Southern Vermont Cross Country SkiingPosted on: January 6th, 2011 by Patti Eddington
Let it SNOW…
Happy New Year to all. With a great early snow….19 inches here in North Bennington Village and even more in the nearby Green Mountains, it promises to be a great year to cross country ski and snowshoe.
Propect Mt in Woodford VT (about 15 minutes from the Inn) offers cross country ski and snowshoe rentals and some amazing views. The base elevation of Prospect Mtn. X-C Ski Area is 2250′. This is the highest base elevation of any alpine or cross-country ski area in the state. The high elevation is an important factor in providing consistently good ski conditions at Prospect.
Prospect Mountain maintains 30+ kilometers of trails. When the snow begins to fall, the trails are expertly groomed for both skate and classical cross-country skiing. Most trails have tracks set on either side with a wide skating lane in the center. There are also special snowshoeing and classical skiing trails. Trail difficulties range from beginner to extreme expert.
The Eddington House Inn offers a Cross Country Ski/Snowshoe Package each winter which includes 2 nights lodging, 2 one day passes to Prospect Mt., dinner one evening at Kevin’s, full breakfast and afternoon refreshments daily and of course ..endless desserts. Visit our Packages page for pricing and details.
Hope to see you this winter!
