Sugarbush was coined "Mascara Mountain" when it opened in the 1960s for the sheer number of celebrities it attracted. While the crowd may have changed slightly, it combines 53 miles of trails across two mountains, an excellent lift system and top-notch snow conditions, all at a reasonable price.

As you can see, there’s an excellent offer of ski resorts in Vermont. One interesting fact about these resorts is that they are all locally owned and operated.
Every resort has a website where you can find all the information you need, and if you’re not sure about something, you can contact them via phone or email address.
Season passes are available for most of the resorts. There are various packages that best suit different needs and budgets. Some of them offer you an all-inclusive discount for larger groups.
All resorts provide detailed info on maps and trails as well as live streams that show their maps and trails. If you watch too many videos, it’s likely that you will fall in love with Vermont's landscape.
You can choose alpine skiing and riding, nordic skiing, and snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, and split boarding. If you’re more adventurous and prefer something extreme, then you should join BV free ride teams.
Free rides are not for inexperienced skiers because skiing surfaces are not groomed, nor do they have man-made features. This type of skiing is also called big-mountain skiing, which, as the name implies, means skiers ski on big mountains.
If you still don't know how to ski, no matter how old you are, or you aren't confident enough in your skiing skills, there are daily lessons. Their instructors are highly skilled and will teach you how. There are special programs for kids as well.
Also, you don't need to worry about equipment. You can rent it, and if you need tuning or any maintenance, there is staff for that.
Concerning food and accommodation, you can select between catered meals or eating at local restaurants and pubs enjoying local meals. There are cafes and bars, as well. Gamblers might be out of luck, as there aren’t many casinos in the area, however, online casinos are always an option if you get stuck inside. For accommodation, you can choose among various hotel rooms, suites, and condos.
If you think this is all, you are wrong. After all-day skiing and enjoyment in the snow, you can relax in jacuzzis, saunas, or heated pools.
In conclusion, there isn't any reason why you shouldn't visit Vermont this winter!
