The state highway map has a list of the prettiest towns in Vermont. Woodstock used to have, maybe they still do, a sign that said it was the "prettiest town in Vermont".

Jay has the most snow on average in Vermont. The ski resort near Jay averages 300" per winter. Knowing how to speak french is helpful. The west gets more snow on average than Vermont.

from the movie Baby Boom -
tourist in Vermont general store to husband: "this store is so cute"
husband: "honey, the whole state is cute"

Woodstock is a pricey place to live....but there may be towns on the outskirts that would suffice. Bridgewater possibly...I have no idea what part of the state gets the most snow..but the higher the elevation the possibility increases. Ludlow would be another area to consider. If you live anywhere in VT, you will be rewarded with a snowy winter.

Defining the "prettiest" town is subjective. It's all what you yourself deem to be aspects that make a town pretty. Myself, I like to see the traditional towns with a village center, historic and maintained buildings, surrounded by a nice blend of countryside of farms and forest. The geography, namely hills, leading up to higher peaks also falls into my aesthetic preference. With this in mind, virtually every part of the state has such towns. Some have seen better days, but it is unique to explore off the beaten path to find hidden treasures. The more popular resort towns still have authentic vestiges of the their past pre tourist history, but quite a bit is fabricated to achieve and promote a certain image. Nothing wrong with this, but it's just the way it is. As far as snow amounts, it's proportional with the elevation of the town. Towns with highland exposures alongside the Green Mountain range receive more snow. I live in virtually the highest elevation of town and when I get 3 to 6 inches snow it's not uncommon that the town center is devoid of snow and we are only talking a traveling distance of 4 to 5 miles.

A town well up in the mountains will have more snow and for more of the year. Here in Rutland on Thanksgiving there was really no snow on the ground. Went hunting in the green mountains, about 20 minutes away and well up in elevation after a lengthy hike...plenty of snow up there, perhaps not deep yet but covering things...just to illustrate my point. Mountains, not valleys, for snow...
