Where it All Began: Cross Country Skiing in Vermont

There is something to be said about taking the time to slow down and soak up the scenery of Vermont. The original way to traverse our beautiful state in the winter began back in the 1960’s with the birth of Nordic skiing. Back then skiers would strap on a pair of cross country skis and set out into the wilderness. Now, outdoor enthusiasts have many options when it comes to winter activities, but as Vermont remains true to its roots, the Green Mountain State continues to offer up well over 300 miles of maintained cross country trails for visitors to explore at their leisure.

That is where Vermont’s world class snowmaking systems and honorable snowmakers come into play. Each year, our ski and snowboard resorts invest in their snowmaking systems and snowmakers, looking for the most efficient and energy saving ways to create the best conditions for our loyal skiers and snowboards to enjoy day in and day out.
