January 2017 is Learn to Ski and Ride Month in Vermont!



In the spirit of spreading the love of winter to new enthusiasts, Ski Vermont is once again offering a $49 package for beginner skiers and snowboarders.  That package includes a beginner area lift ticket, professional lesson and rentals!

Here in Vermont we have some of the best instructors and plenty of terrain for those starting out, so whether you're looking to break out onto the slopes for the first time or looking to transition from skiing to snowboarding, or snowboarding to skiing, there's no better time to do it than in January (any day except MLK weekend).  And fellow Vermonters, did you know that your 5th grader can ride or ski for FREE this whole season?  Check out Vermont Fifth Grade Passport

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail













Attended the Friends of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail annual meeting the other night where I was reacquainted after many years with Eva.  She and her husband own a delightfully successful business, Lamoille Valley Bike Tours.  They specialize in electric bike tours and rentals.  We can pack up a Thistledown Inn picnic lunch to go and you can set out on your day's journey with a relaxing pedal.  Plan now for your summer                                                              2017 getaway!


Snow is flirting with us now.  The LVRT is also used for walking, hiking, xc skiing, and snowmobiling.  The Green Mountain snowmobile Co. will handle all your snowmobile rental needs including personalized service, equipment, and guides.  So git on out on the trail for an outdoor tour this winter!
