Things to do During the Winter
We're the closest historic inn to the slopes - only 6 miles from Killington's high-speed, Sky ship gondola and are only 8 miles to Bear Mountain - use either of these entrances and avoid the access road traffic jam! (The main Killington entrance is only 10 miles away!). Killington has 1182 skiable acres, 200 trails over 7 interconnected mountains with 32 lifts, the greatest vertical descent and some of the steepest terrain in New England.
Okemo ski resort is less than 10 miles to our south and offers the Jackson Gore facility with a variety of slopes, new high-speed lifts, marvelous base lodge and dining facilities. Okemo's slopes provide a the best snow making and grooming in the East, as well as some of the best designed terrain parks. Okemo is a great family friendly environment the best place for beginning and intermediate skiers, families, and when our natural snowfall is lacking.
For non-skiers, our area provides lots of other winter fun – including snowmobiling with nearby rentals through Killington Snowmobile Tours and VAST trail access across the street. There is also snow tubing at Okemo, sleigh rides, ice-skating, ice-fishing, day-spas, museums, antiquing excursions, outlet shopping, and quaint country villages with winter festivals.
Things to do in the Summer
From mid-May through late October, there are so many recreational and educational opportunities within a short drive from Salt Ash Inn. They include bicycling, motorcycling, mountain biking, cross-country and mountain hiking, state parks, fishing and boating, golfing, disk golfing, horseback riding, and virtually any type of outdoor recreation you can think of. Summer and fall are perfect times to enjoy the moderate temperatures of our clean mountain climate and our cool, starlit nights, while shopping, dining, antiquing, visiting craft fairs and artisan exhibits, little-theatre evenings, and farm-life experiences. Maple-sugaring demonstrations in late spring are great fun, and our fall foliage is incomparable. We are located along Route 100 which is a scenic by-way.
