Are there usually lots of flight cancellations due to snow storms?
Should I drive to Burlington and fly from there? Your advice is much
appreciated.

Too early to tell.
Winters vary so I guess just keep an eye on the weather.
Also Rutland could be closed and Burlington open or visa versa for example.

Burlington could be cheaper.

I wish AirTran would return to Burlington. Flying from Rutland to Atlanta via Boston (Cape Air/ Airtran)
is surprisingly cheaper than flying from Burlington to Atlanta.

Interesting. I remember flying VT to Alaska was cheaper out of Burlington by a significant sum over flying out of Rutland.

They fly through all kinds of weather. You do know they are very small planes? We've used it a few times and I'm glad it's a short flight. The planes can move around quite a bit and the pilots look like they just got out of high school. My friend had a flight with just him and the pilot, so he got to ride co-pilot. If you like excitement, it's a great flight.
I'd do it again, but my wife, not so much. View it as an adventure!

Are you referring to Cape Air? It sounds like lots of fun to ride as co-pilot. Last time I checked, the price of one flight that I've been watching has gone up $16 in a matter of 24 hrs.

I wouldn't worry too much about snowstorms. If one big enough to close one airport hits, odds are pretty good it's hitting the other airports too.

The better question would be "where are you trying to fly to?"

And if you're willing to drive all the way to Burlington, you should also be considering Albany, as there are actually a few direct flights to places out of the Northeast/Midwest from there, and it's only a few minutes longer of a drive.

Driving to Albany makes sense especially flying south.

Manchester NH is another option.
