Fall Foliage Facts.....

  • The best viewing time for bright vibrant colors are between the last week of September through the first two weeks in October. 
  • Shorter days and colder nights cause the chlorophyll to move from the leaf to the branch to prepare the tree for winter. 
  • Birch, elm, poplar, and hickory always turn hues of gold and yellow. 
  • Sugar maple, red maple, and red oak, usually turn to hues of red but can also change to hues of yellow. 
  • The weather can play a large role in foliage. Cooler nights and warm fall days, a wet spring, and a moderate summer can all make for a fantastic leaf-peeping season.

Magic of Stowe Fondue Dinner Tour

Your adventure starts with a trip through the woods of Stowe, Vermont on snowshoes, the moon providing an eerie glow as it reflects off the snow. The dark is pushed away by the light of your headlamp as the group circles around some animal tracks. Umiak's guide explains that it looks as if a fox chased a mouse. A certified guide will teach you the joy of snowshoeing, and then take you on an easy walk in the woods where you will learn about Vermont's environment. Your snowshoe trip ends with glowing cheers in a warm room where the air is filled with the smell of Vemont style cheddar cheese fondue waiting on the table, with fresh French bread and vegetable for dipping. Dessert is decadent chocolate fondue with fresh fruits and other yummy delights to smother in warm chocolate.

Touring Vermont by dog sled can be a truly magical experience. October Siberians Dog Sled Adventures – one of Vermont's best kept secretes – offer tours in the historical Little River State Park in Waterbury Vermont, which is conveniently located near Stowe, Bolton and Sugarbush . The Siberian Huskies are friendly, energetic, hard working dogs that could transport you back to a time long ago when man and dog depended on each other for more than companionship. This is not just a ride in the sled but an opportunity to be part of the team and have hands on experience running a dog team. Come join us, as we share the beauty, peace and history of the Green Mountains through the sport of Mushing.
