Longer Trails. More Skiing

Stowe Mountain Resort is located on Mt. Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak at 4,395 feet above sea level.

New mountainside residences and a new Audubon Signature Sanctuary mountain golf course only make your experience all the better!

Stowe Mountain Resort's recent improvements reinforce the resort as the East's most premier mountain experience, year-round.

Stowe area offers a variety of lodging for everyone's needs, services to pamper, and many activities year-round.

Great shopping, entertainment, ski shops for your equipment while in town. Also check out the many restaurants from home-cooking to gourmet cuisine... Stowe has it all!

The resort offers a variety of terrain spread out over two distinct mountains. Spruce Peak offers intermediate and novice terrain, while Mt. Mansfield offers terrain for all ability levels.

In total, Stowe has 118 trails with 25 percent for advanced skiers, 59 percent for intermediates and 16 percent for novices. Each trail averages nearly a mile in length, which is double the average trail length of any other resort in the East.

Getting to the top of Stowe is fast and comfortable. The East's first detachable quad chair and the world's fastest gondola both offer top-to-bottom skiing. With high-speed lifts and exceptionally long trails, skiers are guaranteed more skiing time and less time standing in lift lines.

Snowboard and Cross-Country Skiing

With the support of nearby Burton Snowboard Company and a number of successful teaching programs, Stowe has worked hard to create a well-integrated and courteous ski/snowboard community. There is a terrain park and two half-pipes that have been created for snowboard riders.

Stowe is a Nordic skier's paradise with its vast expanse of interconnected trails. There are four centers to choose from: Stowe Mountain Resort Cross-Country Center, Trapp Family Lodge, Edson Hill Manor and Topnotch -- all tied together with one common ticket. From Stowe, skiers can easily access more than 200 miles of groomed and forested skiing.

Stowe averages more than 333 inches of natural snowfall a year. To ensure great skiing when nature does not cooperate, a state of the art snowmaking system provides 90 percent coverage, including two of the super steep Front Four trails.
