Quiet and calm with terrain for all abilities awaits
Cross-country skiing has deep roots in Vermont. Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe was the first cross-country ski center established in the Americas, and today, the sport flourishes in Vermont, from paths suitable for all ages and ability levels to backcountry ski trails that offer stunning views and the chance to truly escape. Many resorts offer equipment rentals, and some offer guided tours for an insider's view at Vermont's Nordic skiing scene.
