I would have some concerns about living in a place with lots of snow and ice as I get older.
I can get that, one would just have to plan for it and take care of your environment, like making sure that everything is plowed, sanded, or salted, which the town and state do on the roads and sidewalks. When you do have snow on a regular basis, folks know how to deal with it. We are already resolving these issues for ourselves on our private roads and driveways. One does have to be be careful about walking around, but that would be true wherever you lived when you got older-my Mother, who lived in FL, fell and broke her hip a couple of times within her apartment, so it can happen anywhere.

there are lots of folks that are older living in VT very happily.

I should also mention that we didn't get snow last winter until the end of January, when it also got cold. It was in the 70's when we had our property tour and meeting on Jan. 2. Who said there is no such thing as global warming!<grin>
Otherwise this place looks nice.
Thanks, please come visit.
