4 of the Best Ski Resorts in Vermont
1. Killington Ski Resort
Known by many as the “Best of the East”, Killington Ski Resort is leagues above the rest (literally!) with its record-breaking elevation, large skiable area, and intense vertical drop. The mountain has 155 downhill trails and offers an endless list of winter activities. Guests can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, snowshoe tours, scenic gondola rides, and even sleigh rides at Christmastime. Visit their website for tickets and passes.
After you hit the slopes, stop for lunch at one of the many restaurants and cafes at Killington Resort. We recommend Peak Lodge for its delicious farm-fresh fare and stunning views. Diners can enjoy an impressive vista of five states, Canada, and three mountain ranges through floor-to-ceiling windows.
2. Okemo Mountain Resort
Located just a half hour from Killington, this family-run resort has the largest vertical drop in southern Vermont. Okemo Mountain offers 120 trails and is popular with families for its kid-focused activities. Explore terrain parks for all skill levels, 13 miles of groomed trails for cross-country skiers, and the longest superpipe in the East. The resort also recently installed a new six-person chairlift with heated seats, so you can warm up on your way up!
3. Stowe Mountain Resort
One of the most beloved ski mountains in Vermont, Stowe Ski Resort is actually comprised of two stunning mountain areas – Mansfield and Spruce Peak. The mountains boast a combined 116 trails and only 16% of the trails are greens, making Stowe a better option for experienced skier and riders. The resort has six freestyle terrain parks for thrill-seekers and offers 90 miles of groomed trails for cross-country skiing. Be sure to stop in for a relaxing massage at the Stowe Spa after your run!
4. Mount Snow Resort
Located in the gorgeous Green Mountain National Forest, Mount Snow has 80 trails that are just waiting to be explored. Fun green runs that go from the 3,600-foot summit all the way to the bottom are great for beginners. For visiting experts, the North Face of the mountain has advanced terrain and an exciting double-black-diamond trail, Ripcord. But the resort’s most unique feature is Carinthia, an entire mountain face dedicated to terrain parks. Spread over 100 acres, the 12 parks feature rails, jumps, and a superpipe – perfect for some awesome Vermont snowboarding!
