Local Skiing
Sugarbush is one of the biggest resorts in VT and has two mountains: Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen. Lincoln Peak has all the amenities one could seek at a mountain and Mount Ellen has the old-school mellow Mad River Valley vibe in their throwback lodge and no lift lines. Fun fact: Mt Abe behind the River House is the peak just to the south of Lincoln Peak, so on the other side of the ridge is where you'll ski and ride at Sugarbush!

A co-operatively run mountain with nearly all natural snow, and one of the only single chairs left in the world. The skiing here is rugged, challenging, and downright rewarding. The old school lifts means there is still plenty of snow on the trails and the lodge feels like you're hanging out with your friends from a bygone era. General Stark's Lodge often has great local music and the food and beer are so reasonably priced, you may stay longer than you intended.

Great Local Bars
Check out Lowell Thompson playing there every Tuesday evening. Great music to accompany their Taco Tuesday menu. Lowell is a legend in the local music scene and to catch him on such a small stage is quite a stroke of luck.
