Our region is an adventure sports mecca, and it starts right on our campus. You’ll find an indoor climbing center, 18-holes of disc golf, a 6,000-square-foot skatepark, high and low ropes course, a winter terrain park, and our own “fountain mountain,” where, conditions permitting, students can practice their ice-climbing moves. Travel a mere 10 minutes from campus and you’ll arrive at world-class mountain biking and 2,000 vertical feet of great skiing and riding at Burke Mountain.
The first thing most people notice—really it’s impossible not to—is the sheer physical beauty of our surroundings and the campus. Lyndon’s is a compact, modern, and well-equipped campus perched atop Vail Hill overlooking Burke Mountain and the Passumpsic River Valley. Our corner of Vermont, the Northeast Kingdom, has been designated as a geotourism destination by National Geographic—the first region in the U.S. to achieve that distinction.
Meet Jamie Struck, Lyndon’s adventure coordinator. Jamie manages the College’s adventure programs on campus and throughout the Northeast Kingdom, as well as hosting treks further afield when school is not in session.
