Stratton Mountain Resort's Five-Day Labor Day Itinerary

By Adam LouisAug. 22, 2023

Labor Day Weekend is soon upon us, and what better place to spend it than Vermont's very own Stratton Mountain Resort? From Thursday, August 31 through Monday, September 4, we're not just talking about a mere escape; we're talking about an experience that threads the needle between relaxation and a heart-pumping adventure.

Let's break it down day by day.

Available all holiday long (Thursday - Monday):

Your extra-long weekend kicks off with a panoramic ride up the Gondola. Picture this: a fifteen-minute lift ride (where you’ll enjoy stunning vistas of the late-summer/early foliage coverage below) brings you to the summit of southern Vermont's highest peak. Once at the top, you can enjoy a short hike to the Fire Tower, take a breather and a picnic at the Hubert House deck, or just take a minute to appreciate your dramatic surroundings. On your way back down, spot the iconic summit bear and perhaps snap a photo or two for the ‘gram.

Feeling sporty? Dive into the Mountain Bike Park, tailored for all—from the cautious newbie to the daring downhill veteran. With more than 10 miles of downhill single-track trails, there’s something for everyone.

And if two-wheelers aren't your thing, rev up your engines for the ATV Summit Tours. New this year, this 90-minute round-trip tour will take you up winding mountain trails from the Sun Bowl to the summit and is absolutely exhilarating.

Oh, and don't forget to take breaks—perhaps a stroll through the Sidewalk Sales at Stratton Village? With 30-70% off name brands such as Burton, The North Face, Rossignol, Smartwool, GoPro, and more - you’ll find deals that might just make your jaw drop.

Now, if you fancy serenity wrapped in a scenic backdrop, the 27-hole Championship golf course awaits your swing.

Friday, September 1:

Stratton Mountain Resort Golf Scramble Group on Sunny Day

Start your weekend right with the Stratton Foundation Golf Tournament. Described as one of the top resort courses in New England, you’ll find three distinct nine-hole layouts; Forest, Lake and Mountain. But, it's not just about the game or that picture-perfect setting, it's about the cause. Each stroke supports the Stratton Foundation, which has been impressively stepping up in response to the recent flooding.

Saturday, September 2:

Stratton Mountain Resort - Mountain Top Yoga

Yoga enthusiasts, prepare to find your Shangrila. Start your day with a Mountain Top Yoga session. As you stretch and meditate, you're above the clouds and miles away from any stress or distraction at home. Serenity paired with a view—what more could one ask for?

As evening approaches, it's showtime! Get ready to sway and groove as the one and only The Wailers (yes, that Wailers!) take center stage. Get in the groove with OG reggae, and dance the night away with those iconic classics!

Sunday, September 3:

Stratton Mountain Resort Blues Brews BBQ

If you thought Saturday was packed, Sunday's got its own lineup. Fuel up your morning with another session of Mountain Top Yoga. Once you've found your zen, it's time to gear up for an all-day treat. Blues, Brews & BBQ 2023 promises tantalizing flavors, rocking music, and a selection of the finest local brews.

Monday, September 4:

Wind down your adventure-packed weekend with one final Mountain Top Yoga session, or an invigorating swim in the many local swimming holes. Reflect, relax, and be pumped you decided to make the most of your holiday weekend up on Stratton.

Don't let this Labor Day be just another long weekend. Turn it into a story. An adventure. And remember, tickets for specific events fly off the shelves, so best to grab yours early!

Make the most of a long weekend: Book a Friday and Saturday night stay at Stratton Mountain and get a Thursday or Sunday night complimentary for a true Vermont getaway. Book Your Long Weekend at Stratton
