Route description[edit]

"End VT 108 Scenic" assembly on VT 108 southbound south of Smugglers Notch

VT 108 passes through the area of the Mount Mansfield State Forest. It starts in Stowe and goes through Smugglers' Notch to Jeffersonville. The road cuts through Mount Mansfield. The road is very steep and turning, making it impossible to plow in the winter,[3] so the road is closed usually from mid-October until May. Tractor-trailers are barred from this section, and large straight trucks, buses and RVs are strongly encouraged to find other routes year-round. However, skiers come from alternate routes to cross-country, downhill ski, and snow mobile in the Smuggler's Notch Resort. Along the road, there are small parking areas where rock climbing and hiking are popular.
