THE BEST SKIING AND RIDING IN THE EAST

Vermont is a historic leader in U.S. snow sports.

It is home to America's first alpine ski tow, built on a Woodstock farm in 1934. It also had the first chairlift in the nation on Mt. Mansfield in 1940, plus the first Nordic ski center at Trapp Family Lodge, and the first ski academy at Burke Mountain. Not to mention, Burlington is headquarters to the groundbreaking Burton snowboards.

Today, Vermont is a true winter destination. This is a serious skiing state, boasting 20 alpine ski resorts, 30 cross-country touring centers and 7,300 acres of alpine terrain. There are 1,269 trails, 176 lifts, and 1,900 km of Nordic trails. Vermont skiing and riding accommodates every level, from the advanced downhiller to the training toddler.

The Vermont Ski Areas Association has resort information, trail stats, lodging info, conditions, plus deals and events for beginners to experts.
