Recreation in Vermont’s Four Seasons

Four Season Recreation in Vermont

There’s no shortage of things to do in Vermont, regardless of the season. Outdoor recreation and activities abound in the Rutland Region! Alpine and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, ice skating on a frozen pond, and hiking are popular recreational activities all winter long. Spring and summer is a time to enjoy our lakes, rivers, streams, mountains, hiking trails, rock climbing, and golf courses. When was the last time you cooled off in a good old-fashioned swimming hole with a rope swing? It’s never too late! Try kayaking or canoeing in our calm, mountain lakes, hiking our trails to breathtaking mountaintop vistas, or relaxing with friends at one of our critically-acclaimed golf courses.

If the weather isn’t in your favor for a nice day golfing, try Stonehedge Indoor Golf, Rutland County’s only indoor/simulated golf venue! Year ’round we highly recommend you try our region’s outstanding Indoor Climbing Facility at Green Mountain Rock Climbing Center or enjoy their fabulous Outdoor Guide Service at Vermont Adventure Tours
