Stay to Stay Ski Weekends
For guests considering a move to Vermont we have launched a ski weekend option during the winter months. The welcome reception during these Stay to Stay Ski Weekends will take place in three communities that have each partnered with their local ski resort: Brattleboro and Mount Snow Resort (February 22-25) Bennington/Manchester and Bromley Mountain Resort (February 22-25) and Rutland and Killington Resort (March 1-4).
Stay to Stay Ski Weekends are a great option for those who want to spend time on the slopes, or for those not able to arrive in Vermont on Friday evenings. After enjoying a day on the mountain or exploring town, guests attend a welcome reception on Saturday evening during après at the ski resort, where they will meet other local employers, business owners, community leaders, realtors and others who can help facilitate their move to Vermont.
On Monday mornings, as with all the Stay to Stay Weekends, guests will have the option to meet with employers that are hiring, take a driving or walking tour with a realtor, or visit an incubator or co-maker space to meet with entrepreneurs and other professionals.
Representatives from the Rutland area will meet you at Killington Resort. As the second highest peak in the state at 4,241 feet, this mountain is referred to as the "beast of the east" and has welcomed over 39K spectators and athletes from 20 different countries participating in the World Cup of ski racing.
