Time to ski!

The hustle and bustle of the holidays are finally over and now it’s time to enjoy some time on the mountain!

The Fullerton Inn is located within an hour to six, that’s, right six of the best ski venues in North America, including the world renown Killington Mountain, which is home to the largest ski area East of the Mississippi  — 141 trails and 22 lifts. We’re just 40 minutes from Killington.

Here’s the list of ski resorts we’re near.

Killington – 40 min drive. Killington is one of the most recognized ski resorts in the East, it ranks No. 7 this year on Skinet.com’s 2013 ski resort guide. There’s a reason it’s nicknamed the Beast of the East for a reason. It has lots of challenging trials and really has something for everyone.  

Pico Mountain – 50 mins. Pico is kind of like Killington’s little brother as it’s only down the road. But ever ski resort in Vermont is kind of like Killington’s little brother. It features a big mountain with small hill charm.

Stratton Mountain – 35 mins. – Skinet.com pegged Stratton as the sixth best resort in 2011-2012, and No. 14 on its resort guide in 2013. No matter how dry or unseasonably the winter season brings, Stratton does a fantastic job of getting the mountain ready in any conditions.

Bromley – Sun Mountain — 30 mins. A half hour drive to a place where kids can ski for just $15? It’s a steal. And $49 for an allday pass during the week is worth it too. Eight lifts is enough to have fun.

Magic Mountain – 15 mins. The closest place to ski from our bed and breakfast is just down the road in Londonberry. The ski resort had fallen on rough times, but its revival is worth visiting. Four li

Okemo Ski – 20 mins. Skinet.com has Okemo ranked as its fourth best ski resort in the East in the 2011-2012 season, and No. 15 for ski resorts in 2013 — and it’s just 20 minutes away. They do a lot of grooming so the trails are great for those looking to enjoy a nice, easy run instead of a challenge that other mountains provide.

There’s no better way to spend your time skiing than with us. We’re a close, scenic drive to any of these ski venues, plus, you get to enjoy a quaint and quiet atmosphere at a southern Vermont Bed and Breakfast without the hustle and bustle of a huge ski resort like Killington, Okemo or Stratton.
