Winter on Mt. Philo is an opportunity for exhilarating outdoor recreation. Hiking with dogs remains the most popular activity Mt. Philo State Park is renowned for its great sledding and jack jumping, and is one of 3 best northern Vermont sliding locations. The tarred and banked roads of the State Park are closed to traffic from October through May. A brisk walk to the top provides a superb view before an exhilarating 1.5 mile ride down. Many younger sliders stay on the relatively steep 1st climb from the parking lot. The Inn has a collection of sleds and jack jumps available to our guests.
The Hammerhead sled was developed by inventor Steve Luhr right on Mt. Philo! Check out this exhilarating video of Tony "Max Speed" Telensky sliding on Mt. Philo at the 2014 Mt. Philo Innvitational.
