Vermont tends to have long, cold winters – the temperature at high elevations is even colder. This is great news for skiers, with plenty of powder on the slopes. Many Vermont vacation rentals have open fireplaces, so you can enjoy cozying up in the cold weather. Fall is also a popular time to visit, with crisp air and colorful foliage, making it ideal for long country walks. There are short summers that can reach up to the low-80s, and mild springs with lots of showers, giving the state a fresh feel.

Natural features

Explore Vermont's forest and mountain landscape

Vermont has several state forests, with mile upon mile of unspoiled scenery. Green Mountain National Forest is great to visit in the spring, when it's lush and green, or in the fall, when it has a blanket of orange-hue foliage. Hiking trails take you past serene lakes and waterfalls, and, during the winter months, the trails are covered in snow, ideal for snowshoeing or Nordic skiing. Reach the state's highest point via a 5-mile trail up Mount Mansfield. Through rocky trails, you'll see Atlantic tundra, covered in hardy year-round florals, before working your way to breathtaking summit views.
