So my take on Burlington, Vermont: it’s like a really friendly – slightly backwards East European country. If you’re not familiar with Burlington; it’s the largest city in Vermont and the county seat of Chittenden County. It’s the home of the man who should’ve been president: Bernie Sanders. As well as Phish and woolly sweaters. So let’s take a little photo tour of Vermont’s largest city.

Bolton Valley is the closest ski area to Burlington. A mere 20 minutes from the city. But don’t expect any form of public transportation set up to take you there – believe me; I asked and had to take a Uber to get there.

My first day of snowboarding there coincided with a blizzard. Note how all the other chairlifts are empty.
