Waitsfield is a ski resort town in Central Vermont. Mad River Glen and Sugarbush are both nearby.

Get in

If you are flying to the area, you are most likely to fly into Burlington International Airport in Burlington. There are smaller state airports closer to Waitsfield, however. Those include Edward F. Knapp Airport in Barre and Morrisville-Stowe State Airport in Morrisville.

For getting in by car, the closest major interstate is I-89 which stretches from Concord, NH, to Burlington. Waitsfield lies on Vermont Route 100, a scenic and winding road that connects the northern and southern ends of the state. Waitsfield is about 10 miles south of I-89 at Duxbury, Vt.

Get around

A car is necessary to get around. A four-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle is recommended in winter. The narrow, winding roads can be hazardous to drivers who are inexperienced driving on snow or ice. This is especially true when approaching from the West via Route 17 as it crosses the Green Mountains at Appalachian Gap. Large vehicles such as RVs are advised to seek another route.

Taxi cabs are less common in Vermont than in more populated areas.




Although it is a small town of about 2,000 residents, Waitsfield's proximity to Mad River Glen and Sugarbush ski resorts means that there are many lodging options when you travel here. The variety of accommodations includes bed and breakfasts, inns, motels, hotels and vacation homes.
