5 Best Ski Resorts in Vermont, USA

Something genuinely nice about the Vermont area is that it offers many ski resorts. There are many different mountains, and each of them will offer a different type of experience. When deciding where to go skiing, you need to ask yourself a few questions such as “am I looking for an all-around resort?” or “am I looking for something that would be suitable for children?”. It would help if you considered whether you are looking for someplace cheap or expensive as the cost varies greatly between resorts.

One major thing to consider when visiting Vermont is that some ski resorts do not operate during the summer months, but others do. It is important to explore each area and find out what they are all about before planning a vacation. You will find that certain areas are suited for children or adults or couples or families.

The best ski resorts in Vermont, in my opinion, are Spruce Peak Ski Resort, Sugarbush Resort, Jay Peak Resort, Okemo Mountain Resort, and Smugglers’ Notch. All these resorts offer a different variety of skiing. Vermont is known for its numerous groomed trails and amazing scenery.

Okemo Mountain Resort

One of the reasons that people love Okemo is because it has a variety of options. The mountain has 60 trails and over 100 acres of terrain. The scenery is beautiful as well, with untouched forests, shimmering lakes, and scenic landscapes. This mountain is perfect for families because it offers many different amenities such as a café, an indoor ice rink, and the Snowflake Express. The slopes are very safe, which is a big reason that many people go to Okemo. Okemo also offers tubing and ski rentals for those who want to take their experience to the next level.

Jay Peak is another great ski mountain in Vermont offering something for everyone. It has 34 trails, over 40 acres of skiable terrain, and 190 runs, all nestled in pristine forested mountains. You can even ski in the summer. There is also a tubing park and a kids’ area to keep the kids busy. The mountain has friendly condo rentals, family-style dining, and great Alpine skiing. The best part about Jay Peak is that it offers over 50 nights of entertainment, from the outdoor ice rink to the indoor nightclub.

Sugarbush Resort

I love Sugarbush because it is absolutely beautiful. It offers both Downhill and Cross-Country skiing as well as snowboarding. I also like that it has three mountains, each with something different to offer. The best time to visit Sugarbush is in March or April because you can enjoy spring skiing outdoors on one mountain while enjoying the summer activities on another mountain, such as swimming or golfing on a third mountain.

One of the reasons that I love Smuggler’s Notch is because of the variety. The mountain has 23 trails and 70 acres of terrain. The scenery is beautiful and includes a flowing river, stunning vistas, and tons of trees. Mountain biking trails are also located nearby, so you can easily enjoy biking after skiing or snowboarding. Smugglers’ Notch also offers fantastic lodging accommodations for you to rent or purchase a house.

Spruce Peak is my favorite ski mountain by far because it has so much to offer for all skill levels and family memberships, and youth programs. You have many different choices when it comes to skiing, but you do not need a lift ticket to ride the chairlift. The mountain offers skiing for all ages and all abilities, as well as snowboarding and tubing. The resort has a daycare center that offers low-cost childcare in the winter months. The mountain has fantastic dining opportunities, such as its legendary pie shop called the Puff ‘n’ Stuff Bakery. There are also many activities for children to enjoy outside of skiing, such as ice skating, horseback riding, and sleigh rides. It also offers many affordable condo rentals for those who want to stay longer than just one night.
