Wine & Cheese Snowshoe Hikes
Our popular wine and cheese snowshoe tours return this winter.
We have 10k of dedicated snowshoe trails that meander and climb along Bear Mountain.
Hikes begin at the base with a stop at the warming hut where you'll enjoy wine and Grafton Village Cheese served by a crackling fire. The cost is $25 per person, and the difficulty of each tour will be based on the group’s ability.
All tours meet at Grafton Ponds' lodge at 1:30 pm. Reservations are necessary, 802-843-2400.
Based on availability and Mother Nature's bounty.
