Stowe Vermont
Stowe Mountain Resort received up to 2 feet of snow this past weekend, energizing early season operations and opening 80% of Stowe’s vast mountain terrain. The infamous Front Four (Starr, Goat, National and Lift Line) are arguably the most exciting runs in the East. For the novice skiers and riders, there's an entire mountain (Spruce Peak) criss-crossed with easygoing runs. And with the longest average trail length in New England, be prepared to spend some time on the mountain. While our trails are classic, our lifts are modern. Along with several doubles and triples, we've got a high-speed quad and a state-of-the-art eight person gondola that whisks skiers from bottom to top in a blazing seven and a half minutes. The Cliff House at the Gondola summit has been totally renovated this year. Bring your appetite for great food and wondrous views to Expect adventurous cuisine and sublime service. Ski or ride off with every sense fully satisfied.
