  • First, I want to say that the staff at the base lodge guest services were exceptional! They truly want you to enjoy skiing Stowe Mountain and to do so safely. However, the maintenance of the ski runs ...  more »

  • Great ski resort but lift ticket prices are insane. $130 for adults and $111 for a 6 year old!!! I understand there are slight discounts if purchased 48 hours in advance but you don’t even catch a break on 2 day pass if purchased on same day. Nice to have RFID lift passes and go straight to lifts but many resorts already implemented that. My suggestion is to have another price bracket for kids.
  • Well staffed resort with great terrain! There are two sides connected by a gondola. The Spruce Peak side is much less busy, compared to the Mansfield side. The chalet on the Spruce side also has a great cafe for lunch. Additionally, there is a cute little village with a skating rink. The instructors here are fantastic - my partner signed up for a group lesson and ended up with a private lesson because no one else showed up. Ticket lines can get busy in the morning so do plan for that. Parking is free on the Mansfield side but only free for 30 min within the village. There is terrain for all abilities. Some of the double black runs are quite spicy! Would absolutely recommend this resort and the town of Stowe for a vacation, whether it be a family getaway or a couples retreat. Fantastic mountain with lots of great apres ski choices!
  • Stowe Mountain Golf Club is home to one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in Vermont. The excellent tree-lined, mountain-style layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
  • Great mountain, pricey though. Definitely buy tickets online in advance. $130 for an all day ticket is too much. Conditions were great. The mountain is typically overcast so pack the appropriate goggles!
  • Edit January 2018: Waiting lines were reduced, so up to 3 stars. Make sure to book online and 2 days in advance ($93), otherwise it is $130 per day. 2017: I went there for 2 days of skiing last weekend. Ski-wise OK, probably as good as it gets in New England, 4 stars for that. -1 star for the waiting line in the morning, which was over half an hour even though I booked in advance. There is a lack of desks, the location of desks is unclear (their are additional hidden ones), and the process with vouchers etc. seems to be messy (my booking took less than a minute, but I was of course waiting for other people's bookings). For $92/day this is not acceptable. -1 star because the lift closed before the scheduled time (4pm). This is bad because people might need to ski back to their car, and miss their last chance to do so. Also, again, for $92/day I expect a full day of skiing. Overall, the skiing was fine, but the operation could be improved.
