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.

Depuis les années 1960, les pentes immaculées du Vermont font le bonheur des fous du ski, les fameux ski bums. Dans ce numéro, nous explorons l'histoire et l'impact durable de ce mouvement, et vous indiquons où aller pour assouvir votre passion du ski.

  • Explore Hidden Wilderness Along the Burlington Wildways

    You might not realize it from the hustle and bustle of downtown, the postwar suburban sprawl of the New North End, or the hip postindustrial South End, but Burlington is pretty wild. Like, Henry David Thoreau/Walden Woods kind of wild. Despite its urban trappings, Vermont's largest city hides a treasure trove of natural wonders. The trick is knowing where to find them.

  • Get a Taste of Vermont at the Burlington Farmers Market

    "Farmers market" and "Vermont" are basically synonyms, right? The Green Mountain State is known for its cheese, its maple and its dedication to local food. And in Vermont's largest city, the Burlington Farmers Market is a community fixture. A trip to the market is a weekend ritual all season long.
