Maplerama 2016 – Windham County @ Mount Snow Resort
Jul 28 @ 5:00 pm – Jul 30 @ 3:00 pm

Vermont Maplerama 2016
Windham County, July 28 – 30

Windham County is often referred to as the “gateway” county of Vermont, and the Windham County Maple Sugar Makers Association is proud to host this year’s Vermont Maplerama.
You are cordially invited to attend this three-day celebration, based at the Grand Summit Resort at Mount Snow in West Dover, Vt. from July 28-30, 2016.
Maplerama celebrates Vermont’s maple sugaring heritage, and gives folks an opportunity to learn about the latest technology and industry trends. In Windham County these range from an operation that collects sap the old-fashioned way using horses, buckets and a wood-fired evaporator to a 25,000-tap business utilizing state-of-the-art high vacuum systems, reverse osmosis and a steam-powered evaporator.
