It wasn't just skiing that has roots in Vermont. Snowboarding, as we know it today, began when a young man named Jake Burton Carpenter started manufacturing fiberglass snowboards out of his garage near Stratton Mountain in 1979. Of course, Jake is the namesake of the market-leading Burton Snowboards Company, with its headquarters in Burlington.

Today, participants who ski or snowboard can co-exist together on most of our mountains, all observing a national Skiers and Snowboarders Responsibility Code. Snowboarding lessons are offered at Vermont's ski schools with professional snowboard instructors.

Look for terrain parks at most resorts. These are fun places on the mountain slopes where riders - even relative beginners - can learn and practice tricks.

Is snowmobiling your passion? The Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST) maintains a "vast" network of scenic snowmobile trails throughout the Burlington REgion of Vermont. Eighty percent of the VAST trails are on private land, so staying on those trails is very important. Snowmobiling on these private lands is indeed a privilege to be respected.

It's easy to access VAST's trails. You will need a valid trail pass, state registration, and insurance. You can also take a guided tour from one of Vermont's many snowmobile tour operators. You do not need to re-register in Vermont if you are already registered in your home state or province, but you must join a local club and purchase a trail pass.

Snowmobile Clubs of the Burlington Region include the Malletts Bay Lakers in Colchester; the Saxon Hill Riders in Essex; the S.C.A.T. in Hinesburg; the Iroquois Sno-Beavers in Hinesburg & Huntington; the Arrowhead Mountain Snowmobile Club in Milton; the Richmond Ruff Riders; the Green Mountain Snow Cats in South Burlington; the Williston Hill Hawks; and the Bolton Valley Mountain Climbers.

Love It

You can choose to unwind or windup after your day in one of the most relaxing and romantic places in the world.

Most winter days are pleasantly cold. Enjoy the sun when it pokes through beautifully once March rolls around, offering a truly delightful spring skiing experience.

And when you see the sun or moon sparkling on the Vermont fields of snow, or glistening on the ice of Lake Champlain, the photograph in your mind never will go away. It's easy to say, "I love you" in Vermont Winter.

Love it.
