I live in Northern Vermont, and often view the Vermont Forum. I want to let everyone know that Vermont doesn't stop north of Stowe!! The Jay Peak resort is now in the midst of a HUGE expansion, and they now have a great indoor/outdoor water park. I haven't been, but friends who have been are very impressed.
For those of you who are considering travel to Vermont for any season, please remember that there are lots of things to do in the north, from the Lake Champlain islands to the covered bridges in Montgomery (the most of any town), to the foliage all through the Northeast Kingdom, and the very best ski areas (Smuggs and Jay). And of course, all are easy day trips from Burlington.
Hope to see you all soon!
