Overview

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

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

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 :-)... More
