Spring into Vermont

Find Things to Do and Places to Visit in Vermont

As the land thaws from its deep winter’s sleep, nature awakens—Maple sap flows through the forest, lambs and calves are born, and trees begin to bud. Locals plant their seeds for the growing season and prepare for maple festivals, farmers’ markets, and time-honored events. 

Springtime presents a wide range of weather conditions—where cool mornings turn into warm afternoons and can quickly drop to cold temperatures as soon as the sun sets over the mountain. Packing layers is highly recommended this time of year.  

In March and April, as you travel Vermont roads, you’ll often see steam piping out of a sugar shack located near the forest. This is a great time of year to tour a sugarhouse and taste maple culinary products hot off the press. The tasty treats continue with spring skiing on corn snow—this is when the snow becomes more granular due to the warmer temperatures. Ski resorts celebrate this time of year with live music and après under the sun.  

Come May and June, warmer days welcomes in a blossoming landscape that springs to life with farmers’ markets, festivals, and hiking along the trails. With daylight hours stretching from sunrise to sunset, there’s plenty of time to slow down and enjoy the scenic pastures.
