Do you associate a trip to Vermont with seeing the fall colors? Or hitting the ski slopes in the winter? Why stop there? Summer attractions in Vermont’s mountains are increasing and Vermont is going to be a summer destination as well. If you love visiting Vermont in the winter, now you have to come back and check out these summer attractions. Or for Vermont natives, spend some of your summer checking out these great activities! Here is a list of some of the attractions you can visit this summer in Vermont.
There’s nothing quite like the sensation you get sliding down an alpine slide. You start at the top of a mountain peak, and race your way down to the bottom in a wheeled cart on a smooth concrete track; all the while swerving, curving, and swaying in your seat as you navigate your ride down the long slippery chute.
Just as the driver controls navigation of a mountain coaster car, the same is true for navigation of a wheeled cart on an alpine slide — control is in the hands of the driver. So for all you speed chasers looking for an adrenaline packed, gut wrenching, heart-pumping thrill ride, the alpine slide is the ride for you. Regardless of the season — winter or summer — it’s always family friendly, cost-effective, and an excellent way to enjoy fun-in-the-sun.
With the ski season and the school year done, the off-season offers the perfect opportunity to relax before summer begins. The Rockies provide an idyllic setting for such retreats, a chance to get away from the busyness of everyday life. Contrary to what one might think, many ski areas are very active during the warmer months. In fact, you can save a ton of cash in-between seasons because resorts offer great deals as they prep their areas for summer visitors. My friend Sonia recently took a break at Bear Creek Mountain near Avon, Colorado. I’ll let Sonia tell you about her trip.
Recently, we discussed reason why traveling in the fall saves you a lot of money for your mountain vacation experience. So now, let’s consider some incredible fall festivals you can plan your trip around.
Mountain lovers tend to love autumn. We are often quoted as loving winter activities like skiing and snowboarding, and that’s clear, but we also tend to blossom during the fall. Maybe it’s the cool air, the smell of fire pits burning at night, and let’s be honest, we love beer tasting all the new fall brews during Oktoberfest and at the Great American Beer Festival. The fall of 2013 is approaching fast and here are some awesome fall festivals we will be jealous of those attending.
