Hello Vermont Inn family!  It is that time of year again.  Enjoy the most Vermont has to offer by booking your stay at The Vermont Inn and enjoying some of the great winter festivities nearby!


CROSS COUNTRY SKIING: 31K of cross-country skiing or snow shoeing are available just down the road at Mountain Meadows Cross Country Ski. You can even arrange kite-boarding or kite-skiing on the lake!

DOWNHILL SKIING: For downhill enthusiasts there are many opportunities nearby. Less than 10 minutes from The Vermont Inn are two downhill ski resorts: Killington and Pico. Another nearby mountain is Okemo Mountain in Ludlow, Vermont - only 35 minutes away. All three resorts offer loads of skiing and boarding options, lessons, and other activities.

THE CATAMOUNT TRAIL: The Vermont Inn is only about 5 miles from the Catamount Trail on which you can ski the length of Vermont. We're close to Section 13 and you’ll find parking at the trailhead.

SNOWMOBILING: The Vermont Inn is close to the VAST network of snowmobile trails. The Chittenden Dam area is a popular parking spot if you have your own equipment. If not, you can rent from Killington Snow Mobile Tours and take a tour close to Killington.
