The summer months are generally mild, with the average temperatures reaching the high 20s. The hottest month is July when some years temperatures have been known to reach 35° C.
Fall (autumn) is spectacular. Large numbers of holiday makers visit Vermont to witness the leaves changing colour. The fall season runs from September through to early November, with changing colours starting in the north of the state and moving south during this period.
The winter season is perhaps the liveliest of all in Vermont. Skiing is one of the better known activities of the state, with 21 ski resorts, over 900 ski trails, 40 cross country ski centres and 5,700 acres of snowboarding terrain. But there are plenty of other recreational options to pursue: snowmobiling, ice-skating, sledging and husky sleighs to name but a few.
In winter, temperatures often fall below freezing, although they do tend to vary quite substantially from place to place. The annual average snowfall is normally between 65-75 inches, but as much as 300 inches has been known to fall at higher elevations. The peak snowfall season is between November and March.
