Snowshoeing in Vermont
Mary at the Wildflower Inn in Lyndonville, Vermont says “Why do families come back year after year? Perhaps because the warmth of our country inn combines with the amenities of a small resort… Or, the excellent dining experience combined with kid-friendly foods… Or, the abundance of activities… Whether you enjoy snowshoeing through a winter wonderland, sledding, ice-skating, and cross-country skiing right from your door, or downhill skiing just minutes away, you’ll find it all at the Wildflower, along with hot cider and cookies at the end of the day!”
In winter, many lodging properties work cooperatively with nearby ski resorts that offer extensive children’s activities and educational programs.
These programs are geared toward teaching your children about nature and the environment, while training them in the sports of alpine and cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and ice skating.
In summer, Vermont’s beautiful countryside offers families with children the opportunity to learn about nature and the environment with unlimited hiking and mountain biking trails,golfing, fishing, nature walks, and so much more…
