Vermont experiences heavy snowfall in winter, creating excellent downhill and cross-country skiing opportunities, drawing both local and international snow-lovers. Vermont has a number of popular ski resorts such as Stowe, Killington, Sugarbush, Jay Peak, Mad River Glen, Okemo, and Stratton. The snow season is extended at some of the resorts, most notably Killington, by world-class snowmaking systems, ensuring that Vermont's ski season is long and the quality on the slopes is consistent. It is generally possible to ski in Vermont from mid-October until as late in the year as June. Furthermore, many of the resorts stay open in summer and offer a range of activities.

Killington Ski Resort in central Vermont is one of the country's largest ski areas, and generally in the top ten for popularity and visitor numbers annually. Sugarbush Resort also offers extensive ski trails and slopes, and Jay Peak offers excellent off-piste options. Visitors flock from neighbouring Canada, Boston, and New York, as well as the rest of the world, to take advantage of Vermont's world-class ski resorts, accounting for a big chunk of the state's tourism revenue.
