from a stage in back, while guests crowd the tiny dance floor up-front.
Meanwhile, twentysomethings looking to party, families, and snowboarders alike crowd Pickle Barrel Night Club (1741 Killington Rd., 802/422-3035, www.picklebarrelnightclub.com ) for live concerts put on by bands from near and far, pub grub, and high-octane cocktails.
Every summer, the hills are alive with the sounds of you-know-what, when the Killington Music Festival (802/773-4003, www.killingtonmusicfestival.org ) stages its “Music in the Mountain” chamber-music concerts.
During the weekend after Labor Day, 1,000 motorcyclists invade town for the Killington Classic Motorcycle Touring Rally (877/245-3976, www.killingtonclassic.com ). Events include a cycle rodeo and bike judging.
