Vermont, the "Green Mountain State" is full of rich heritage and stunning nature. With 223 mountains over 2,000ft in elevation it's no wonder why people from all the East Coast of the US and Canada come to Vermont to ski and snowboard. Today, the majority of these mountainous areas are once again filled with forests after a concentrated effort in the early 19th century to clear-cut this precious timber. In the past, this area has also been mined for granite, marble, asbestos and talc.
