Stratton Mountain Resort - Vermont Hot

StrattonStratton’s wide-array of skiing options and location on the highest peak in Southern Vermont make it an ideal winter getaway. Skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of Stratton’s 92 runs, which are backed by Stratton’s “Perfect Snow” guarantee.

The mountain’s 95% snowmaking in tandem with its location in the ‘snowbelt’ assures skiers of having open runs blanketed by fresh snow. For cross-country skiers, the Stratton Nordic Center provides 35 km of tracked cross-country trails and 50 km of backcountry skiing.

More adventurous snow-goers can play in Stratton's five terrain parks, including the world-famous half-pipe which is the annual site for the U.S. Open Snowboard Championships. If you wish to hone your skill, the Stratton Mountain Training Center offers programs for juniors and adults who are serious about their riding, focusing especially on slalom, giant slalom and half-pipe. World-class ski instruction is also available to children at Stratton.

Just because the ski season ends at Stratton, doesn’t mean the fun stops for visitors to the mountain throughout the summer and fall months. Stratton offers several recreation and entertainment options in the off-season, including: golf and tennis, Memorial Day and Fourth of July Festivities, extensive hiking trails, spa and fitness centers, concert series, shopping, restaurants and more.

In fact, Stratton’s 27-hole golf course has hosted six LPGA events, and the tennis center with 50 outdoor courts and two indoor courts, is consistently ranked among the top 50 tennis resorts in North America. Additionally, Stratton provides access to Vermont’s ‘Long Trail’ – a 270-mile hiking path throughout the Green Mountains.
