    • 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.

      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.

    • Must-Do Autumn Activities: Hikes, Harvest Fests and Art Hop

      Love art? Hop on over to Burlington's Pine Street in early September. The artists' studios, galleries and post-industrial business spaces lining the colorful corridor reinvent themselves as exhibition sites during the city's 26th annual South End Art Hop, a three-day flurry of art activity and appreciation.

    • Ticket to Rides: All's Fair at Vermont's Long-Standing Summer Festivals

      A Ferris wheel towers over the Champlain Valley Exposition, its steel spokes illuminated by gyrating patterns of multicolored neon lights. Aromas of fried dough, cotton candy, beer and straw bales intermingle in the languid summer air. Sunburned teens in tank tops and jean cutoffs snap selfies along the midway while one of their friends in a baseball cap hurls sidearm pitches at a dunk tank, trying to douse a heckling clown.

    • Rock On: Vermont Folk Rockers Are Sitting Pretty

      In the showroom attached to Jim Geier's Starksboro woodshop is one of the first rocking chairs he ever made. It was built with construction materials salvaged from his job renovating houses, and its dark wood, earthy rope and solid silhouette betray its 1970s origins.
