Leisure Time

Stowe exudes breathtaking beauty in the winter. The best in alpine skiing is found at Stowe's Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak complex. Mt. Mansfield is Vermont's highest peak and offers a wide range of terrain for every ability level. It's known for the double-black diamond (most difficult) "Front Four " trails, but also offers some great intermediate cruisers and a lovely group of beginner trails in the Toll House area. Stowe is now Epic and part of Vail Resorts.

Stowe's interconnected cross-country ski centers provide one of the largest, most diverse trail systems in the United States. More than 150km of groomed and 100km of back country trails criss-cross Stowe's landscape.
