To me, the best hidden skiing is in the backcountry. Vermont boasts epic runs in the woods, near Jay Peak in the Northeast Kingdom and down throughout the Green Mountains—especially around the state’s tallest mountain, 4,400-foot Mount Mansfield. But if you’re looking for groomed slopes, a few small throwback resorts come to mind. All three tend to get overlooked by tourists, who opt for the glitzier resorts close by, but not by locals who like their lift tickets cheap and their trails empty.
