Stowe

Ski Stowe

Our groups love this quintessential New England resort, which has skiing on Vermont’s tallest peak, Mount Mansfield. Described as a ‘skier’s paradise’ Stowe is one of the state’s most expansive and modern resorts, giving school groups a superb skiing experience. Stowe’s slopes are served by state-of-the-art lifts and superb snowmaking facilities.

Off the slopes, your group could be scoring strikes in the bowling alley, skating across the ice-rink and eating ice-cream in the town of Waterbury where Ben and Jerry’s originated.

Stowe’s high-tech electronic lift system promotes travel around the resort and for snowboarders, the Burton Learn to Ride centre and six terrain parks provide endless fun.

Resort Facilities

For beginners there’s an entire mountain, Spruce Peak, criss-crossed with easygoing runs which is a perfect base to learn and progress. Once confident, instructors will lead them to the top of Mt Mansfield from where they can ski almost four miles down Toll Road, a fabulous long green which snakes through the trees.

A favourite with first-timers, Stowe has an entire mountain dedicated to novices and, once they’ve built their confidence, beginners can join intermediate skiers higher up on Mt Mansfield. Here they can ski almost four miles down Toll Road, a fabulous long green which snakes through the trees.
