The College's 18-hole golf course is located adjacent to Alumni Stadium. Faculty and staff pay a reduced rate* for a season of golf.
The Middlebury College Snow Bowl is an alpine ski area in the mountains east of town, on Route 125 past East Middlebury and Ripton-a distance of about 15 miles from campus. In addition to trails and lifts, it also has a lodge with a snack bar. It is open to the public, but its primary use is by the College community. Faculty and staff can obtain season passes at reduced rates.* Lessons are also available.
Cross-country skiing facilities are at the Jane and Carroll Rikert Ski Touring Center on the Bread Loaf campus, which also has season passes.* There is also a 5-kilometer cross-country track on the golf course (lit until 11:00 p.m.).
*Note: the difference between the fair market value of the ticket and the price paid by a Middlebury College employee counts as taxable income. This can be a significant amount of money, so please check with Human Resources to get exact figures.
