The excellent blog Happy Vermont recently posted a list of Vermont ski trails with wonderful views, and we want to share it with followers. Remember -- breathe in the mountain air and enjoy the view while you’re at a stop; pay attention to the terrain when you’re moving! (Probably didn’t need to tell you that, eh?) Another great resource is SkiVermont.


Smugglers’ Notch trail Drifter, located on Madonna Mountain

 Drifter features breathtaking views of Sterling Mountain trails, as well as dramatic views of Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s tallest peak. Map


Okemo trail Dream Weaver, located in the South Face area

The view from the top of the Dream Weaver looks southward, offering views of ski trails at three neighboring ski resorts in the distance: Magic, Stratton, and Mount Snow. Map

The scenic Willoughby Gap can be seen from almost anywhere on Burke Mountain. With clear weather, you can catch views of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington and the Presidential Range as you come across the ridge. Map

Views stretch from nearby Mount Equinox and Bromley Mountain to the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. Map


Bromley Mountain trail Runaround

The summit of Bromley is your chance to enjoy views to the west of Mount Equinox and the mighty Dorset Mountain. Map

A stunning view that stretches north from Smugglers’ Notch over to Stowe’s Middle Mansfield area, where you’ll see a glimpse of the black diamond Bypass trail. You can see the “chin” of Mount Mansfield and Stowe’s iconic red gondola. Map


Killington trail Great Northern

See neighboring ski areas, including Stratton, Okemo, Magic, Pico, and Ascutney. On a clear day, the view opens up to New Hampshire’s Presidential Range. When you reach the Snowdon area, at the intersection of trail Royal Flush, you can look back at Killington Peak, the K-1 Gondola, and the Peak Lodge. Map
