Cross-Country Skiing in Vermont
Quiet and calm with terrain for all abilities awaits
Cross-country skiing has deep roots in Vermont. The sport's history is on display at the Vermont Ski & Snowboard Museum. Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe was the first cross-country ski center established in the Americas, and today, the sport flourishes in Vermont, from paths suitable for all ages and ability levels to backcountry ski trails that offer stunning views and the chance to truly escape. Many resorts offer equipment rentals, and some offer guided tours for an insider's view at Vermont's Nordic skiing scene. There's more than one way to make tracks. The terms "Nordic" and "cross-country" are often used to mean the same sport, but Nordic refers to competitive skiing, while cross-country skiing tends to mean a lower-key version of the sport, more focused on touring and sightseeing. Opportunities to try both abound in Vermont, whether you'd like to race or take in the scenery. However you choose to get out there, Vermont will offer an unbeatable Nordic experience.
