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!
