Plenty of Space to Warm Your Heart

Vermont is your key to unlocking the secrets of enjoying winter. Beyond the ski trails you’ll find delight in walking through snow-filled forests or venturing out on the ice whether to skate or fish. The state’s network of snowmobile trails covers thousands of miles weaving through small downtowns and rural landscapes.  The reasons to head outside in winter are plentiful here. Don’t forget your jacket.
