Spruce Peak, for us lightweight skiers

Sure, when most people think of Stowe, they think skiing. Stowe is home to the challenging "front four", some of the toughest ski terrain in the United States. Most of the tougher skiing in the Stowe area is at Mount Mansfield.

For more sedate skiers, the gentle slopes of the Spruce Peak area present enough of a challenge to warm you up enough, at least until you head in for a cup of hot chocolate!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A charming New England village. A great family ski resort
  • Cons:Apres ski is a little understated for the "Vail" crowd
  • In a nutshell:A great place for a long winter weekend
  • Last visit to Stowe: Oct 1998

    Nice little page on Stowe. I don't ski, but I still would like to visit this beautiful area in Vermont someday.

    So, how did you do down Mount Mansfield? Are you ready for KT-22 at Squaw Valley?

    If y'all are doing Red River , then you're ready for the Front Four;-] Think powder instead of ice;-)

    Not a ski enthusiast sbut a golf enthusiast, we went to Stowe in the summer and loved it. A great town. Your Andersen's Lodge & Restaurant experience sounds wonderful and delicious.

    Although I'm not a skier, I always thought I would do real well at the end of the day at the lodge...with the Austrian chef and a glass of wine! MMmmmmm
