The Woodstock Inn Spreads It’s Wings

Vermont Ski Resorts have begun providing some pretty amazing off-season activities in the last few years. You can now zip-line, ride a roller coaster, go on a alpine slide or navigate an adventure course when visiting the mountains. The Woodstock Inn and Resort has really upped their game by partnering with The New England Falconry to provide guests with a truly unique experience — […]

An Afternoon on Snowshoes at the Woodstock Inn

My husband and I are meeting old friends and new for a weekend of skiing and eating at Okemo, and as we often do when we ski, we take […]
