Ski It

Skiers have long known the joys of Vermont Winter in the "Woodstock-Quechee Region," where I-89 and I-91 meet at White River Junction, Vermont. Skiers have enjoyed the exhilarating sport here in the Green Mountains ever since a fellow named Bunny Bertram created a rope link system powered by an antique Model T Ford engine at Gilbert's Hill (now Suicide Six) in Woodstock. That was in 1934 and the modern ski industry was born. Right here.

This area is also close to skiing at Okemo Mountain Resort, located about an hour from White River Junction, where you can enjoy Vermont's very first alpine coaster, the Timber Ripper, operating on a year-round schedule.

Ski it.


Snowboarding, as we know it today, began when a young man named Jake Burton Carpenter started manufacturing fiberglass snowboards out of his garage in 1979 in Southern Vermont.

Today, participants who ski or snowboard co-exist together at Suicide Six, observing a national Skiers and Snowboarders Responsibility Code. And snowboarders are welcome on the same slopes that proudly hosted the first National Snow Snurfing (the original name) competition in 1982.

Is snowmobiling your passion? The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST) maintains a "vast" network of scenic snowmobile trails throughout the Woodstock-Queechee Region. Eighty percent of the VAST trails are on private land, so staying on those trails is very important. Snowmobiling on these private lands is indeed a privilege to be respected.

It's easy to access VAST's trails. You will need a valid trail pass, state registration, and insurance. You can also take a guided tour from one of Vermont's many snowmobile tour operators. You do not need to re-register in Vermont if you are already registered in your home state or province, but you must join a local club and purchase a trail pass.

Snowmobile Clubs of the Woodstock-Quechee Region include the Route 100 Snow Travelers in Rochester; the White River Valley Ramblers & the Barnard Mountain Viewers in Bethel; the Corinth Sno-Scramblers in Bradford; the Frigid Frost Fighters in Chelsea; the Middle Valley Polar Bears in East Randolph; the White River Valley Sno-Goers in Randolph; the Sharon Snowmobile Club; the Justin Morrill Drift Skippers in Strafford; the Snow Coasters in Thetford; the Tri-Town Trail Travelers in Turnbridge; the Topsham Ridge Runners in West Topsham; the Newbury Border Riders in Wells River; the Upper Valley Snow Packers in West Fairlee; the Bridgewater Sno-Zippers; the Ridge Climbers in CS Royalton; the Hartland Hill Hoppers in Hartland; the Long Hill Snowmobile Club in South Woodstock; and the Hurricane Riders in White River Junction.

Glide It

The Woodstock-Quechee Region is a great place to enjoy cross country skiing. Gliding across pastures, fields, and through the woods on cross country skis is as serene or exciting as you want it to be.

Some wonderful old New England inns have great access to cross country skiing, such as the Woodstock Inn & Resort in Woodstock.

Love It

You can choose to unwind or windup after your day in one of the most relaxing and romantic places in the world. One of our favorite inns is located in the Woodstock-Quechee Region: Lake Morey Resort, located high above the Connecticut River in Fairlee.

Most winter days are pleasantly cold. Enjoy the sun when it pokes through beautifully once March rolls around, offering a truly delightful spring skiing experience.

And when you see the sun or moon sparkling on the Vermont fields of snow, or glistening on the ice of the Connecticuit River, the photograph in your mind never will go away. It's easy to say, "I love you" in Vermont Winter.

Love it.
