Although he won the Pulitzer for a poem called “New Hampshire,” Robert Frost’s heart belonged emphatically to Vermont.

Discover why on this unforgettable winter vacation in VBT’s home state. We’ll spend our days skiing (or snowshoeing) through scenic trails at the Rikert Nordic Center past Robert Frost’s writing cabin in the densely forested Green Mountains, and our nights relaxing in charming inns—including the Trapp Family Lodge, founded by the family who inspired The Sound of Music. We’ll also enjoy a true taste of local culture during vineyard and brewery visits and a maple sugaring tour. Join VBT and experience the magic of the Vermont woods on a snowy evening!
