Alright, let's start with something everyone loves - a live concert. Stratton Mountain is set to host its annual Memorial Day Weekend Concert. This year, they’ve got performances from FREEBIRD and Changes in Latitudes taking the stage on Saturday, May 27 starting at 5pm. We're talking about a night filled with good tunes, great company, and the stunning backdrop of Stratton Mountain. So go ahead and secure your tickets now because it's going to be an absolute blast!
Looking to ease into your Memorial Day festivities? I get it! How about taking a relaxing stroll at the Stratton Mountainside Farmer's Market on Saturday? Set in the scenic Stratton Courtyard from 2-5PM (plenty of time to hit up the concert afterwards), it’s the perfect place to enjoy the local Vermont community vibe. From Appalachian Gap Distillery, Taylor Farm Hemp Co, Gem Moon Jars to Ken Ahlering Painting, there's a plethora of vendors ready to showcase their crafts. And did we mention there will be live music from Heavy Nettles? Quite the ambiance, right?
Okay, now let's get the adrenaline pumping. Are you ready to take in Vermont’s breathtaking beauty from new heights? Stratton’s Scenic Gondola Rides offer the perfect opportunity to marvel at Vermont’s awe-inspiring beauty from a whole new perspective. Offered all summer long, taking the gondola to the top of the mountain is the perfect starting point for a leisurely hike out to the Firetower trails, or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, there are plenty of options for longer routes back to the base.
And if that's not enough, the newly opened for the season Stratton Bike Park is ready to add a dash of adrenaline to your holiday. With an ever-expanding trail network, the lift-serve mountain biking at Stratton is on a whole other level. The trail-building virtuosos at Sinuosity have meticulously crafted the perfect mix of flow and speed, with trail riding for all ability levels. Didn’t bring up your bike? No problemo - swing by First Run in the village to gear up from top to bottom.
Are you more of a "chill out and unwind" kind of person? If so, we've got just the thing for you. The Stratton Golf Course offers the perfect balance between relaxation and luxury. Nestled amidst the vibrant greenery of Vermont, it's not just a golfer's paradise, but a true sanctuary for everyone seeking a bit of serenity. A championship 27-hole course in three parts, Mountain, Lake and Forest, a round on the links at Stratton is a golfer’s shangri-la.
Speaking of tranquility, nothing beats Stratton's Mountaintop Yoga classes. Take a complimentary gondola ride to the summit where a relaxing morning flow class awaits. Imagine welcoming the day amidst the beautiful Vermont scenery, channeling your inner peace. It's an experience that you simply can't miss. And that view!
We totally get it if you're already wishing to extend your stay. Good news - Stratton is running a special 'Make it a Long Weekend' package all summer long that has got you covered.
