LOCATION

Harris Hill Ski Jump is located on Cedar Street in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Free parking is on-site at the hill in the field.

It’s Vermont in February! For those who aren’t used to New England winters, it can be unpredictable, so it’s always best to dress in layers. Snow gear is highly recommended: waterproof boots, hat, gloves, long johns, etc. If it’s warmer, you can always peel off the layers!

You are in for a treat as the Harris Hill Vermont Ski Jump is a festive atmosphere with visits by Jumper the mascot, food vendors, music, event souvenirs and a heated beer tent with chairs and tables that are set up outside (weather permitting) at the base of the jump.

Have A Beer On The CT River

Beer Garden

Whetstone Station

A great little Brewery Restaurant and Bier Garten right on the Connecticut River in Brattleboro. It’s perched right over the river with great views. They have a nice interior dining room open 7 days a week from 11:30am until late with a bar that serves over 60 craft beers. Whetstone Station

The official Vermont/New Hampshire USGS State Geographic boundary also runs right through the brewery so it can be fun to have a beer in both states.vermont/new hampshire boundary

Step outside on the beautiful casual rooftop biergarten for some waterfront dining. A great place to have a drink or a bite to eat in the summer.
