Review of the Best Vermont Ski Resorts

Vermont and Snowboarding

Vermont is said to be the birthplace of snowboarding. While some debate the accuracy of this, Vermont is undoubtedly home to one of the largest and most enthusiastic factions of snowboarders in the country. This makes Vermont snowboarding vacations some of the most fun and rewarding to be found in the United States.

Bromley Mountain Ski Resort

Bromley Mountain resort is one of the country’s oldest running ski resorts. Founded by beer heir Fred Pabst Jr., Bromley Mountain has everything to offer the family of snowboarders, from daycare to…beer gardens! 63 trails cover 163 scenic acres all six miles East of Manchester.

Burke Mountain

For a family-friendly resort that does not skimp on the Black Diamond trails, head for Burke Mountain resort. This mellow and under-populated resort is home to the Burke Mountain Ski Academy, one of the most prestigious ski schools in the world. Take in a lecture or two, or just take in the scenery.

Magic Mountain

Magic Mountain resort is where the locals ski. Recently re-opened, this resort was originally founded in the 1960’s by a real Swiss, Hans Thorner. This gives the surrounding area the feel of a quaint little Alpine village. Rent a chalet and cozy up with the locals for a genuine Vermont experience.

Mount Snow

Mt. Snow is one of Vermont’s biggest and most popular resorts, boasting 476 acres of snowmaking and 23 chair lifts. More than just a ski resort, Mt. Snow is an all-around vacation spot with a golf course, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, on-site lodging and skating rinks. Geared towards families, Mt. Snow is the Disney World of ski resorts.

If you live in Vermont, you better learn how to snowboard and if you snowboard, you better learn Vermont. Vermont is a sort of snowboarding Mecca. No American snowboarder can go through life without at least one Vermont snowboarding vacation.
