Hi all, I really need help because I have never been to Vermont before, only to Gore Mountain in NY.

We are coming to ski mostly, but would like snow tubing and ice skating if possible. All of us are no better than intermediate, and since we are all older now and havent been on skis lately, we might be called beginners again.

What is the best area that wouldn't be too crowded? I would love to find a condo or something, there will be about 5 or 6 of us, all adults.

Any guidance would be appreciated!

Smuggler's Notch has ice skating, tubing, and plenty of beginner/intermediate terrain. Crowds all depend on when you'll be there - weekends and holidays are typically more crowded no matter where you go. Lodging is available too, it just depends on your budget.

Okemo Mountain Resort also has ice skating and tubing.

Are you driving (where from)? Flying into Burlington?

In Southern Vermont Okemo is a good suggestion. Nothing overly difficult there and is a good mountain for beginners and intermediates.

In northern VT you really can't beat Stowe. In addition to skiing there is tons of other stuff do to.

If you want a really "quiet" experience...try Burke Mountain in the northeastern part of the state. It won't be crowded. Fantastic mountain for beginners - you basically have your own separate ski area the way the mountain is laid out. There is not much else up there though besides the skiing. Very quiet, peaceful area.
