Winter Fun for Everyone at The Inns at Equinox

Winter in Vermont:  the snow-blanketed mountains provide the perfect terrain for skiers and snowboarders. Visitors come to carve up the powdery slopes and then warm their frozen fingers by the fireplace. That’s all and good for the alpine enthusiasts, but what about those who enjoy the snow but not skiing? 

The Inns at Equinox come to the rescue, offering a winter wonderland of activities in addition to skiing and snowboarding. You don’t have to ascend the ski lifts to reach the summit of fun here. A host of snowy adventures, in-town excursions, and pampering amenities ensure the entertainment level is high, even if the temperature isn’t. 

“The experience is so much more than people expect when they come to The Inns at Equinox in winter time,” Director of Sales and Marketing Gerry McFarland said. “Of course skiing and snowboarding get most of the attention this time of year, but for those not wanting to head to the mountain, they can experience our spa, shopping, take a lesson at our Land Rover Driving School, or take a glass blowing class at Manchester Hot Glass. Some guests will even come and stay just to sit by one of our fireplaces and read, or spend some social time by our fire pit.”

Find serenity in the snow at The Spa at Equinox, a 13,000-square-foot facility that features 10 treatment rooms. Rejuvenating treatments celebrate Vermont’s natural splendor by incorporating native products like maple sugar, wildflowers, and mineral clay. Relax with a massage menu, facial and body treatments, heated indoor pool, and cardio room. Get going in the movement studio, which is perfect for yoga, pilates, and meditation.

Shopping enthusiasts can get a workout walking through Manchester Village. Enjoy an unhurried shopping experience at a slew of specialty shops and boutiques. Whether you’re going antiquing, searching for a new wardrobe, or looking for some fresh fruit at the farmers market, there’s a store for you. Pick up a new purse at Coach, discover the latest styles at Giorgio Armani, or purchase a handcrafted piece at Bennington Potters. 

For some outdoor fun, traverse the terrain at the Land Rover Experience Driving School. Open all year, this 80-acre course showcases numerous challenges with an extensive trail system for exploration. Auto experts will teach you techniques on ascents, descents, side tilts, and rocky terrain. The degree of difficulty matches the participant’s skill and more advanced drivers are invited to explore the expansive trails winding through the majestic Green Mountains.

Unleash your inner artist at the Manchester Hot Glass Studio & Gallery. Glass blowing classes allow you to channel your creativity and make a unique bowl, vase, or other work of art. Choose your glass colors and then mold your molten glass into the perfect piece. Best of all, this array of activities comes at a reasonable price. 

“The Inns at Equinox offer tremendous value,” McFarland said. “Not just in terms of price, but having access to all of the amenities of the Equinox Resort and flexible guest room configurations that can accommodate everyone from individual travelers to families and even groups.”

With an array of activities, exceptional amenities, and great prices, The Inns at Equinox offers winter fun for everyone.
