Winter Travel Tips

Winter has officially arrived in Southern Vermont, with a foot and a half of snow in the last week it’s shaping up to be a great season! Perfect timing to pass along some winter driving tips to keep everyone safe and get to where they need to be (VT!).

Who doesn’t love a good powder day? Fantastic for skiing in but not so much for driving. Here are some tips/resources to keep in mind when you’re making the trek up to the Deerfield Valley.

-We’re all big fans of snow tires for a that extra grip on questionable road surfaces. Kind of like trading your flip flips for snow boots.

-Always check the Vermont Dept. of Transportation website for any weather alerts or closures. The  “Plow Finder” is a very cool feature!

Waze is another great app for any road trip. Help out your fellow motorists and report conditions in real time.

-Lastly, be patient and go slow, these mountains aren’t going anywhere. Be sure to ask your resident rental staff for some great powder spots on the mountain! And if you’re snowed in in Vermont and need a doctor’s note for work, we can help with that too 🙂

See you in the valley!

Happy Holidays from the Rentals Only team! We hope to see you here in the valley to enjoy all or part of this festive season. Here are some of our favorite activities to partake in over the next few weeks.

Melissa– Aside from dashing her own horses through snow in her one horse open sleigh of course…Melissa loves taking a few runs down Mount Snow’s snow tubing park, especially fun in the evening under the lights!

Megan-After baking up some holiday treats, a snowshoe trek through the woods is top of her list to unwind during the holidays.

Karen– All about being cozy, watching classic Christmas movies at home or heading to our local theater to check out the latest Star Wars!

Debi– Once she’s done delivering food baskets to local families in need, she hits the slopes!

Most “Instagrammed” Location in Vermont 2017

Very interesting to stumble across an article that laid out the most Instagrammed location in each state this year. Of course The Grand Canyon, Magic Kingdom, and Times Square are sure bets. Any guesses for Vermont’s top spot??

Our very own Mount Snow of course!

See where your home state’s location is here.
