Courtney DiFiore, Killington Resort’s communications/PR and social media manager, still pinches herself from time to time to make sure it’s all real. Having grown up, played and worked in the mountains of the Northeast, the prospect of making her living at “The Beast” always was something she dreamed about.
After all, Killington is known worldwide for its extensive skiing and riding — 92 miles of terrain spread across six mountain peaks (including Pico) and the most expansive lift network in eastern North America. DiFiore is equally excited to share everything Killington offers in summer and fall — including an 18-hole championship golf course, the Snowshed Adventure Center, 35 miles of mountain biking trails, 15 miles of hiking trails and much more.
As she finishes her first full year on the job, the adventure that is Killington continues to inspire her. New England Ski Journal caught up with DiFiore during the resort’s busy summer/fall season to get her thoughts on what makes Killington/Pico so magical — in every season.
New England Ski Journal: I understand when Killington posted for your position last year, you were pretty quick to respond?
