March is prime time for skiing and riding in Vermont

Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 24, 2011 8:12 am

Head to Vermont’s mountain resorts this spring for plenty of seasonal deals from more sunshine and less crowds to family events, maple festivals and getaway packages.  The average high for March is 37 degress and the low is around 20 and with   daylight savings just around the corner, you can enjoy the slopes with your family or friends later into the day.  Lift lines also tend to decrease compared to peak months of January and February so you can get more turns in.

The snow is fantastic in March as well, Vermont averages more than 1000 trails to explore at their resorts. That, coupled with perfect temperatures make it a great time to hit the slopes or take a lesson and learn how to ski or ride.
