03.09.2010 – ‘Mmmm', maple syrup...We love it on pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, and snow (yes, snow!). We use it in our cooking, eat it as candy, and even love maple-flavored ‘creamees'. So, exactly what is maple syrup? What is it made of? How is it made? Where is it made? This year, the Ninth Annual Vermont Maple Open House Weekendis March 26th to 28th and there is no better place to learn all about maple syrup than in Stowe, Vermont.

Visit the Trapp Family Lodge sugarhouse on Saturday, March 27th and Sunday, March 28th for a full explanation of syrup production, sample tasting and a sugar-on-snow party. Sugar-on-snow is a traditional Vermont way of making instant maple candy. Enjoy it with dill pickles, donuts and hot apple cider! The Trapp Family Lodge sugarhouse is in the woods, so to make the experience even more authentic, you'll get there via cross country skis, snowshoes or complementary horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Also in Stowe, visit the Nebraska Knoll Sugar Farm Saturday, March 27th and Sunday, March 28th and sample warm maple syrup, soak up the stream in their sugarhouse and get a tour from the experts. Watch them make maple sugar (another delectable confection), and join-in on Nebraska Knoll's sugar-on-snow tradition.

Since you will already be in Stowe, why not hit the slopes? Your bellies and minds will be full of maple syrup, and there is no better way to burn off those calories than a day of skiing or riding at Stowe Mountain Resort. Plus, in late March, Mount Mansfield offers some of the best spring skiing there is!
