Peru, Vt. just north of Stratton is a beautiful year round place. Bromley mountain ski resort is nearby and JJHapgood store in Peru are wonderful meet places. A significant shuttle drive to Landgrove, Vt. woohoo, check out some of Vermont's most spectacular estates in this area.
Wildwing ski touring center here too. the day ended on the lovely open fields across from the Landgrove Inn. Great day with Alan Binnick Trail Chief extraordinaire.
