Snowshoeing

There's more than one way to enjoy the snow

Snowshoeing is one of the most accessible ways to enjoy the beauty and peace of a Vermont winter. All you need are snowshoes, a few layers of warm clothing, and perhaps a daypack filled with snacks to enjoy trails with evocative names like Nebraska Notch in Underhill or Big Bear Loop in Grafton. Whether you choose self-guided trails or a guided tour, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views, fresh air and invigorating exercise. In addition to the Green Mountain Club, which is the resource for the state’s hiking options, snowshoe trails can be found throughout the state, but a few centers and resorts specialize in the sport.
