Craftsbury's too much fun to come just one day per winter and our pricing on memberships has made a season of skiing much more affordable:

FREE Weekend Highland Lodge Shuttle

Again this season, we will be running a free shuttle bus Saturdays and Sundays to Highland Lodge for houseguests, day members, and annual members. We hope to start our shuttle service by mid-December, depending on conditions - it's always worth a call to the Touring Center to confirm the current shuttle schedule and availability.

Catch the weekend shuttle at either the Center's or Highland Lodge's Touring Center.

Weekend shuttle
Leaves Craftsbury: 9:30am
Arrives Greensboro: 9:45am (leaving immediately to return to Craftsbury)
Arrives Craftsbury: around 10:00am

Afternoon shuttle may be available by request.

The above schedule will run from mid-December through February. We determine spring schedules based on demand - good to give a confirming call before making the drive up! Some important details:

  • There are no reservations on the shuttle - it's first come, first served.
  • If more passengers show up than can be accommodated in one vehicle, a second run will be made.

Houseguests: have a bigger group than the shuttle can manage? Want to come or go at a different time than the scheduled shuttle period? Be sure to talk with the front office the day prior to your weekend trip to make arrangements for your group's scheduled pickup or dropoff.
