Vermont is the perfect state for skiing! 19 of the US athletes competing in the Winter Olympics in Sochi were born and raised in Vermont - the heart of New England. The necessary requirements for an exciting day on the slopes are definitely met. Located in the gorgeous Green Mountains you'll find the highest peak in Vermont, Mount Mansfield, with a height of 4393 ft (1.339 m). The resort Killington, also called „Beast of the East“, is extremely popular and with 140 slopes also the largest resort in the state. Because the resort manages 6 terrain parks, the freestylers among you will feel most at home. Freeriding fans should check out the resort Sugarbush. The backcountry provided by six different summits invites you for some exciting deep-snow fun. Families on the other hand are going to enjoy the smaller resorts such as Mad River Glen or Smuggler's Notch.
Cross-country skiers will find Vermont to be a real paradise: countless intriguing tracks lead through the hills of the raw and untouched Green Mountains. But even off-piste there are tons of activities waiting for you. You have winter hikes, horse sleigh rides, wellness and many other fun and exciting events to look forward to.
The best way to reach Vermont is to take a plane to Burlington International Airport. It's even easier when traveling via New York.
