With hundreds of miles of beautiful backcountry ski trails, cross country skiers can pole their way from village to village stopping along the way to sample delicious homecooked meals at many trailside inns and bed and Breakfast's. For Alpine Skiers, the Adirondacks and Upstate New York boast over 30 ski mountains including Gore Mountain and Whiteface Mountain, offering the steepest vertical drop in the East. In Vermont skiiers can choose from over seventeen major ski resorts including Ascutney, Bear Creek, Bolton Valley, Bromley, Burke ,Jay Peak, Killington/Pico, Mad River Glen, Middlebury Snow Bowl, Mount Snow, Okemo, Smugglers' Notch, Stowe, Stratton, Sugarbush and Suicide six.
