While March in some parts of the country signifies the start of spring, not Vermont! We are still knee deep in snow and experiencing those lovely blue sky days and lengthening daylight hours. Many guests view March as the best time for enjoying skiing and the outdoors with daytime temperatures typically being a little above freezing and evening temps hovering in the mid twenties.
How Long Can You Ski Here? In a typical winter, skiing is still really good through the end of March at both Sugarbush and Mad River Glen and historically Sugarbush has frequently remained open until early May to celebrate Cinqo de Mayo!
April in the Valley areas is a time of change. Snows are melting and Mud Season is upon us. Warmer temperatures start to prevail and for those seeking quietness, this is a lovely time to visit. Just bring your wellies as no matter where your explorations take you, puddles and mud will be found!
May brings Mothers Day, Daffodills and the Gardens back to us. It’s a lovely time to hike, bike and horseback ride or simply enjoy the scenery as absolutely every tree, shrub and flower appears to be budding. It is also graduation season and we always welcome families from GMVS, Middlebury College, UVM and Norwich University over the course of the month.
And the result of spring can be viewed first hand in this video! Our gardens going into the summer months!
