WinterWinter is a wonderland. Snowy vistas come to mind; first tracks, skating ponds, sleigh rides, and cozy fireside dinners. Our region has an award winning reputation for seasonal celebrations, and exquisite fine dining to ring in the New Year.


Bromley is all about family, with award-winning kid specific progams and terrain diverse enough to keep mom and dad entertained, too. Ski together, board together, learn together, then relax at the cozy base lodge. Stratton offers slopes for all levels plus access to snowmobiling and outstanding snowshoeing trails. Don’t miss an opportunity to explore the mountain village with its alpine flair, shops and restaurants and a lively après ski scene. Killington, Pico and Mt. Snow are a little further from our front door but we can arrange transportation if you would like.

X-Country Skiing & Snowshoes

Hildene, Wild Wings , and Stratton’s Nordic Center are our favorites. You can rent equipment, choose from dozens of groomed trails, and experience the peace of Vermont in the winter.

Skating & Family Fun

Riley Rink in Manchester is a world-class skating rink with rentals available for all levels. It has a fun community atmosphere. Seek more unique adventures, too, like a horse drawn sleighride or a guided dogsled tour. Ask us to help you make arrangements!

Manchester Merriment is a six week celebration of Southern Vermont’s festive wintertime culture. Named a Top 10 Winter Event by the Vermont Chamber, you can visit Hildene, decked in Victorian finery, or take the kids on the Elf Express! Also various performing arts events and family activities throughout the season.


You’ll find local meats and cheeses in our area restaurants all year long. When the stars are twinkling and the snow covers the ground, there are a few dining experiences that are perfect for the season! We love Silver Fork, Chantecleer, and Mistral’s. Also, the cozy New England warmth of the Dorset Inn and Ye Olde Tavern. Londonderry’s SoLo Farm & Table is a destination drive, but offers an impeccable menu and fireside cocktails that can’t be beat. Explore the Stratton Dining Guide!
