Okemo or Killington? Snowboard them Both from Hawk's World-Class Resort
When it comes to snowboarding, no one's got deeper roots than Vermont, where Jake Burton Carpenter almost single-handedly popularized the sport. Therefore, it's hardly surprising that Vermont has become New England's ultimate playground for catching a ride.
From our terrain parks to our halfpipes, our backcountry to our riding instruction, Vermont has always remained ahead of the pack. And whether you thrive on freestyle or want glades and chutes or extreme riding far from the crowds, we've got you covered.
Riding Programs at Okemo and Killington are the Most Advanced in the East
Vermont is also the forerunner when it comes to introducing skiers and novices to snowboarding. If you're thinking-maybe with a mixture of trepidation and excitement-about catching the wave and the fun of this once-renegade sport of teens and "shredders," think about this: Okemo and Killington resorts have led the way in opening their slopes to boarders, and in innovative riding instruction and programs.
Both resorts have got the experience and know-how to do it right-and more importantly, how to keep it fun-which is exactly what you would expect from a state that has always been on snowboarding's cutting edge. Not surprisingly, as home to Burton Snowboards and some of the nation's best riders, Vermont is also the place in the East to learn how to push the envelope, from riding epic windblown and steeps to jumping cliffs and cruising the glades. So if you're searching for the East's snowboarding heaven don't wait. Catch your next ride in Vermont: it's as close to paradise as you can come.
