Vermont is a great place to spend the holidays. Enjoy a fresh, Vermont turkey dinner at Thanksgiving at any one of many cozy Vermont restaurants and inns. Winter farmer’s markets and craft fairs offer a variety of things to see and do. Black Friday comes right on the heels of Thanksgiving and is a great time to explore many small Vermont towns local shops or walk along Burlington’s Church Street, where if you’re lucky and stick around late enough, you can take part in the annual Christmas tree lighting. If the weather God’s are with us, snow will be in the forecast and skiing and snowboarding will thrill people of all ages and skill levels. Maybe even enough snow to enjoy some horse drawn sleigh rides!
Vermont is a very special place to live and work. But also an exciting vacation destination just about any time of year. Today is November 7, 2014 and it’s blustery, cold day with snow forecast for the mountains and valleys. Vermonters are hustling about in hopes of getting their snow tires installed, in preparation for an inevitable winter that is on the way, perhaps sooner than most of us anticipate. From all indications, it looks like it will be a great winter for skiing and snowboarding.
Whether you’re on a long term Vermont winter vacation or simply a day visit to one of our many fine Vermont ski resorts, the after ski (or snowboard) hours of relaxation can be equally refreshing and fun. If you’re fortunate enough to be stuck in Vermont during a snowstorm, that is the perfect time to find a warm fireplace and snuggle up with a book and a hot chocolate. The perfect time for Vermont ghost stories and legends. No vacation gets better than this!
