Killington Resort is not just for skiing anymore. Extreme athletes swap snow for asphalt at the Downhill Throwdown, achieving speeds that rival those reached by their cold-weather counterparts. We’re talking 75 miles per hour. Dozens of skateboarders, street lugers and drift-trike riders from as far as Australia and New Zealand tackle a harrowing, two-mile course. Separated from spectators by a barricade of hay bales, these adrenaline junkies bomb down straightaways that give way to hairpin turns and, sometimes, nerve-wracking wipeouts.
