The touring center may be small but it has everything you need - friendly personnel, a wood burning stove, clean bathrooms and a full range of equipment, incidentals and beverages. Even great maps of the whole Stowe area!

To be fair, the new snow made conditions perfect. The trails were laid out well to allow both a novice or more experienced recreational skier many hours of fun in the valley or surrounding ridges. Well groomed for classic Nordic or skating. The beautiful stream(s) added to the esthetics, with bridges that were wide and substantial. All in all, a... More

We spent two days cross country skiing out of this touring center. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. There are a variety of trails at a number of levels and you can ski over to the Trapps trails if you want. The trails are well-maintained and there are skinny "classic" trails as well. A "don't miss" in Stowe.

My young daughter referred to this place as an "Alpine Dream"! The trails here are immaculate and it is definitely a secret because we only ran into a handful of skiers during the three hours we were there. You ski past beautiful rocky streams and lots of birch trees, so very scenic. Beware that the beginner's trail is actually very... More

Very nice trails. Grooming done throughout the day when needed. Also, the downhill ski resort allows x-country skiers to use the one chairlift closest to the ski center and what a blast to ride up after skiing all day to take a final trip down the mountain!

We were very pleased with the well-groomed ski trails that provided several hours of skiing at the beginner and intermediate levels. We had our own equipment so rental prices were not an issue. Daily passes were available with a significant discount for seniors. A pleasant surprise was a small hut with hot chocolate and free snacks open on weekends that... More

I went for a morning of snowshoeing while my family hit the slopes. I nearly choked at the $25 trail fee, used to paying MUCH less at other resorts. I bit the bullet and paid, which got me a dent map and a push in the right direction. The trails were nicely groomed and well maintained. A bench along the... More

The skiing experience was terrific, however the price of pass and rental was exhorbitant. There are other locations nearby, just as nice, that charge significantly less.

In a way, I wish they advertised this place a little more. In another way, I'm glad they don't. We are new to xc skiing, but are finding that we like it better than regular skiing in many ways. With our kids being at the age where they are joining us in activities, it's a much more affordable option. But... More
