Major WINTER EVENTS in VERMONT

Here are some of the most popular Vermont Winter Events and Festivals:

Stowe Winter Carnival: This carnival is held in Stowe, VT, in January and features ice carving competitions, snow golf, snow volleyball, a chili cook-off, and more

Book your Stowe lodging reservations in advance, this is a busy weekend on Mt. Mansfield, and in Stowe Village, many of the better Stowe Inns, Resorts, and Lodges are sold out in advance. Traveling to Stowe by car? Check your tires – Vermont roads can be slick and the state is conserving salt which can make for a dangerous situation if you run into snow or ice with summer or all-season tires.

Winter Trails Day: This event is held in various locations throughout Vermont in January and offers free snowshoeing and cross-country skiing lessons, as well as guided tours. This Vermont Outdoor Event has been a tradition for decades. Check the Vermont Green Mountain Club website to confirm this year’s date.
