Free in Vermont
Skiing is an expensive habit, but the Okemo Valley of Vermont, near Okemo Mountain Resort, has many free activities to explore when you are off the slopes. Stay on a budget with these free in Vermont family activities.
See the exhibits at The Vermont Institute of Contemporary Arts in Chester. Great for a day when ski conditions aren't ideal.
Go on a scavenger hunt during Lovin Ludlow Winter Carnival and Chester Winter Carnival, both held in February.
More cheese! Visit Crowley Cheese to watch the cheese production and eat free samples.
Learn about historic Ludlow at the Black River Academy Museum.
Warm up by the fire at Jackson Gore Inn, inside or out.
Taste maple syrup at Green Mountain Sugar House. New York recently edged out Vemont in maple syrup production, but Vermont maple syrup is still a mainstay.
