This was originally posted in January, but due to the fresh powder topping local mountains, we thought it was worth a re-post!
There’s nothing like driving five hours to Vermont to hear your little ones tell you that they “hate” skiing and they’re not going to do it. Before you spend the time and energy trekking up to the Green Mountain State, get them acclimated to the slopes in the Nutmeg State. Connecticut has excellent trails for both novice and more experienced skiers and group and private lessons for beginners. Rentals available at all resorts, but book early because the classes fill up fast!
