    • History Abounds in the Lake Champlain Islands

      Summer in Vermont is fleeting, a maxim those who live here know all too well. Vermonters also know that one of the best places to enjoy the warm weather is the Champlain Islands, a string of five sparsely populated towns in the northern reaches of Lake Champlain. You don't need a boat to visit the rocky beaches and cow-dotted countryside: The islands are connected to the mainland — and each other — by bridges.

    • Taste Your Way Through Burlington During Vermont Restaurant Week

      Terroir is a French word often used in the winemaking world: It refers to the set of environmental factors — soil, climate and sunlight — that imbue grapes with their distinct flavor. But the word has wider applications. Travelers in search of Vermont's unique terroir can get a taste of place simply by dining at one of our many fine restaurants.

    • Slalom, Cycle and Sprint Through Vermont This Spring

      What's better than a late-season bluebird day of skiing? A late-season bluebird day of skiing with maple syrup. Since 1939, the Mt. Mansfield Ski Club has hosted the Stowe Sugar Slalom. Now one of America's most recognized alpine races, the two-day event coincides with the tapping of the state's maple trees — a sweet tradition. More than 1,000 racers and upwards of 600 spectators have turned out in years past to hit the slopes in festive attire inspired by the season. Relax afterward at a hillside barbecue with live music. A local delicacy will be served: maple syrup on snow, paired with a pickle!

    • Eternal Winter: How Vermont Photographer "Snowflake" Bentley Got His Nickname

      Vermont is, of course, known for its snow. The white, fluffy stuff is beloved by skiers and landscape painters alike, each year turning the Green Mountain State into a winter wonderland. While we tend to think of snow in its accumulated form, one Vermonter made his name by getting very, very close to the singular crystals: Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley of Jericho, a 19th-century farmer-turned-photographer credited with the discovery that no two snowflakes are alike.

      As four-time Olympian Larry Damon famously said, Stowe's annual Race to the Cabin is "a pretty easy race; there's only one hill." Yes, but that hill entails a 1,000-foot elevation gain in just five kilometers. Racers tackle the uphill course, climbing deep into the woods to the finish line at Trapp Family Lodge's Slayton Pasture Cabin, where hot soup, sandwiches and a toasty fire await. The record race time? Seventeen minutes. For visitors who'd like to take things slower, the cabin is open daily in winter, and the lodge's 2,500 acres include 37 miles of groomed trails and 62 miles of backcountry trails for cross-country skiers of all levels.

    • Shacksbury Cidermakers Celebrate Traditional and Wild Apples

      Anyone taking a leisurely back-road drive to enjoy Vermont's foliage is sure to spy some old apple trees: gnarled and stooped, tangled in the hedgerows or standing near an old farmhouse. Many of these forgotten trees still bear fruit, but few people pause to investigate their scabbed and misshapen apples in shades of gold and green, or red with chestnut streaks.
