A Serious Skiing State

Experience a Thrilling Winter Adventure

It’s a special time to be in Vermont. With 20 alpine ski resorts, 30 cross-country touring centers and 7,300 acres of alpine terrain, this is a skier’s paradise. Even if you don’t ski or ride, there’s plenty to do to keep the family together and having fun.

Snowshoeing is a perfect substitute for enjoying the outdoors while getting in a good work-out. Find a Vermont State Park that meets your needs. For you thrillseekers, try snowmobiling. For those that are new to this recreational form of transportation, there is nothing like the adrenaline you get from maneuvering a 600-pound machine through turns, around trees, and over the terrain.

Ice fishing is another hot activity during the cold months. Fishing over frozen bodies of water gives the angler a unique advantage of fishing off-shore without a boat. With many of Vermont's waters open for ice fishing season, the choices are abundant.

If winter is not your favorite season for being outside, that’s ok. You’re not alone. Add some warmth to your winter with music, theater, and dance performances or treat yourself at one of Vermont’s award-winning spas. You deserve this.

No matter which activity you choose to take part in this winter, warm your soul and clear your thoughts by connecting with the natural world around you in Vermont.
