12 Reasons Why People From Vermont Are Unbelievably Tough

Everyone takes pride in their home states, and we're no different here in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. We can handle brutal winters, rough terrain, and even flatlanders thinking the Green Mountain State is in Canada (or worse, New Hampshire!). But we love this list of reasons that prove Vermonters are especially tough. Enjoy!

12. We can handle the cold.

Up to 120 inches of snow may fall each year in the Green Mountain State. The average temperature for the winter season is 22 degrees. The cold weather is broken up by thaws when temperatures reach 40 or 50 degrees and the snow melts. And then it snows all over again.

11. We have thick skin.

Let people think whatever stereotypes they want about Vermonters…We know we're awesome!

10. We’ll do just about anything for a good view.

We hike Long Trail (which is the length of Vermont) and back for the fabulous views. It is the oldest long-distance trail in the United States, constructed between 1910 and 1930 by the Green Mountain Club.
