Welcome to Burlington — and Vermont

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.

As Lake Champlain's gently lapping waves slowly freeze in place and snowfall coats the landscape in a layer of clean white, Vermont reveals new opportunities for outdoor adventure. Its pristine slopes have beckoned so-called "ski bums" since the 1960s — and, in this issue, we explore the history and lasting impact of that movement. And we point you in the right direction for some ski bumming of your own.

Don't have a need for downhill speed? There are myriad other ways to get outside and enjoy our winter wonderland, from ice skating to sleigh riding. We've rounded up some of our favorite activities close to Burlington.

Of course, you'll need to head inside and defrost afterward. For that, Burlington offers a number of hot spots with warming cocktails, roaring fireplaces and indoor entertainment. And when it's time to lay your head on a pillow, cozy overnight options abound.

Read on for an itinerary of what to do, see and sample in and around Burlington. 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.

  • 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.

    There's no better way to take in the spectacular beauty of Burlington, the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks than from Lake Champlain. And, short of owning your own sailboat, yacht or fishing vessel, taking a cruise aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen III is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get out on the lake.
