Stowe is one of those compact resorts that exudes quality, value and friendliness and will appeal to those who want a ski vacation that promises not only great skiing, but also other excellent winter activities in a truly chocolate box,romantic setting.Stowe has a good snow track record and is home to some of the best and well known runs on the East Coast of America, but what makes Stowe stand out is its old, quaint village, which is now owned by Vail Resorts.

Stowe On The Slopes

Though the town and slopes are divorced from each other, with the ski area being 7 miles from the village, the areas are connected by the town trolley, which makes a frequent loop between the two, ensuring a continuous flow of smiling enthusiasts. Not perhaps the best place Stateside for complete beginners,you will get the most out of Stowe if you've got at least a couple of days skiing under your belt.There are some pretty good green (the easiest) runs which will take you on a long loop from the top to the bottom, where you will find a beginners area around the Easy Mile chairlift, but the majority of terrain is geared for intermediates. You can choose from impeccably pisted runs (or groomed trails as the Americans call them) on which to perfect technique, or glades in which to make swift, tight turns.Then there is the odd mogul field (or bumps as the Americans call them) where if not sure how to navigate them proficiently, maybe enrol in a 'Bumps Clinic' at the Stowe Ski School and really leard how to flex those knees!! Having a run down the quaintly named Front Four, National, Goat, Starr and Liftline bump runs will ensure you are well satisfied with your accomplishment or have you in a gibbering heap unable to speak, but these are the runs that give Stowe the edge on other Eastern resorts.

As this is such a beautiful setting you may want to consider taking a day out from pumelling the pistes to pursue a more less adventurous winter activity. Stowe has four state-of-the-art cross-country ski centres and many miles of interconnected trails through the spruce and pine forests. Why not take and take a moonlit snowshoe trek along the recreation path.
