To the north is Sugarbush and Middlebury Snow bowl, and to the south is Killington/Pico. For the cross-country enthusiast there are many areas with groomed trails to choose from – some with snow making ability.
Bordering one side of our entire valley lies the forever pristine Green Mountain National Forest — a walk on the logging trails offers an unforgettable and picturesque view of the beauty of nature.
In the early spring, strengthened by the melting snows, the White River picks up its maximum volume and speed, for those who want to challenge the “white water”. In the quieter summer months, water level permitting, a leisurely paddle downstream is an enchanting way to spend an entire afternoon. Try tubing down the river.
