Stowe, Vermont

Ski Resort Info

Stowe is an 18th century town steeped in history. It is a short drive from the bottom of the slopes all of which is serviced by a shuttle that runs throughout the day. Stowe is a relaxing resort where you can soak up the warmth of this traditional, charming New England resort. The resort, set on the highest peak in Vermont has a good snow record and the wide covering of snow cannons means you should never be short of the white stuff. The lifts generally run from bottom to top and are fast so you can take advantage of the fast rides up and the run of the whole mountain to follow.

Piste Rating


The Ski Slopes

Beginners should head to nursery area in Spruce Peak, it is said to be one of the best in the US. As they improve there are many green runs from the top of the mountain to improve their skills on. Intermediates have plenty of blues to try with over half of the runs rated as intermediate. For the more advanced skier there is the “Front Four” if this row of steep double black diamond runs doesn’t keep you entertained you can try out your skills through the challenging tree lined routes. For a more sedate time you could try Stowe’s cross-country trails, they are well groomed and plentiful.

Après Ski

The scenery here is fantastic so why not take it in from the back of a horse-drawn sleigh. Being a relaxed resort the nightlife is relatively quiet. So after a day of skiing if all you want is an excellent meal and a warming drink in a relaxing inn then this is the resort for you. Restaurants are plentiful serving a good spread of cuisines, although they are not all in the town so you may have to travel to get to them. If you fancy dancing away o live music the Rusty Nail is the place, do remember you need to be 21 to drink alcohol in the bars, so take your ID.
