Stowe is a quaint New England ski town with some of the most scenic and well groomed ski trails in the Northeast. Trip features skiing at the world-famous Trapp Family Lodge and scenic Mt. Mansfield Touring Center. Both ski areas offer trails that are suited for beginning to advanced skiers, and the trails are maintained using state-of-the-art grooming equipment.

Professional ski lessons for all levels are available. If conditions permit, a vast array of backcountry trails will be open. Downhill ski resorts are also nearby and accessible by taking the Stowe trolley. If you want to try other winter sports, check the snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice skating areas, all of which are accessible by the trolley. The trolley, which is free, stops at our hotel front door, downtown Stowe and the ski areas.

We stay at the Commodores Inn, which is within walking distance of Stowe Village. Its amenities include Jacuzzis, saunas, an indoor swimming pool and exercise rooms. It has a great dining room and lounge area with a fireplace that makes a perfect setting for after ski get-togethers.

Next door to Commodores is the Umiak Ski Shop. They rent ski equipment and offer snowshoe guided tours which include a moonlit walk with wine & cheese at a rustic barn among others.
