Winter in Vermont is always great and the skiing is the best in the NOrtheast during a good winter. I go every year. Last year we went to The Equonix Spa which was very realxing, shopped at the outlets in Manchester, and enjoyed a day of skiing at Bromely (great for beginners). I personally love Mt. Snow. Alway a fun time and leave the slopes at 2pm to get a spot for happy hour which is a blast !!!
