Stowe is consistently ranked as the "Ski Capital Of The East" with the 25-30 feet of snow that falls on the Stowe Mountain Resort's Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak each year. The ambience, hospitality and facilities of the mountain village of Stowe also play a big part in this ranking.
This year the "Mountain" offers some great bonuses with multi-day lift tickets as long as you pre-order your tickets 3 days or more before arrival. Call them at 1-888-253-4TIX and check out their webpage with details below.
Stowe is also a premier cross country ski resort area with the largest connected cross country trail network in the East. Trapp Family Lodge Cross Country Ski Center, with 45km of groomed trails and 100km of back-country trails, is ranked as one of the best cross country ski centers in the world. There are several other great cross country ski areas, including the Stowe Mountain Resort Cross Country Ski Center itself, providing a varied nordic ski experience.
Snowshoeing is also a growing sport in the Stowe area with our extensive network of nearby trails. Umiak Outdoor Outfitters in Stowe runs guided tours, and offers equipment rentals and touring advice.
If you can't bring your own, alpine and nordic ski rentals are available in Stowe. AJ Sports is a popular choice, since you don't need reservations and can pick up your equipment the night before.
And for those who want a varied alpine ski experience, Stowe is also conveniently located within an hour's drive of north-central Vermont's other great ski areas, including Smuggler's Notch, Sagebrush Valley, Mad River Glen and Jay Peak.
