With the invention of the snowmobile, snowshoeing became less common, being looked upon more as an activity one would do only out of sheer necessity. That is, until the concept of snowshoeing changed, making it a ‘sport’ rather than a means of transportation. Snowshoeing races are now an annual event in Killington, and other Vermont vacation resorts. A leisurely walk through the woods on a pair of snowshoes can be an exhilarating experience, and something the entire family can enjoy.
Enjoyed by visitors of all ages, Vermont snowshoeing venues are as varied as the terrain they traverse. From easy to moderate treks over meadows and mountains, to Burlington’s 300-mile Catamount Trail, Vermont offers snowshoeing terrain for all ages and skill levels.
Many of Vermont’s mountains have easily accessible peaks affording panoramic views of snow-covered New England countryside – even as far as Canada’s distant mountains.
