We spent a wonderful morning skiing here while visiting Stowe. Despite the crowd (Sunday during a holiday weekend) we had no real issues with traffic on the trails. There is something for everyone of all ability.

We had perfect skiing conditions! The trails are groomed and well-marked and designed for all levels of ability. It never felt crowded and the staff is friendly. Take your own lunch though as there is very little food to purchase. Last year we had some...More
