Ski Stowe

Every year, Stowe becomes a verifiable winter wonderland as snow blankets the town and nearby mountains. With the fresh coats of powder come activities for travelers of all ages and skill levels both on and off the slopes. Dog sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and sleigh rides are all traditional winter pastimes, but what Stowe is most known for is its world-class skiing and snowboarding trails. Luckily, a stay at Meadowstone Manor places travelers a short drive away from the bunny slopes and black diamonds of Stowe’s best ski resorts, many of which can be accessed with Epic Pass membership.

STOWE MOUNTAIN RESORT

Located just 15 minutes away from Meadowstone Manor, Stowe Mountain Resort offers much more beyond the 116 ski trails and 12 lifts that are internationally acclaimed. Taking on the look and feel of an elegant alpine village, this family friendly resort keeps everyone entertained with ice skating, indoor rock climbing, as well access to the historic Auto Toll Road, shopping, dining and more. This year-round resort even has a Summer Adventure Camp, Gondola SkyRide, ZipTour and TreeTop Adventures, so there’s something to do there even outside of the winter season.

 

SMUGGLERS’ NOTCH

Also just a 15-minute ride from Meadowstone Manor is Smugglers’ Notch.
