Sugar on snow

From The Blog Weekend Fun: Maple Madness & More

It's maple season here in Vermont and this weekend there is no shortage in ways to celebrate it. Enjoy maple on snow, maple popcorn, and other delicious maple inspired tastings from chefs and businesses around town at Saturday's annual Maple Madness or simply stop by a local sugarhouse to see how it's made. 

Not into the sweet sap? Not to worry, we have rounded up all the movies, crafts and more for those looking for activities that aren't quite as sweet. And with the snow sticking around, there is a plethora of outdoor snow adventures to explore. For a full list of all our favorite snow activities, visit our Things To Do snow sports page.
