Still great skiing in Southern Vermont

Posted on: February 19th, 2011 by Patti Eddington

Snow, snow and more snow.  Skiing has been great this year in southern Vermont.  Prospect Mountain is only 15-20 minutes from the inn and boasts 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 offers groomed trails, a great base lodge with a large fireplace, wonderful views and rents cross country skiis and snowshoes.

Though North Bennington reaches 60 yesterday….there is plenty of snow.  Even when there is NO snow in Bennington there is lots of snow on Prospect Mountain.  We assume the skiing will continue well into the Spring in 2011.

Prospect also has special events…tonight is a Full Moon and they offer a moonlight dinner and ski. Should be beautiful.


Vermont Winter Getaways

New Snow…lots of it. 

It is beautiful here in North Bennington Vermont and the sun came out today.  We received about 14 inches, much less than some folks.  I understand Prospect Mountain got about 26 inches.  That should keep folks skiing for a while.  Our ski/snowshoe packages have been very popular this year. 

Speaking of popular packages….  I have extended our Midweek Dinner package into March.  Two nights lodging in your choice of rooms, two breakfasts, dinner one evening at Pangaea Lounge, dinner one evening at Kevins, afternoon refreshments daily & of course endless desserts…all for $349.  Valid every night but Friday & Saturday.

Taking advantage this week of our midweek dinner package was a group who had been friends for 50 plus years (they reserved all three rooms). They had a blast playing cards & games, laughing, drinking, eating and doing a little bit of shopping.  They mostly enjoyed their annual time together here at the Eddington House.  It was a pleasure to have them all and perhaps they will return again to North Bennington for their annual sojourn.
