Speed through the snowy landscape on a winter adventure. Snowmobiling is a great way to get outdoors, even in the cold months, not to mention witnessing the simple beauty of a snow-covered Vermont. A guide will take you on a 25-mile tour across hills, through woods, and along straightaways, where you can punch up the speed and really feel the wind in your face.

2. Sleigh Rides

Take a magical ride behind a team of horses. You can get a group together for a jolly time, or choose a romantic ride for two. Jingle bells will ring merrily as you glide over the snow. The sleighs run from December 15 through February 24 and are an enchanting way to experience a Vermont winter.

3. Snowshoeing in Stowe

Take a guided snowshoeing tour in the day or the evening. You can snowshoe through the woods by moonlight or lantern to a cozy cabin and a crackling fire, or take a day trek through the woods near the Ben & Jerry’s factory, followed by a tour exploring how ice cream is made.

Or, rent some snowshoes and head off at your own speed. Recreation Path is a great snowshoe hike.
