Loving a Vermont spring couldn’t get any easier with these sweet reasons!
Maple, Maple, and More Maple! At Sterling Ridge Resort, during a Vermont spring, we are part of a time-honored maple sugaring tradition. Thousands of maple trees grow on the ridge far above our cozy, private log cabins. As winter melts into spring, the tapped trees provide sap that is collected and used to produce pure, sweet syrup. Maple syrup is a natural sweetener that not only adds that perfect touch to pancakes but can be used in countless recipes in place of artificial sweeteners.
Vermont Maple Open House:
The weekend of March 23 & 24, 2019 the first Vermont spring weekend, marks the annual Maple Open House, where local sugarhouses open their doors to the community, so curious maple syrup lovers can learn all about the maple sugaring process. Here at Sterling Ridge, we are celebrating with daily maple treats and goodies for our guests, and self-guided tours of our very own sugaring operation!
Vermont Maple Fest in St. Albans, VT:
Celebrate a Vermont spring at the Vermont Maple Festival in St. Albans, VT has been a tradition in the Green Mountains for over 53 years! This year, Maple Fest is April 26 – 28. Events include a carnival, parade, 8.5-mile run, live entertainment and LOTS of Vermont maple food and beverages.
Vermont spring skiing is at its best in New England this year with OVER 81 inches of snow! With Smugglers Notch only a 5-minute drive, Stowe only a 45-minute drive, and Jay Peak a 40-minute drive away, Sterling Ridge is the perfect place to lodge to experience the best Vermont has to offer for spring skiing and snowboarding. What’s so great about spring snow sports? The lines are shorter and you don’t have to “bundle up” with so many layers… it’s a win, win!
Sterling Ridge Easter Egg Hunt:
The 7th Annual Easter Egg Hunt for the guests of Sterling Ridge and the local community will be Saturday, April 20 at 10 am. All are welcome to attend this fun Vermont spring event! This is a great way for people to get out of their homes (and cabins) to enjoy nature. People young and old come out ready to hunt down some hidden eggs on our many Sterling Ridge trails. This is a free community event – all we ask is you consider donating a non-perishable food item for the local food shelf.
