Northern Vermont Next Week (Dec 28 - Dec 31)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I will be visiting a friend in Burlington next week and want to check out the nearby mountains. Does anyone know if any of the mountains operate shuttles from Burlington to the slopes? I won't have a car and my friend works during the day. Alternatively, does anyone live in the Burlington area and want to do some midweek skiing? It would be fun to meet some of you before the Northeast Gathering and I'd be happy to spring for lunch and gas. Any advice will be appreciated! Oh and this won't be my first time in the Burlington area.

The mountains don't run shuttles that I have heard of. Closest to that would be taking the CCTA Link bus to Waterbury, then the GMTA Route 100 commuter to the Mt. Road shuttle to get to Stowe, or take the Link to Montpelier, and catch the SnowCap Commuter down to MRG or the Bush. Neither is very convenient. 

 

I'd say I could help you with rides, but I work at Stowe, which means I am there very early, I have to catch the staff shuttle, and I am out the door the first moment I can be to get home before the afternoon rush. My schedule isn't really amenable to rides, sorry.

I know that UVM (University of Vermont) sends regular bus trips up to the mountains as well.  You might want to check to see if you can finagle a ride with them?  Can't hurt to ask...

What freeski said about the CCTA buses is probably your best bet.

 

The UVM ski and snowboard club doesn't operate their buses to the mountain over winter break, so that option is null.

You may want to consider a car rental with an agency such as Enterprise. I am certain, with a bit of searching you could find coupons.

I'll keep all of the above in mind. Thank you!

CCTA does a shuttle from the Essex outlets to and from Smuggs on weekends and holidays.  Conditions were a little bony this past weekend, so I've heard:
