I’m no downhill skier, but I know a great mountain when I see one. In autumn, Vermont’s mountains are ablaze with shades of crimson, amber and tangerine, amidst the pine and fir.
Likely there are no bad choices when it comes to leaf peeping in Vermont, however the Stowe Gondola SkyRide to the top of Mt. Mansfield commands views beyond compare.
The 15-minute enclosed ride slowly guides you to the peak of Vermont’s tallest mountain and culminates at the Cliff House restaurant. Trust me, you’ll want to grab a beer from the bar and step out on the deck.
