The MSNBC award is the latest recognition for New Life Hiking Spa, fitness and weight loss destination celebrating 17 years in its Killington location. Founded in 1978 by director Jimmy LeSage, New Life is one of the nation’s oldest and most established vacation package programs of its kind.

“New Life focuses on a mixture of hiking, yoga, a variety of other exercise and healthy eating in order to help people begin anew with a lifestyle change that will carry over once guests return to their normal daily lives,” according to New Life.
The Town of Killington is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, boasting some of the nation’s finest skiing, snowboarding and Nordic skiing as well as renowned hiking on the Appalachian and Long trails, which converge in the mountains high above the town.
