"Welcome to Sugarbush! Many know us for our award winning terrain (and yes it is some of the best terrain in the East!), but we're much, much more than that. The natural beauty and mountain environment provide a striking setting and a true escape from the everyday. Our home - the Mad River Valley - provides a reason in and of itself to visit Sugarbush."

"Mad River Glen is one of the most unique ski areas in the country, famous for its legendary expert terrain, beautiful and varied beginner and intermediate trails, and, of course, the nation's last surviving single chairlift. The extensive trail system follows the contours of General Stark mountain to a single base area, making it easy for families and friends to ski together."

"A mountain steeped in history, trails were first cut here in 1934, making the Snow Bowl one of Vermont’s earliest ski areas and clearing the way for a legacy of champion Middlebury College ski teams and a host of Olympians.Today three chairlifts-two triples, one double and a carpet lift- serve 17 trails, plus several gladed areas for skiing and riding in the trees. State-of-the-art snowmaking ensures quality snow even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. The mountain’s historic lodge, which was expanded and remodeled in 2003, features the original fieldstone fireplace where intrepid skiers warmed their woolies in the early days before the lodge was built."

"The Green Mountain National Forest in western Vermont and the Finger Lakes National Forest in New York State's Finger Lakes region are Vermont's and New York's only public, federally managed national forests. Both Forests offer extensive multi-use advantages to the public, providing ecological and science-based forestry stewardship, clean water, diverse vegetation, high-value, high-quality forest products, economical and educational contributions, and trail-based backcountry recreation."

"Waubanaukee Indians first named it "Tah-wak-be-dee-ee-wadso" or Saddle Mountain. Samuel de Champlain's explorers in the 1600's called it "lion couchant" or resting lion. The name "Camel's Rump" was used on a historical map by Ira Allen in 1798, and this became "Camel's Hump" in 1830. The park came about as an original gift of 1000 acres including the summit from Colonel Joseph Battell, who originally bought Camel's Hump to preserve the wooded mountainous view from his home. In 1911, care of the mountain was entrusted to the State Forester who managed with the aim to keep it in a primitive state according to Battell's wish."

"After nearly 20 years of growing grapes on our farm, we’ve started down a new path. We’ve narrowed our focus to our best wines— to make them even better. It’s our red wines— among all our whites and rosés recognized for their excellence over the years— that have garnered the most acclaim. Lincoln Peak Vineyard— our land, our people, our vines— combines all the elements to make great reds. We have rocky limestone soil on a hilltop in the Champlain Valley; the long days and cool nights of our northern location; years of experience producing wines that delight palates and defy expectations."

"This gem of a capitol is as open and accessible as one would expect in a state of small towns and villages. The Senate Chamber has elliptical curves and replicated carpet and drapes from the mid-19th century. Representatives Hall is the largest chamber in the State House—restored to its late-1850s splendor. Two stained glass skylights help to illuminate the Cedar Creek Room—with one that features the state coat of arms. "Lincoln" by Brattleboro-born sculptor Larkin Goldsmith Mead, dominates the main lobby of the State House. "View of Montpelier" by James Franklin Gilman (1885) shows the red roof and dome of the 19th century."

"Branbury is located on the eastern shore of Lake Dunmore at the base of Mt. Moosalamoo. The Green Mountain National Forest is its neighbor to the east. Historically, the 69-acre park operated as a farm at the turn of the century, then as a guest house, summer boy's camp and private beach and picnic area. In 1945, it became Branbury (Brandon-Salisbury) State Park. The 1000 foot natural sandy beach, clean, clear Lake Dunmore, and the large open grassy areas make the area very popular for swimming, sunning, or picnicking."

"Nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains our ice cream factory sits on a rolling pasture overlooking the Worcester Range, just north of the small town of Waterbury."
