Mansfield’s challenging terrain has called to core skiers, earning it the moniker “Ski Capital of the East.” Meanwhile, the swank Spruce Peak Village, the church-steepled Main Street of Stowe and the bustling Mountain Road of European inspired establishments lend a sophistication and elegance to this Vermont vacation spot.

Even though it has been several years since I have been at Stowe, it is a resort any Eastern skier should visit. The Front Four trails are very good. Just bring a lot of money!

I believe that Stowe has some very challenging terrain and some easy stuff as well. The trails seem twice as long as some of the other resorts I have been. I believe Stowe is just an all around good time.

terrain & scenic beauty unlike anywhere else in the northeast. travel distance as compared to anywhere out west makes this more attractive to me than Jackson Hole, for example. Obviously, JH as well as Alta & others are more exciting but too far away.
