Maple Syrup time

West Hill House is teaming with Clearwater Sports to offer an invigorating snowshoe tour through a beautiful Beech, Hemlock and Maple forest to learn what a real Sugarbush is (no not the ski area). What a great combination of snowshoeing and maple sugaring! You will be guided from the beginning of the sugaring operation at the tap lines and work your way down the hill to the final destination – The Sugaring Shack. There you will learn about the final steps required to change sap into Maple Syrup. (Can you believe it takes 40 gallons of sap to produce 1 gallon of syrup)

Enjoy a sample of the day’s fresh product and learn about the different grades of syrup from this important Vermont industry. You will appreciate your waffles and pancakes all that much more with the knowledge gained from this fun and educational tour. Maple Syrup will be available to buy after the tour – or back at West Hill House.

Available daily 3:00- 5:30PM and must be reserved ahead – subject to availability. $55 per person

Special offer: Stay with us 3 nights during the sugaring season and we will INCLUDE this great outing for two at no extra charge. (Can’t be combined with any other offer.)
