Snowshoeing

There's more than one way to enjoy the snow

Even if you don’t ski, there are ways the whole family can get out into Vermont’s snowy wonderland. Snowshoeing is an easy, elegant way to enjoy our fields and forests. All you need are snowshoes, a few layers of warm clothing, and perhaps a daypack filled with snacks. Strap on your snowshoes and enjoy trails with evocative names like Nebraska Notch in Underhill or Big Bear Loop in Grafton. Choose self-guided trails or a guided tour—either way, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views, fresh air and invigorating exercise.

In addition to the Green Mountain Club, which is the resource for the state’s hiking options, snowshoe trails can be found throughout the state, but a few centers and resorts specialize in the sport. Try Blueberry Hill Ski and Snowshoe Center, Mountain Top Inn & Resort, Bolton Valley Resort, Woodstock Inn & Resort, Ole’s Cross Country Center, Viking Nordic Center, Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Stowe Cross Country Ski Center, or Trapp Family Lodge.
