We just went to VT on vacation and went to this place for a hike. We were able to ride the lift before ski season and hike down the mountain. It was really nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful since we weren't from the area.

I spent many school vacations at Stowe with my Aunt Linda and Uncle Charlie Lord. I was there when it was just beginning to become popular. I loved it then and still do even though I haven't been back for a few years. Getting a bit too old to travel now. It's a wonderful place. Unfortunately, I never learned to ski. Uncle Charlie didn't seem to have the patience for me. The town still needs a regular stop light at the beginning of the mountain road. That flashing red light isn't going to do it.

Stowe is big mountain skiing in the East! Stowe has not lost the charm of a smaller resort, but offers world class amenities as well as great skiing. They have some seriously steep terrain!

stowe mountain is great. it is a very big mountain, yet it is not as crowded as it can get out west in colorado,etc.

the skiing conditions are OK -- sometimes can get quite icy, but other than that they keep the mountain in great shape

The town of Stowe is beautiful and it is nice to see that not only 25 year olds ski/board and go out at night!

But the skiing is certainly NOT anywhere NEAR the best. I really don't know how you could even begin ot say that. I was there for an afternoon and did the whole mountain. I went back to killington for the rest of my vacation. the lines for the gondola were very long and the lifts take forever. the terrain is mixed at best and there is very little of it.

Killington, Sunday river, attitash, bretton woods....they all clean stowe's clocks for skiing. But you can't beat the town and that is why I will return this year-just with very low expectations for skiing.

Oh and beware-moderate winds close the mountain. this was the case two our of three days when we should have been there-thank goodness we left and went to killington to ski!

Pros: beautiful town

Cons: every expensive lift ticket for long lines, slow lifts and mediocure terrain

Mt. Mansfield is full of character with terrain for all levels- Wonderful, long cruisers, good steeps, and quirky woods runs. They have a new snowmaking source, and a new quad over at Spruce, a part of the resort I have only recently skied and which has gorgeous, milder runs and full sun. There is in fact still a shuttle connecting the two mountains- not yet replaced with the lift as an older review stated, but it's pretty convenient. Pretty much everything at this resort is far better than at Killington: trails, snow, crowd-type, skiers, lodging, restaurants, town.

How you rank only one place in the east in the top ten and it is not Killington is beyond me!

Stowe is beautiful, has terrain for everyone, and usually has pretty good snow. There is some great woods skiing, and the park is pretty chill too. the lines are killer on the weekends, and even though the skiing is good the number of people can really ruin the day. if you're willing to tough out the crowds and like a busy bar scene at the end of the day than saturday at stowe is perfect for you. if you're there to get in as many turns as possible than don't go on the weekend or you'll be miserable. watch out for the gondola, it'll take you higher...

Stowe has spent millions in the last year upgrading their snowmaking facilities, accessiblity to the trails and to the resort itself. I have friends in the area and they have told me that this place is huge. They have a gondola going from mountain to mountain so there is no more shuttle. The hotel has expanded to accomadate hundreds of more guests and they're putting in a golf course to attract year round guests. The food in town is incredible. I've stayed for days up there and have only eaten at the same places only because I like them and the night life is great. Traffic can be hectic, but not unlike any other restorts I've stayed at. All in all, the place is a great stay for the whole family.

Stowe has very good skiing, but there were aspects I did not like. You have to take a bus to travel from one mountain to the other, and the trails are not well-marked. Furthermore, the mountain is large, but nowhere near as big as some other New England resorts. I think Stowe is a good resort, but definitely should not be placed above Sunday River or Killington (neither of which made the list).

my father used to go up to business meetings in march that were held in Stowe, Vt. we would stay at one of the higher quality inns (for free) and i would go ride all day...it was a good deal
i remember the last year we went up...it was snowing...they got 16 inches of fresh WESTERN STYLE powder that night...and about 18 inches the night before...so the next day was just amazing...even without a fresh dumping of powder...i love stowe

I am a native of Vermont and Charles Lord my Great Uncle founded the first Ski trail on Stowe and owned most of the mountain until he sold it many years ago. You will see that one of the trails is named after him.. I skied all my life while in VT, and Stowe is the best! Thank you, Claudia (Thompson) Cochran

I've always loved Stowe. There's the front 4 and so much more. The snow could get a little skimpy at times and the great resorts will draw their crowds but hey it's part of the charm of skiing New England.

And speaking of charm, the town has as much character as the mountain.

I have been skiing Stowe the last 4 years and I love it. The best skiing in the east hands down. Short lift lines, big vert, and tickets cheaper than other vermont ski areas. The village is great with everything you could need. If you go you must stop by Inner Boot Works so your ski boots fit great and the Malt shop is great cheap place for eats. The only bad this is the ski boot hike up stairs from the base lodge to the quad. Also I think the double should be a quad :)
