Skiing is a favorite winter activity in Vermont, and our resort is within a five-minute drive of one of the best places to enjoy it: Okemo Mountain Resort. Enjoy complimentary transportation to and from Okemo as a guest of Castle Hill Resort and Spa or The Pointe Hotel. Many other popular ski areas in Central and Southern Vermont - including Killington, Ascutney, Bromley and Stratton - are also located within a short drive. Be sure to check out our Ski and Stay Package to enjoy premium value.
If skiing is not your thing, don't worry, because there are still plenty of winter vacation activities found throughout Southern Vermont this time of year. You might opt for sledding, ice skating, taking a sleigh ride, indoor golf lessons, indulging in the spa, shopping, taking a snowmobile tour, or antiquing.
If you are visiting with us in early December, you can take advantage of one of the top 10 events in Vermont: “An Overture To Christmas.” Typically held the first weekend in December, it features a number of local festivities - including Christmas Bazaars, organ recitals, Green Mountain Railroad's Santa Express, a variety of holiday-themed contests, children's events, and, of course, Santa's parade.
Ludlow, Vermont is entirely decked out for the winter holidays and - with the twinkling lights and snow-covered mountains - it is the perfect spot for a romantic proposal!
If your spouse or partner is a skier, let them enjoy the slopes while you go shopping! Ludlow has a variety of boutiques and shops, or you can head to Manchester Center — within 45 minutes of the resort — which features outlet shopping including Coach, Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, Carter’s, Dana Buchman, Armani, Nautica, and many others.
Then again, you can always stay at the resort, sip a hot chocolate,
curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book, or even take a nap…
