Skiing has always been a favorite winter pastime in Vermont. With the abundance of winter ski areas throughout the state, it's no wonder Vermont is the premiere skiing destination on the East Coast. Ski areas of Vermont include:
Cochran's Ski Area
Mad River Glen
Middlebury Snow Bowl
Many of the country's best skiers come from Vermont. A few notable Alpine Skiing Olympic Medalists include William "Billy" Kidd, born in Burlington, Vermont; Andrea Lawrence, born in Rutland County, Vermont; and Barbara Cochran, born in Richmond, Vermont.
If you're a skier (or you're thinking of learning), Vermont is the place to be. Vermont ski resorts have something to offer everyone from the expert skier to the beginner.
