If you’re not familiar, the state of Vermont closes The Notch Road between Smugglers’ Notch Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort due to snowfall.
The road is a 3.5 mile long winding path through cliffs, rock outcroppings, and tight corridors.
You know it’s spring when Scenic VT 108 aka “The Notch Road” opens for vehicle traffic. It’s an annual tradition that means warmer weather is ahead.
The Vermont Agency of Transportation just opened the road for vehicle traffic earlier this morning.
The state typically keeps the road open from May to November, but it’s entirely based on weather conditions.
I highly recommend that you drive through it during the summer or fall. The views are spectacular. Just pray that you don’t get stuck behind one of the dozens of semi-trucks that get stuck on the road each season…
