A term given by Vermonters to rich, out of staters (such as people from Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts) as they come up to Vermont in their big, gas guzziling SUVs to ski at the many ski resorts in Vermont. As much as the Vermonters hate flatlanders, flatlanders support their economy by visiting their country stores, gas stations, and hotels.
You know your a flatlander if:
-You drive an escalade, suburban, tahoe, yukon denali ect.
-You're annoyed at the fact that your iPhone or other expensive smartphone doesn't get 3G in Vermont.
-You own a season pass to one of the big ski resorts.
-You own a condo or house in Vermont
-You think that Vermont is a poor state when you drive along the back roads.
