|About these ratings|
It might not be the biggest ski resort around, but Stowe Mountain Resort is still the place to go for skiers and snowboarders in northern Vermont. Why? The resort offers a wide variety of trails, from double-black diamonds on Mt. Mansfield's "Front Four" to the beginner terrain on Lower Spruce Peak. There are also trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing at the Cross Country Ski Center. And in the warmer months, the resort converts its skiing trails to hiking paths. When spring emerges, so do gondola rides, alpine slides, bungee trampolines and other family-friendly activities.
Many recent travelers enjoyed their day at Stowe; some TripAdvisor users even say it's the best skiing in New England. One of the downsides, however, is the cost: Everything from the day passes to the food could make you feel price-gouged. One Yelp.com user hints, "The food is very overpriced on the Spruce side of the mountain, so go to the Mansfield side for lunch."
You'll find Stowe Mountain Resort about five miles north of central Stowe on VT 108. Check out the resort's website for more information on day passes and hours of operation.
