No snow! What do we do?

We had planned a trip to Manchester this weekend with the intention of skiing in nearby Bromley...except, of course, Mother Nature is currently proving stubborn with her lack of snow. We are staying at the Equinox from Fri-Sunday. Other than shopping the outlets (a given) and visiting the Equinox Spa, what is there do in Manchester if you aren't skiing? We'll have a car and would love to hear any and all suggestions!

Many thanks!

Good suggestions. Riley Rink is open for skating, look online for their schedule.

Also in the Bennington area, visit the Bennington Museum, Old First Church, and Robert Frost's grave and browse local shops along Main Street. As mentioned, in northern Mass. you could check out the Clark Art Institute which has amazing artwork in a lovely facility (and a great exhibit right now that I can't recall this minute), or the more radical stuff at MassMOCA in North Adams.

Looks like the weather will be nice and there are lovely trails up behind the Equinox, they'll tell you about them there.

Check out the website of the Southern VT Art Center, they might have something going on.

Evening Mewood 24,

....Or drive to Killington where they do have snow.....only about 45 minutes. Go via Weston (route 100) and pop into the Vermont Country Store.

All great ideas. As you can see we can keep you busy, snow or not. The good news is that colder weather is returning as of tonight, and I know that there are plans to make snow on Stratton. So you might be able to ski, even though it will be limited.

Also going on this weekend in the area. In Dorset the play house is putting on "Winnie the Pooh". There are skating lessons at the Riley Rink on Saturday morning. The American Museum of Fly Fishing is offering free admission on Saturday with holiday actives. If your still in town on Sunday you'll want to check out the Dorset Farmer's Market.

I'm sure your going to find more then enough to do.

Hey, Mewood. Check out the weather forecast --- looks like there's going to be three to six inches of snow over the next 36 hours!

.....and commenting as an exiled Brit....Manchester doesn't often have a lot of snow....rain..... yes...indeed bucket loads of it!

However it did cause me to chuckle.......a bit like the flight booked from Manchester UK and and not New Hampshire I heard about....you'd think the quoted price would alert the person to this fact!
