STRATTON MOUNTAIN, Vt.
There is no better time to come home to Stratton than the holidays. The resort is keeping with tradition and has planned a season full of extraordinary events.
With so much to do and see on and off the hill, now is the best time to take advantage of Stratton’s Kids Ski and Stay Free package. Available until Christmas Day, kids 17 and younger are invited to ski and stay free when two adults purchase a (2 night minimum) lift and lodging package in a family friendly condominium. Plus, kids rent free when an adult purchases a rental.
Below, please find some Holiday 2010 highlights:
