We're delighted to have you! BTV: The Burlington International Airport Quarterly is a bilingual magazine — translated into French for our Québécois visitors — that highlights Vermont's recreational, cultural and dining scenes according to the season.

After a dark, cold winter, spring is a true awakening in the Green Mountain State. While the snow can be slow to recede, warmer temps and bluer skies draw Vermonters and visitors outside in droves. In this issue, we'll guide you to the best in spring skiing, dirt-road cycling and city sprinting.

Spring also marks the return of major Vermont festivals. Burlington's next-door neighbor, Winooski, transforms into a citywide stage for Waking Windows. The indie music fest takes place in clubs, cafés, churches and even the center of a traffic circle. And Vermont Restaurant Week presents 10 days of dining deals and fun food events across the state. There's something for every taste.

And do feast your eyes on some art while you're here. In this issue, we feature Vermont artist Johnny Swing, whose large-scale coin furniture and architectural lighting are on exhibit this season at the Shelburne Museum. BTV also profiles Anna Marie Gewirtz, the new executive director of Burlington's Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. 

If you're just passing through Vermont, we hope you'll be convinced to return for a longer stay. Use this magazine, too, as a guide to the airport and on-the-ground transportation options.

While you're waiting for takeoff, the Burlington International Airport aims to make your stay a pleasant one. Please have a look around and enjoy its amenities and services, including a yoga space, breastfeeding rooms, charging stations, free Wi-Fi and local art. Locavore crêperie the Skinny Pancake has café locations before and after security to keep you happily fed whether you're coming or going.

We thank you for flying BTV and hope you'll come back to see us soon. Let the beautiful city of Burlington and state of Vermont amaze you.

Nous sommes ravis de vous accueillir! BTV : Le bulletin trimestriel de l'Aéroport international de Burlington est un magazine bilingue, traduit en français pour nos amis québécois, qui met en valeur les attraits récréatifs, culturels et culinaires du Vermont, selon la saison.

Après un hiver lugubre et froid, le printemps sonne un véritable réveil dans l'État des Montagnes vertes. Même si la neige tarde à disparaître, Vermontois et visiteurs se précipitent dehors pour profiter du mercure à la hausse et du beau ciel bleu. Dans ce numéro, nous vous dirons quelles sont vos meilleures options pour le ski de printemps, le vélo hors des sentiers battus et la course urbaine.

Le printemps marque également le retour des grands festivals au Vermont. La petite voisine de Burlington, Winooski, se transforme en vaste scène à l'occasion de Waking Windows. Ce festival de musique indépendante prend d'assaut les clubs, les cafés, les églises et même le centre d'un rond-point. Ne manquez pas non plus la Semaine des restaurants du Vermont : 10 jours d'aubaines gastronomiques et d'événements culinaires ludiques dans tout l'État. Il y en a pour tous les goûts.

Ne négligez pas le plaisir des yeux pendant votre séjour. Dans ce numéro, nous vous présentons l'artiste vermontois Johnny Swing, dont les meubles en pièces de monnaie et les luminaires architecturaux aux proportions monumentales sont exposés cette saison-ci au Shelburne Museum. BTV met également en vedette Anna Marie Gewirtz, la nouvelle directrice exécutive du Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, à Burlington. Voyez ses suggestions de sorties au Vermont à la page 29.

Si vous ne faites que passer au Vermont, nous espérons que vous voudrez revenir pour un plus long séjour. Utilisez également ce magazine pour vous orienter dans l'aéroport et guider vos choix de transport terrestre.

L'Aéroport international de Burlington tient à rendre votre attente aussi agréable que possible. N'hésitez pas à faire le tour des installations et à profiter des nombreux services : studio de yoga, salles d'allaitement, bornes de recharge, Wi-Fi gratuit et art local. La crêperie locavore Skinny Pancake est présente avant et après la sécurité pour que vous puissiez vous restaurer à l'arrivée comme au départ.

    Certain cities are practically synonymous with the festivals they host. When a music lover thinks of Austin, Texas, the next thought is likely South by Southwest. Indio, Calif.? Coachella, of course. For Winooski, Vt., that festival is Waking Windows.

    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.

    Johnny Swing made his first chair in 1987. The dramatic "Tack Chair" looks like a pile of oversize nails, perhaps a vague relation to the iconic seat featured in HBO's "Game of Thrones." Never mind its prickly exterior, sitting on it is a different story: The saucer-size rounds of steel are as comfortable as can be.
