In Vermont, it seems that there is always something to do during the winter months. You may be familiar with the area because they are commonly known for their skiing and snowboarding. Still, there are other fun winter activities here that you may not usually experience. Embrace the winter wonderland that is Vermont and try out these four local activities.
Fat Biking at Grafton Trails and Outdoor Center
Take a fun twist on a springtime activity. A fat bike is an off-road bicycle with oversized tires, perfect for cruising around in the snow. At Grafton Trails, you can rent your bike and enjoy miles of groomed trails, taking in all the Vermont scenery.
Tubing at Magic Mountain
If skiing isn’t your thing, tubing is your next best option. You can enjoy scenic views all within the comfort of your tube. There are two thrilling 500-foot lanes that you can zip down. The best part of it all, once you’ve reached the bottom of the hill, you can take the lift back up to the top, just as you would if you were skiing. It’s an excellent activity for all ages.
Night Skiing or Snowshoeing at Viking Nordic
Take your skiing or snowshoeing to the next level by doing it under the lights. Viking Nordic skiing offers a 3km of intersecting trails lit by overhead lights and old railroad lanterns. This activity would be perfect for a date night, considering the path is locally known as ‘The Tunnel of Love.’ Or it’d be a great family bonding experience under the stars.
Vermont Brewery Tours at Fullerton Inn
If you enjoy beer, you’d be excited to know that Vermont has the greatest number of breweries per capita in the United States. You can create your self-made brewery tour, or you can take a guided tour. The Fullerton Inn provides one, two- and three-day tours of local breweries. This experience offers beer lovers the safest and most entertaining ways to sightsee and test out different beers.
