Drive of the Week: Vermont Rt 100, the Skier’s Highway

benjerryKnown as the Skier’s Highway, VT 100 is one of the most beautiful winter drives in all of the northeast with gentle winding roads and breathtaking snowy mountains. A trip down VT 100 might be a necessity if you’re taking a ski trip, but it’s also worth a traveling down for its mix of charming snow-covered towns and classic country winter landscapes. Here is your list of what to do and see along your snow-capped journey:

Take the Ben & Jerry’s Factory Tour

The middle of winter may not seem like the perfect time for a little Ben & Jerrys, but we say it’s ALWAYS the right time for a little ice cream. Take a tour of the Ben & Jerry’s factory and then eat ice cream until your brain freezes. Don’t forget to pay your respects to the Ben & Jerry’s “flavor graveyard.”

Feel like a part of the von Trapp family with a stay at their American homestead, still owned by the family today. Wander through the halls re-enacting your favorite Sound of Music scenes, and maybe NBC will put you on TV… Couldn’t be any worse than their last attempt. Of course, the Trapp Family Lodge is a full functioning European-style mountain resort so there’s much more to do than just sing songs.

Quiet little country towns dot the entire length of the 100, so when you’re feeling cold or hungry stop off for some hot cider and down-home cooking. For the best cider along the 100 check out the Cold Hollow Cider Mill.

Hit the Slopes

They don’t call it the Skier’s Highway for nothing… Shred the slopes at Stowe or kill a black diamond at Killington. It doesn’t matter if you’re starting in the north or the south, a ski resort isn’t more than a few miles off the highway.
