ADDISON COUNTY — Winter in Vermont is unique. From the frequent snowstorms to the long days spent on the slopes, people travel from all over New England just to get a taste of the wonder that exists here in Vermont’s simple landscape. Between the Vermont towns of Middlebury and Winooski, however, there lies a special sort of winter magic that exists nowhere else in the state. The magic comes in the form of a bond, created between young girls and young women, a magic rooted in the simple act of playing sports. That magic is Stride.
