Compared to the West Coast, you won’t find a ton of huge mountain resort towns on the East Coast, but Stratton Mountain gives it a great shot. There are plenty of après ski options here, and lots of hotels and rentals to choose from. Read on to decide where to stay near Stratton, Vermont, for this ski season.
Where to Stay Near Stratton Mountain: Best Hotels for Skiing
Stratton Mountain is located in southern Vermont and has a vertical drop of 2,003 ft. With a total of 99 trails it is the perfect place to ski nicely groomed trails and still find a few bump runs along the way. Stratton Mountain has a wonderful village with shops and dinning so when your legs need a break you can always walk around their village. Most of their trails are either novice or intermediate, but don’t get me wrong you can find some challenging slopes here to dig your edges into.
One thing Stratton is known for is for their community or better yet their village. People have owned the same condos on the mountain since it opened in 1961 and have raised their kids there—and their kids’ kids. They have amazing instructors if you’re looking for a lesson, and you can usually spot the ski team kids racing down as you head up.
Finally, before we go to the hotels near Stratton, there are some trails I would recommend for some people looking for good terrain at Stratton. Right off of Upper Kidderbrook on far lookers left there is a glade called Test Pilot. It is a wonderfully tight tree glade that will make you use your edges.
Also if you are skiing underneath the gondola you will find on skiers left Shred Wood Forest (I would recommend skiing here just for their trail name). All of these trails are open and well groomed, you will have a blast shredding this mountain for a lovely vacation.
Stratton Mountain Village
Now, let’s talk a little bit about the village before we start talking about the terrain, trails, and most importantly hotels (I will get there, I promise). Stratton is one of the best places to après ski with dinning and bars within walking distance. You can stop mid-ski at mid-mountain to enjoy lunch and a beverage with a view. Or you can go to places like Fire Tower Restaurant and Tavern, Sun Bowl Lodge, Bar 802, and The Drift at the end of the day.
Stratton also has plenty of places to shop if skiing is not your thing. Shop at stores like North Face, Stratton Clothing Company, Burton, Syd and Dustys, or even Von Bargen’s Fine Jewelry. There is no shortage of things to do while you are in town.
