The Mountain Top Inn & Resort goes red in support of the American Heart Association

The Mountain Top Inn & Resort is joining with the American Heart Association and millions of women and men who will wear red to help raise awareness of heart disease as the #1 killer of women. The Resort is showing its support of the National Wear Red Day by offering a free Nordic Ski & Snowshoe trail pass on Friday, Feb., 1, 2013 to anyone wearing red or a "Go Red Pin."

This year marks the 10th annual National Wear Red Day and the Resort's staff is excited to support the AHA's movement to reduce heart disease in America's women. Since the first National Wear Red Day 10 years ago, tremendous strides have been made in the fight against heart disease in women.

"We invite everyone to come and enjoy the 'heart healthy' sport of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing for free," said Roger Hill, director of programs and facilities at The Mountain Top Inn & Resort. "The views are so spectacular; you forget that what you are doing is good for your heart."

The trails at the Resort are groomed and perfect for skiers of all levels. Rentals are reasonably priced for anyone who does not have their own equipment.

Located adjacent to the Green Mountain National Forest and just 11 miles from Killington, The Mountain Top Inn & Resort's Nordic Ski & Snowshoe Center is one of the oldest in the country, having operated continuously since 1963. The entire trail system, which is open to the public, covers 60km with trails groomed for classic and skate skiing. In addition there are plenty of secluded, untouched trails for lovers of tranquil, back country skiing. Overlooking the Chittenden Reservoir and snow capped mountains, The Mountain Top Inn & Resort offers "breathtaking natural beauty," casual dining, 'mountain lodge style' accommodations, pet friendly cabins, vacation home rentals and warm hospitality as well as a variety of winter activities.
