Northern Vermont Ski Areas You Must Visit

Snow-blanketed landscapes and cold temperatures are the ultimate necessities for skiers and riders alike! Vermont is well known for its beautiful natural landscape, and when it comes to winter sports, ski areas are abundant for skiers and riders of all skill levels! Whether you enjoy backcountry glades or carving down wide-open trails, you can find everything you’re looking for in the Green Mountain State. Below are a few of our top picks for ski areas in Northern Vermont!

Smugglers Notch Resort

Located in the town of Cambridge, Vermont, Smugglers Notch Resort is an awesome easy-to-access mountain for the whole family.

Stowe Mounting Resort
One of Vermont’s most iconic mountains, Stowe Mountain resort is located on the same mountain range as Smuggs.
