Many areas have had a difficult winter with very little snowfall this year, however, it seems that finally, the snow has begun to fall. There are still plenty of days of winter left, despite what the groundhog may say in the next week. Now is the time to get out and enjoy and one of the best places to ski on the East Coast is Vermont. From challenging to difficult, Bill Bailey Travel invites you to take a closer look at some of the best skiing in Vermont, a great way to spend your winter vacation.
The best place to plan a getaway in Vermont is in the Mad River Valley. It is sequestered away in between two of the best ski resorts on the eastern seaboard, Mad River Glen and Sugarbush. This area offers one of the longest ski seasons in the US. Typically there are vast amounts of natural snowfall and if there’s not, they will make plenty. The skiing terrain is unparalleled between the resorts with over 150 trails, and vertical drops of 7,000 feet. This is a skier and snowboarders dream. For the snowboarders there is a half-pipe and terrain park at Sugarbush’s legendary Castlerock.
This area isn’t just about hitting the fresh bountiful snow though. It’s s perfect destination any time of year and offers tons of activities for you to immerse yourself in the stunning Vermont countryside. You can hike and bike; there are trails for the leisurely stroll and ride to the much more adventurous for the avid cyclers and hikers. You can canoe and kayak on the beautiful lakes and rivers, or just kick back and fish. There are plenty of golf courses for you to hit 18 rounds, or tennis courts for you to play a few games of singles and doubles. Even in winter, there are plenty of great places to shop, dine and even fish if you really like it! The state of Vermont is an outdoor lovers dream and just waiting for you to explore.
Hopefully you will have bountiful snow when you take your excursion to Vermont. If Mother Nature doesn’t help you out, there will be plenty of man-made snow on the slopes, as well as tons of other options to keep you busy and enjoying the area.
