So are in Killington, Vermont and you have decided that you are bored with downhill skiing and snowboarding and you want to try something new. How about trying snowshoeing or cross-country skiing? You will get quite a workout and see flora and fauna that you never noticed when you were racing down hill at a fast speed.
Before you begin, you will need to find a good place to go. One of the best places to cross country ski and snowshoe is at the Mountain Meadows Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Center.
Mountain Adventures at Mountain Meadows Vermont
Day tickets for cross country skiing at Mountain Meadows Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Center are only $19, and you can rent a pair of skis for $19 as well. If you prefer snowshoeing, the area has miles of marked trails for you to trek. A trail pass is just $19, and if you need to rent snowshoes, they will be happy to oblige for another $19.
If you prefer something a little more extreme, you may want to try a fat bike. Fat bikes are the latest rage in winter sports. The bikes look something like mountain bikes, and people ride them in the snow. The center rents the bikes for $75 for a whole day, $59 for half a day, and $39 for two hours.
Mountain Meadows Vermont is affiliated with Base Camp Outfitters, a sporting goods store in Killington. The store offers an enormous selection of every kind of ski and boot you can imagine. You can either rent or buy the boots, and the sales staff is extremely knowledgeable and happy to help you select the right equipment. They will also be able to provide you with a mountain guide so you can select the perfect ski trail for the type of skiing you want to do. The store even has a binding bench where an expert can help you find the perfect bindings for your boots and skis.
