When visiting the Green Mountains prepare to be swept off your feet. The area is well known as the heart of New England ski-country. After all, the Green Mountains are home to four enviable local ski resorts and many more top international ski academies, responsible for more Winter Olympians per capita than the former East Germany. Less initiated Vermont travelers may be surprised to find the Green Mountains also boast the best meats, cheeses, craft breweries, and farm to table food in the US. Travelers in search of more than a skiing snowboarding and epicurean paradise may also enjoy – the Weston Playhouse Company, Vermont Country Store, Walker Farm Theatre, incredible moon rises and star gazing, and retail shopping that includes 40 top retailers from Orvis to Max Azaria. Rentals offer – pools, hot-tubs, fireplaces, private taverns, spa-baths, apple trees, mineral water straight from deep-water aquifers to your bath coffee or tea, inspirational vibes, scenic vistas, pianos, and no airport checkin or rental car lines required.
