Center Info

Rikert Outdoor Center is open to the public from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm every day mid November – end of March.

The Center is located in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest on the Campus of Bread Loaf School of English in the Town of Ripton, VT.  We welcome you to come and explore this incredible forest and field terrain either on skis, snowshoes, or on a FatBike.  The Outdoor Center offers a full service rental shop.  After your outing, come sit in our lodge and warm yourself by the wood stove with a hot bowl of soup or a cup of hot chocolate.
