Discover Vermont Maple Winter
Welcome to Vermont Maple during the heart of our winter season! Experience beautiful blue skies, crisp mountain air, and sugar maple trees sparkling with crystals of glittering frost. Maple in winter is the dormant state in which the trees have stored the starch in the root tissues and are awaiting the warmer sunlight of spring to touch their branches.
Sugar makers are out in the woods, often on snow shoes, preparing for the upcoming maple season. It all begins here…in Vermont’s snow covered forests.
While sugar maples are sleeping, Vermont Maple is traveling throughout the state bringing the taste of maple to Vermont’s ski resorts. Vermont Ski Areas Association, the Agency of Agriculture and the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association team up to promote Vermont specialty foods at area ski resorts through participation in Ski Vermont Association’s Specialty Food Days.
Skiers, riders and resort guests can sample Vermont’s unique and tasty treats, including: Vermont maple sugar-on-snow and maple cotton candy, Cabot award-winning cheddar cheese, Westminster gourmet crackers, Green Mountain Coffee organic house blend and others.
Winter is the time for hearty maple recipes!
Sugarmakers invite you to sit in front of a fireplace after an invigorating day of Vermont winter activities such as skiing, snowmobiling, and snow shoeing with a hot Sugarhouse Steamer and a bowl of Vermont Maple Chunky Beef Stew.
