Get Out Together
Vermont's Winters Are Perfect for Playing Outside
Rosy cheeks, snow-covered hair, coats, hats and mittens and a twinkle in the eye are the true signs of a winter day spent playing outside in Vermont. Skate on a Vermont ice rink or hop on a fat bike to brave Vermont's snowy paths or rail trails - Vermont's outdoor activities mean big fun in the winter. Grab the family (and your mittens and hats) and get outside to make new memories together in the swirling Vermont snow – then come on back in for some hot chocolate, coffee, fresh, local Vermont food or time by the fire. As things turn festive and thoughts turn to twinkling lights and the comforts of the holidays, choosing and cutting your family's holiday tree can be a wonderfully authentic experience for all ages.
