We’ve always felt that Stowe Mountain Resort is a great place for skiing and riding—but maybe we’re a little biased. After all, it’s just down the road from us, calling us like a siren, singing in our ears, “Come ski. Come ride.” But we’re obviously not the only ones who believe Stowe is the place to be this time of year. According to a recent story on WCAX news, many others seem to feel the same way.
Now, we could just repeat everything the news story says—Stowe Mountain has a freestyle park and halfpipe, miles of trail, great snow and snowmaking capabilities, plus views of Mt. Washington, Camel’s Hump, and Lake Champlain on clear days—but you should really check out the video, Slopeside with Nick Borelli: Stowe, instead.

There are some aspects of the resort that the video didn’t include, but we did want to mention them as well. For instance, Stowe Mountain offers dog-sled tours by Peace Pups Dog-sledding. The resort also offers adaptive skiing and riding lessons (with advanced reservations) and is a partner of the Friends of Stowe Adaptive Sports, a chapter of Disabled Sports, USA. For those who are not downhill skiers, there are cross country and snowshoe trails. Add in the Spruce Peak Arts Center, offering film series, lectures, and live performances, and the Spa and Wellness Center, and you’ve got the makings for a great time. And we haven’t even started on everything you can do in the summer!
The Stowe Mountain Resort is a great place to spend the day or entire week. Get outside while the getting’s good and enjoy!
