Always in Season

Vermont is a Four-Season Destination

Vermont never goes out of season, from spring's stunning flowers to the lush green and high heat of summer to fall's famous foliage to winter's thick blankets of snow. As each season unfolds, it offers new ways to experience a vacation in Vermont. As early spring brings sunshine, head out on skiing trips and sugarhouse visits and mountain biking. Summer brings hiking in Vermont’s lush forests with trail networks connecting historic downtowns. As summer cools into fall, visitors to Vermont are treated to the annual show of bright, colorful foliage, lighting up hillsides in red, orange, and yellow. Winter brings dazzling snowfalls and thick blankets of snow for skiing, riding, snowmobiling, fat biking, and snowshoeing, as well as Vermont’s coziest season as snowflakes make villages sparkly. Explore Vermont’s seasons and decide when you’ll plan your visit.

Fall

Vermont is a place where every fall, even the trees drop everything. Thanks to dense maple foresting, Vermont's fall foliage offers stunning, eye-catching views from the road or a historic downtown. The cooler, comfortable weather brings a fresh, local harvest and abundant recreation opportunities for a trip to remember.

Winter

Winter offers beautiful views and a myriad of outdoor activities – think snowshoeing, ice fishing and world-class performances. When the temperatures get cold, enjoy a cozy evening at a Vermont lodge, bed and breakfast or luxury hotel.

Spring

Vermont is a place where spring is sweet. Warmer weather provides soft snow conditions on the mountain and makes for fresh Vermont maple syrup as sap flows from the our maple trees. As new growth buds all over Vermont and wildflowers begin to erupt in the forests and hillsides, it's a great time to plan a visit.
