This year NEJETAA will host the 3rd Annual Northeast Region Ski Trip from January 29th – 31st at Killington Ski Resort, the largest ski area in the eastern United States. Due to popular demand we have chosen to stay at the Summit Lodge, the hotel we stayed at two years ago. It features a pub, hot tub, etc. Complementary breakfast is also included. For those who are not interested in skiing, the Killington area offers much to do. There are options for individuals to do cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and other winter activities. Killington Resort is only 35 minutes from the lovely town of Woodstock, VT with many options for eating and shopping; and 20 minutes from the Long Trail Brewery.
