Vermont's Top 5 Resorts for your Powder Day 

Throughout history, Vermont has been known for its beautiful Green Mountains and their majesty. Nordic Skiing, Alpine Skiing, Hiking, Snowshoeing, and other outdoor activities thrive throughout New England, especially at the Ski Resorts in Vermont. But having the right conditions plays a major role in the success of these beautiful properties.

As the snow begins to fall and comes time to strap on your ski boots and grab your poles. Don’t hesitate to consider which resorts will get the most snowfall. Vermont Ski Resorts are known for their rigorous mountain terrain and astonishing mountain views. The east coast is known for its powder snow, and some mountains tend to get much more than others. For example, Loon Mountain in New Hampshire averages around 160 inches of snowfall each year. Vermont has received the highest snowfall on the continental US in the past, and having certain mountains open for skiing in May is not unusual. Statewide, Ski Resorts here in Vermont can see an average of 240 inches of snow.
