What to do

The resort offers plenty to do all year round. During the winter, the Northeast of Vermont offers fabulous opportunity for skiing. Choose between Burke Mountain Resort and Joy Peak Resort which may be considered the most challenging peaks in the area.

During spring, many tourists explore the area by walking or cycling over Burke Mountain and investigating many of the local trails. Fishing is also a popular option from the spring through to the summer due to the number of rivers the resort has to offer.

If you're looking for something more challenging, many tourists decide to go kayaking or canoeing in one of the many rivers, while keen golfers are thrilled to experience the wide range of golf courses within the local area.
