Vermont is a serious skiing state – with 19 alpine ski resorts, 30 cross-country touring centers and 6,090 acres of alpine terrain. But beyond skiing and riding, there are countless ways to enjoy our pristine snow, mountains, trails and woodlands.
A trip to Vermont isn't complete without a snowshoe trek through a silent forest, ice skating on a frozen pond or sitting beside a roaring fire while sipping hot chocolate. Warm your soul and clear your thoughts by connecting with the natural world around you in Vermont.
