Vermont Maple sugaring season is an amazing time to visit, especially here in the Northeast Kingdom. Without doubt, March is the best time to experience the maple sugaring process here in North Country. We will visit a small scale family sugaring operation and taste sugar on snow!
A hearty breakfast is served every morning in our rustic Dining Hall. Choose from hot entrees, baked goods, fresh fruit, dried fruit, yogurt, nuts, homemade granola and other cereals.
STRETCHING AND BALANCE: Awareness of your movement and balance skills will enhance your skiing experience. Join in an exercise session that will challenge your brain and coordination in an effort to increase your strength and balance. GROUP SKI LESSONS: We will continue our focus on proficiency with the "Classic" cross country ski technique, also known as "diagonal stride." Our experienced instructors provide easy to follow advice to skiers of all abilities. Our morning session will continue to progress with the goal of increasing your comfort in navigating our vast trail system.
A hearty lunch buffet with hot entrées, homemade bread, soup, salad bar, fresh fruit and dessert is served daily.
SKI TOUR: Our extensive trail system offers enough variety to explore somewhere new each day. Hope for great snow coverage, but even if Mother Nature doesn't cooperate we have snow-making capability to ensure skiable terrain on our “Core Trail” network. YOGA: Our practice continues with restorative poses and rejuvenating breathing techniques.
Dinner is a catered buffet of home-cooked dishes served family style in our rustic dining hall. Hot entree with a vegetarian option, salad bar, fresh fruit and dessert are offered every evening. You are welcome to bring beer and wine to the dining hall if you wish.
Join together for live music and a sing-along this evening at our “Houghtonanny.” This is local musician Don Houghton’s version of the Hootenanny, popularized in the 1960's. Hootenanny, an old country word for "party," is now better known as a performance of folk songs and dancing at which anyone is welcome to perform for the audience. This has been a wildly popular piece of our Road Scholar programming for the past few years. Bring an instrument if you play and join in, or sit back and rest by the fire! Beer, wine, and locally crafted chocolates are for sale in our main office until 7:00 p.m.
