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. Each season offers new opportunities and unique ways to enjoy the Green Mountain State, from mountain biking to hiking to leaf-peeping and exploring Vermont's farms and local food culture.

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.

Summer

Vermont is a place where summer is serious business. With over 75 percent of the state forested, the mountains are lush with all shades of green. Get outside and try hiking, mountain biking, fishing or camping, embrace the fresh air at one of Vermont's many peaks, or cool off in a mountain stream or waterfall. State parks keep us busy all summer long.

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

Vermont is a place where it's good when everything goes downhill. Some say it's the terrain, others, the snowmaking; Vermont is a serious skiing and riding state. The apres is as good as the ski; winter offers beautiful views and a myriad of outdoor activities off mountain – think snowshoeing, ice fishing and world-class performances.
