Stowe Winter Activities

In the wintertime, visitors come from around the world to experience Stowe’s quintessential village and Stowe's world class ski resort.

Skiing & Riding
Each of the trails at Stowe Mountain Resort offers a unique experience - hence "The Great 48." Because no two trails are alike, individualism and self-expression awaken within those who explore the mountain's character.

Sleigh Rides
A horse-drawn sleigh ride is a classic experience not to be missed during your time in Stowe!

Dog Sledding
See what it's like to take a ride with these amazing animals. Cozy up in a comfortable, one-of-a-kind touring sled, or dare to drive your own team.

Ice Climbing
Nearby Smuggler's Notch (fondly referred to as "The Notch" by locals) provides a superb playground for ice climbing.

The expertly groomed VAST trail network winds around the area for VAST members. One can also enjoy a guided tour from Stowe Snowmobile Tours.

Snowshoeing & Nordic Skiing
Stowe offers renowned terrain for cross-country skiing & snowshoeing!
Visit the Trapp Family Lodge Cross-Country Ski Center, Edson Hill Manor, Umiak Outfitters and the Stowe Mountain Resort for numerous trails and guided tours.
