Most people who come to Stowe do so or the skiing. Stowe Mountain Resort offers the chance to ski Mount Mansfield, which is Vermont’s highest mountain. Needless to say, the terrain isn’t exactly the easiest to maneuver on, so most of the trials are meant for intermediate to advanced skiers. Mount Mainsfield is known for having the “Front Four” trails, which are named National, Lift Line, Starr, and Goat, and these are some of the most challenging runs in all of New England.
Of course, if you happen to come across Stowe during the warmer months, don’t think that you will lack for things to do. Stowe hosts one of New England’s largest antique car rally that takes place every August. People come from far and wide to take place in the rally, so if you plan on visiting the sights or just being in the area during this time, be sure to book your hotel rooms ahead! The Trapp Family Lodge works as the principal site for the Stowe Performing Arts summer concert series, and it also serves to host a the Vermont Mozart Festival.
On top of all of this, the third week of September brings the weekend-long British Invasion event, which celebrates the musical greats from across the pond. For those that would like something a little more naturalistic, there’s always Smugglers’ Notch State Park to go and enjoy!
Stowe is a little-known attraction in Vermont, but those who come to visit quickly fall in love with the small town. You’ll find plenty of reasons to enjoy Stowe – come and see why!
