UVM is in a cool town with some great riding less than 2 hours away. An hour away you have Stowe, Smuggs and Bush. Bolton Valley even closer. Hour and a half to Jay. Hour and a half across the lake to Whiteface.
If you are smart and rich you could go to Middlebury and you then have your own Mountain with the Snow Bowl.. Bush an hour away and Stowe and hour and a half.
