Vermont

Vermont is the most rural state in the country and a place unto itself.  I’ve been visiting here for well over 20 years and it would take more than a lifetime to see everything.  There’s great skiing in the winter along with snowshoeing and snowmobiling to name a few things.  Come summer you can hike, bike, swim or just enjoy a farmers market and a great drive along one of the many lovely scenic roads throughout the Green Mountain State.  Fall foliage here is a also a special treat with few places being able to match Vermont for the vibrant colors and amazing views that draw people from all over the world.

Greater Waterbury-Stowe Region:  This region encompasses the Town of Waterbury up through the lovely resort town of Stowe and is the quintessential slice of Vermont that you imaging when looking at a postcard or when planning a trip.  It includes a couple classic Vermont Ski Areas (Stowe and Smugglers Notch), many lovely state parks and lots of great places to see and visit in between.

Mad River Valley:  The Mad River Valley is a great spot and has a lot of the best

features of Vermont in a nice small area that is an easy three and a half to four hour drive from Boston.  Sugarbush is easily one of the best ski resorts in the east with terrain for everyone from great cruising trails to some of the best expert terrain in the east.  It’s also a great place to hike in the summer with lots of great events and lift served mountain biking with the added bonus of some great swimming holes to cool off in.
