With over 300 inches of annual snowfall, Stowe turns into a winter wonderland every year, welcoming skiers of all ages and skill levels to explore the hundreds of trails that will send them zipping down the mountains.
For travelers with an Epic Pass, Stowe is a particularly excellent choice for a ski vacation as several local resorts are part of that exclusive network, offering members unlimited, all-season access to their slopes.
Hitting the Slopes In Stowe and Its Surroundings
Stowe is an internationally renowned ski destination with plenty of world-class resorts offering activities both on and off the slopes. Stowe Mountain Resort, for example, is more like an alpine village with 116 trails, 12 ski lifts, and lots of family friendly activities like ice skating and indoor rock climbing. Smugglers’ Notch is also a popular option among families thanks to the daily programming like bonfires, pirate-themed bingo, and yoga classes. This is in addition to the resort’s dozens of trails spread across three mountains, as well as six terrain parks.
For the skiing purists, Mad River Glen is the place to go, where they can enjoy the slopes without any snowboarders around. Meanwhile, more rugged adventurers can head to Bolton Valley Resort for 1,500 acres of backcountry exploring in addition to 71 alpine trails and 100 km of Nordic terrain.
