This is a serious skiing state

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. Like, Jay Peak’s Pump House Indoor Waterpark as one of many examples!



Recreation for every speed

Snowshoeing or Cross-Country Skiing are perfect substitutes for enjoying the outdoors while getting in a good work-out. Vermont State Parks are but one way to explore Vermont’s winter wanderland, but there are also many inns, lodges or bed and breakfasts with their own trail networks. For the thrill seekers, try snowmobiling throughout the VAST trails, ziplining through the treetops at Arbortrek, going for a dog sled, or if you’re really daring – ice climbing.



Cast a line

Ice fishing is another hot activity during the cold months. Fishing atop Vermont’s 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.


Vermont Two Fifty One


Admire the snow (from inside)

Winter recreation nay-sayers can expect to feel the warmth of friendly people gathered together indoors, as well. Vermont’s music, theater, and dance performances are alternatives to a board game by the fire. Or, treat yourself at one of Vermont’s award-winning spas. You deserve it.



Reconnect with your surroundings

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. Vermont’s Two Hundred and Fifty-One towns and cities offer more diversity than you’ll have time for, so don’t be surprised when we welcome you back.
