All of us at Vermont.com wish you and your family the happiest of holidays. Pick any ski resort in the Green Mountains and, while Mother Nature has been slow to show her stuff, the snowmakers have been hard at work. Who needs elves when there are snowmakers around? You won’t find the bulk of ski trails open anywhere in the state just yet, but there will be enough action to keep you and your family on the slopes for some early season skiing and riding. Just being in Vermont this time of the year should bring lots of holiday cheer.
