TRAVEL

BY AIR

Most of Vermont is accessed by four major Interstate Highways. Interstates 87, 89, 91 and 93 all provide easy access to Vermont. Don’t stress about the journey, there are plenty of Citgo stations across New England to help fuel your trip.

There are many ways to fly to Vermont and the Northeast. If you are visiting a northern or central resort, Burlington International Airport (BTV) is a great option. Direct service is available to BTV from Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Detroit, Newark, New York City, Philadelphia, Toronto and Washington, DC.

In addition to the Interstate system, Vermont features a well-maintained network of local roads and State Highways. US Routes 2, 4 and 7 provide convenient access points east to west and north to south. The state works tirelessly in the winter months to ensure ease of passage through the many networks of roads.

BY RAIL

Vermont ski resorts can also be accessed from Montreal, Canada (YUL), Albany, NY (ALB), Manchester, NH (MHT), Hartford, CT (BDL), Boston, MA (BOS) and New York City (JFK & LGA) airports via a rental car, bus, rail or shuttle service.

SKI VERMONT PRO TIPS:

AIRPORTS

✈ If you do not have a car, you can also get to Vermont by Megabus, Greyhound or even the Jitney. Check with the resort you are visiting to see if they have any specific bus offerings or tour groups. Make sure to check your drive time online and seasonal directions as some roads close for the winter season and we don’t want you to end up in the wrong spot!

Vermont’s ski and snowboard resorts are closer than you may think. You can be at a Vermont resort in 2 hours from Montreal, 3 hours from Boston and 4 hours from New York City.

Amtrak offers two routes with daily service to Vermont. The Ethan Allen Express provides daily service between New York Penn Station and Rutland, VT. This train provides great access to southern and central Vermont. The Vermonter provides daily service between Washington, DC and St. Albans, VT via Philadelphia, PA and New York City and then heads through Connecticut and Western Massachusetts completing its journey through scenic Vermont all the way to St. Albans near the Canadian border. The Vermonter provides access to almost every resort area in Vermont.

If you are looking for a scenic route, make sure to check out the network of Vermont Byways. Route 100, which runs along the valleys of the Green Mountains, is often referred to as the Skiers Highway since many Vermont resorts lie along the famous route.

BY CAR OR BUS

In addition to major airports, Vermont has several smaller airports near resorts for a more personalized experience. SKI VERMONT PRO TIP:

If you are flying internationally, spend a day or two in Boston, Montreal or New York City. Vermont skiing and snowboarding is an easy drive from these locations.

SKI VERMONT PRO TIP:

Call your resort ahead of time to find out the best way to get to and from the train stations. Resorts provide shuttle services or can recommend transportation.

BY FERRY We bet you never even knew that you could get to Vermont by water! Vermont’s Lake Champlain Ferries have been providing safe passage across Lake Champlain since 1826. SKI VERMONT PRO TIP:

If you are traveling on I-87, the ferries are a unique way to get across the lake into the Green Mountains, just make sure the ferry you want to use operates in the winter and at the time you plan to cross.
