Skiing & Winter Sports

Vermont has been known for its excellent skiing since back in the early nineteenth century and that tradition continues on today. The town of Weston is smack dab in the middle of the lower half of the state of Vermont which puts it close to these seven major resorts:  Okemo Mountain Resort, Bromley, Stratton, Magic Mountain, Killington, Pico Mountain, and Mount Snow. Alpine skiing and snowboarding is the number one reason people come to  visit us  from all over New England and beyond. Each ski resort offers its own distinct and unique flavor and style to meet your skill level and lots to do to keep everyone interested even if you don’t ski.  All of these resorts offer skiing and snowboarding, along with lesson programs and rental equipment.  We have it all, to your large style ski resort  to the small intimate family friendly mountain. Enjoy the outdoor winter experience and the best of what Vermont has to offer, a trip that  you will  remember for years to come.
