What Real Life Looks Like Inside The Snowiest Town In Vermont
weather.com, you’ll find the most snow in Vermont on Mt. Mansfield. This is really no surprise since it’s the highest peak at 4,395 feet above sea level. While Mt. Mansfield is located in Underhill, it extends into both Stowe and Cambridge which makes these the snowiest towns in VT. The key here is to bundle up and have fun – hey, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! Let’s take a look at some snowy scenes around this gorgeous mountain.
The views from and around Mt. Mansfield are stunning, but you'll have to brave the snow to see them.

You've got to stay on top of shoveling before it's too late!
The mountain can sometimes get a serious case of hard rime. In the case of this photo, the lifts up the mountain were delayed for a few hours!
Hard rime is a white ice that forms when the water droplets in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. Here they were a few inches thick!
It's often seen on trees atop mountains and ridges in winter, when low-hanging clouds cause freezing fog. The fog then freezes to the wind-facing side of tree branches, buildings, or any other solid objects, usually with high wind and temperatures between 28.4 and 17.6 °F.
Let's take a look at the difference of snow in the area...

The towns of Underhill, Cambridge and Stowe are no strangers to this amount of snowfall though.
While it's cold, and the snow is heavy, it just doesn't get much more beautiful than this.
According to the weather.com article, over the last 30 years, areas in Vermont have received between 5,000" and 10,000" of snow!
