Snowmobiling in Vermont

We Roll Out the White Carpet

Some of the world's best snowmobiling is right here in Vermont. Since 1967, Vermont has maintained a network of more than 5,000 miles of winter snowmobile trails. This system, maintained by clubs throughout the state, is renowned around the world for its pristine conditions and jaw-dropping scenery. With a well-marked trail system linking towns together, readable maps and easy access to amenities, Vermont makes it easy to enjoy this exhilarating winter sport. There are plenty of places to stop along the way for fuel, rest, craft beverages and one-of-a-kind local meals.

Wherever you decide to go, start your journey at the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers website, your resource for information such as rules and regulations, trail conditions and updates, trail-side lodging, gas stations and restaurants. If you're bringing your own sled, be sure to learn what you need to ride in Vermont.

Winter

Vermont is a place where it's good when everything goes downhill. Some say it's the terrain, others, the snowmaking; Vermont is a serious skiing and riding state. The apres is as good as the ski; winter offers beautiful views and a myriad of outdoor activities off mountain – think snowshoeing, ice fishing and world-class performances.
