FRESH TRACKS

RUNNIN’ DOWN A DREAM It’s mid-August and I’ve just woken up from a ski dream. I’m sweating from the heat, but I swear I can see my breath, a puff of chilly air crossing over from a dreamy dimension. The feel of sliding on snow clings to my subconscious, but begins to wane as I rub my eyes and come back to reality. The ski dreams start coming frequently around now winter’s pull getting stronger by the day. I get excited by the buzz in the office. “100 days till we ski!” “The countdown is on!” “Winter is coming!” It’s a busy time for us, as we plan fall events leading up to the season and start preparing for our winter travels and snowy adventures. Fresh gear starts rolling into the office in October and we’re full-fledged snow addicts come November – celebrating Thanksgiving slopeside with the best female skiers in the world at Killington Resort. I know the coming of winter isn’t dream-inducing and buzzworthy for everyone, and some folks would even wish it away if they could, but we at Ski Vermont challenge you to embrace the season of snow this year. We have a motto here: Friends don’t let friends sit inside all winter. How could you when there are boundless opportunities for fun and adventure? There is no better way to embrace the winter season than learning to ski or snowboard and Vermont resorts have award-winning learning facilities to get you confident on snow. For those that need the motivation to get back to the 2 SkiVermont.com

slopes, Vermont boasts the best snow in the East and the best “skiers’ insurance” with the most powerful snowmaking arsenal in the world. Off slope and between times on the mountain, the state of Vermont offers everything a traveler could want from famous local brews, ciders, spirits and socially conscious farm-to-table dining, to sweeping views of mountains and farmland with historical icons nestled amongst them. Add resorts’ expanded entertainment options – everything from a beer-serving movie theatre to kid zones featuring arcades, pools, laser tag and indoor rock climbing to romantic yurt dinners complete with sleigh and snowcat rides – and there is something, scratch that, many things for everyone. So, if you’re wondering how to break out of the winter funk this year, give us a shout and we’ll help you out. Our excitement for the ski and snowboard season is so abundant that we are happy to share it, along with our endless list of fun things to do at the best Vermont resort for you. See you on the slopes, at the table or in the arcade this winter!
