Winter Wonderland

Winter Activities

There’s nothing like winter in Vermont!
Winter’s blanket of snow transforms Manchester into an exhilarating wonderland. From skiing and cross country skiing to sleigh rides and winter hiking, dive into the wide variety of things to do that make winter in the Green Mountains of Vermont a truly magical time of year.

Cross Country Skiing

Cross country skiing is one of the best ways to experience the winter magic of Vermont. Skis are easily rentable at several shops in Manchester. In no time at all, you can be schussing a trail through Hildene, the Viking Nordic Center, Wild Wings and more.

Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding

The Aspen at Manchester is perfectly located in close proximity to both Bromley and Stratton Mountains, two of the most popular skiing destinations in Vermont. Both offer various terrain and slope grades for all ski levels, including snowboarding and children's ski schools.

Ice Skating

There's plenty of fun to be had indoors! Visit Riley Rink, less than two miles away from the Aspen, for indoor skating fun!

Horse and Sleigh Rides

Nothing says winter in Vermont like a horse drawn sleigh ride at Taylor Farm. Rides last 45 minutes and include a fireside stop to toast marshmallows and enjoy hot cider. Wool blankets are also provided. Come early and pack up a picnic basket of goodies from the farm store!
