Spring’s arrival marks the start of maple sugaring season. From February through March, billowing white clouds of maple steam, coming off the evaporators of nearby sugar houses will fill the air with a faint trace of sweetness. Stowe offers a few options for visitors hoping to watch the sugaring process. Local syrup makers will open their business for viewing and offer tours throughout the season. In March, take in Vermont’s sweetest season during the statewide Maple Open House Weekend.
