When you need a break from Stowe Mountain Resort's slopes, take a peek in this quirky little museum. Nestled in downtown Stowe, the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum aims to "collect, preserve and celebrate Vermont's skiing and snowboarding history." Items found on display here include various skis, boots and chair lifts.

Recent visitors said that anyone interested in skiing and snowboarding will enjoy this museum's collection. Many cited the "10th Mountain Division" exhibit as the museum's best, though a few wished there were more items to see.

The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum is open between noon and 5 p.m. every Wednesday through Sunday. Tickets cost $5 per person (or $10 per family) and include access to the museum's seven exhibits, restrooms and a small gift shop. The museum is housed in Stowe Village's Perkins Building and can be reached by car or the seasonal Mountain Road Shuttle. Visitors coming from Morrisville or Waterbury can also take the Morrisville Shopping Shuttle or Route 100 Commuter to Stowe Village. Limited parking is available in the area. For more information, check out the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum's website.

#1 Trapp Family Lodge

As avid fans of "The Sound of Music" already know, the real von Trapp family was a musical troupe that toured the world after their escape from Salzburg, Austria, in 1938. As the family business became lucrative, the von Trapps purchased a small farmhouse in Stowe and settled down to live amid the mountains yet again. Over time, the farmhouse grew into a large resort with cross-country ski trails, mountain biking paths, tennis courts and more.

The now expansive lodge mainly serves as a ski retreat, but the property's hiking trails and horse-drawn carriage rides are equally popular. "The Sound of Music" fans and von Trapp aficionados recommend partaking in a history tour of the lodge to get an overview of the family's history.
