The Oldest Cross Country Ski Center In America Is Right Here In Vermont And It’s Amazing
When hear the name Von Trapp, you probably think of the movie based on the true story of this musical family. Yes, the hills of Vermont certainly are alive in Stowe where the Von Trapps landed many years ago, but their legacy didn’t stop with what you see in the movie… The Von Trapps created the country’s first commercial cross country ski center in 1968!
The Trapp Family Lodge is located on 2,500 acres, giving you more than enough room to explore the stunning property by foot, snowshoe or xc skis.
With 37 miles of groomed trails and 62 miles of backcountry trails, it's no wonder why skiers love this spot.
Do you love the story of the Von Trapp Family?

Don’t have your own equipment? No problem! The resort’s Nordic center has a retail shop where you can rent or buy everything you need to spend the day on the trails.
There are trails and terrain for people of all ages and abilities.
And the friendly instructors are ready to show you the ropes.
If you’re looking for something more challenging than the groomed trails, this world class xc center offers excellent backcountry trails to lay your own tracks.
Backcountry gear rentals are also available, and if you're new to backcountry skiing they can get you started with rentals and assistance from their expert staff.
Be sure to make the exhilarating trip to Slayton Pasture Cabin.
Here you can warm up by a roaring fireplace and fuel up on homemade soups, sandwiches and hot chocolate.
You’ll have to work for it, though! The trail to the cabin is tough, but oh-so-rewarding!
Trapps hosts some of the best Nordic Ski Racing the country has to offer!
As well as plenty of spots to take a break. Who wants to build a snowman?
Head over to the Trapp Family Lodge to experience the first xc ski center in the country.
You'll absolutely love it!
