GUIDED SKI/SNOWSHOE TOUR
Skip the lift lines and big resort crowds this winter! Join us for a backcountry Nordic (cross-country) ski tour that is fully customized to suit the needs of your group. All experience levels are welcome! We'll teach you the basics if this is your first time. If skiing isn't your pace, come along for a snowshoe tour and traverse deep powder with ease! Guided snowshoe tours start at $108 and include snowshoe rental. Ski tours start at $129 and include rental of skis, poles, boots, and climbing skins. Additional group members start at $28 (up to a total of six). See "Rates" below for details. Available seven days a week.
GUIDED DAY HIKE
Planning to visit the Mad River Valley/Waterbury/Stowe/Montpelier area, and want to enjoy the best local hiking based on season, conditions, and ability level? Take advantage of our local knowledge and backcountry expertise and book a half-day tour for $95, or take on a greater challenge with a full-day tour for $145. Each additional group member is only $15 (up to a total of six). Available seven days a week.
SELF-GUIDED INN-TO-INN WALKING TOUR
From $225 per person double occupancy per night
Our self-guided inn-to-inn walking tours include lodging, meals, luggage transport, and detailed maps and route descriptions. In most cases you will head out the front door of your inn in the morning, and then walk at your own pace until you meet your welcoming hosts at the next inn for dinner. Basic navigational skills (i.e., ability to read a paper map) are required. Available as two- to five-night tours, between Sunday and Thursday.
