Stowe is a dichotomy for downhillers, a beauty queen with a beastly side, glamorous with gritty steeps. Since Stowe’s 1930’s inception, Mt. 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.

Stowe has the best balance of features for me (a skier) and my wife (a non-skier).
Very Good!

I like different areas for different reasons. Stowe has wonderful challenging terrain, great scenery and enough good skiers to make me put up with the "show" crowd. You don't list the resort I would have chosen, Whiteface. The top of that mountian can't be beat on a good day :-) Of course, the snow in Utah (Alta) is wonderful. Vail's bowls are... More
Poor!
