Vermont experiences heavy snowfall in winter, creating excellent downhill and cross-country skiing opportunities, drawing both local and international snowlovers. Vermont has a number of popular ski resorts such as Stowe, Killington, Sugarbush, Jay Peak, Mad River Glen, Okemo and Stratton.
The snow season is extended at some of the resorts, most notably Killington, by world-class snowmaking systems but it's generally possible to ski in Vermont from mid-October until as late in the year as June. Furthermore, many of the resorts stay open in summer and offer a range of activities.
Killington Ski Resort in central Vermont is one of the country's largest ski areas, and generally in the top ten for popularity and annual visitors. Sugarbush Resort also offers extensive ski trails and slopes, and Jay Peak offers excellent off-piste options. Visitors flock from neighbouring Canada, Boston and New York, and around the world.
