From Burlington, it’s then just a short drive to a number of New England ski areas. Let our Burlington, Vermont flight guide help as you plan your next New England ski trip.

>About Burlington

The most populous city in Vermont, Burlington is located 45 miles south of the Canadian border right on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. The city’s main strip, Church Street, which is a popular shopping and dining destination, is framed with picturesque views of Lake Champlain and the distant rolling hills. Burlington is a gateway to some of the best that Vermont has to offer.

Burlington is home to Vermont’s largest airport, Patrick Leahy Burlington International Airport, located in neighboring South Burlington. Roughly 25 ski resorts are less than a 3-hour drive from Burlington International Airport. Bolton Valley is only 35 minutes away, while Stowe, Smugglers’ Notch, Mad River Glen, and Sugarbush are all approximately one hour away. These mountains are perfect for day trips or shorter stays in Vermont. Whiteface, Jay Peak, Killington, Pico, Burke Mountain, Saskadena Six, Dartmouth Skiway, and Whaleback are all under 2 hours. For those who don’t mind the longer drive, Titus Mountain, Gore Mountain, Okemo, Cannon Mountain, Loon Mountain, and Bromley are all excellent options. 

Get to Know Patrick Leahy Burlington International Airport (BVT)

Patrick Leahy Burlington International Airport is one of the best bets for skiers and riders traveling to New England ski resorts because of its convenience to so many great ski areas. While it’s an international airport, it has much more of a small airport feel. Recently, it made USA Today’s list of the Top Ten Best Small Airports in the U.S., ranking eighth. BVT has 1 main terminal with 15 gates. 

You’ll most likely need to rent a car to get from Burlington International Airport to the region’s ski resorts. BVT’s rental car center is located inside the terminal on the main floor next to baggage claim. Outside on the ground floor is the rideshare area, another easy option for getting to closer resorts. There are also several shuttle buses you can utilize. The Killington Express Shuttle offers direct service from BVT to Killington, Pico, Stratton, Bromley, Mount Snow, Sugarbush, and more.

Need to Know Information 

If you’re renting a car, it’s important that you check the weather and traffic conditions before departing the airport, and have an alternate route saved in your GPS in case of unexpected closures or bad weather. The New England region can often have weather patterns that affect driving and road options. For example, if you’re headed to Smugglers’ Notch, the pass on Route 108 between Stowe and Jeffersonville closes for the winter from mid-October to mid-May. It’s recommended to set your GPS to 4323 Vermont Route 108 South to avoid this closure.  

As you’re planning and packing for your ski trip, consider how you’ll be traveling with your ski gear. Many airlines, including United, JetBlue, Delta, and American (all of which fly out of BVT), count a ski bag and boot bag as 1 checked item so long as they weigh under 50 lbs. combined.  For one less thing to think about, consider shipping your skis or snowboard. 

Finally, no matter where you’re flying, we recommend giving yourself some extra time. Winter weather, traffic, and the time to check ski gear and get through security can all be unpredictable.
