Sugar Makers Take Pride in Making Pure Vermont Maple Syrup

Springtime in Vermont presents a wide range of weather conditions that make recreating more diverse than almost any other time of year.

As winter slowly fades, Vermont’s sugarhouses steam into action to produce more than 40 percent of the country’s maple syrup. In 2016, the United State had its greatest maple syrup production year on record, and Vermont led the way. Maple Open House Weekend is a rite of spring in Vermont, and a perfect time to enjoy one of our state's top products.

March and April also provide skiers and snowboarders an opportunity to enjoy a final two months of runs on Vermont’s legendary slopes. The long bluebird days of spring and corn snow conditions often make spring the best time of year to ski at Vermont’s mountains and resorts.

With the onset of May and June, warmer weather welcomes in a beautiful, blossoming landscape that springs to life with farmers’ markets, festivals and bicycling on our trails. Long, sunny days provide the perfect backdrop to get outdoors and breathe in the sweet smells of budding trees, flowers and plants. Chirping birds and very long days with sunlight lasting until nearly 9 p.m. make late spring a special time of year to visit Vermont.

A host of high-profile festivals and events that attract thousands of visitors each spring make our state the perfect vacation destination once you’re ready to say goodbye to winter.
