My husband and I had a lesson with Peter, a fantastic teacher. He was so enthusiastic about the sport and he really knows how to explain technique and be encouraging at the same time. We learned a lot, went out againthe next day and we will be back. Everyone here was so friendly and the ski trails are just beautiful.

We lucked out with the weather. We went the day after a fresh snowfall, and although it was really cold, there was no wind, the sun was out and the sky was blue. The trails had all been freshly groomed. There were miles and miles of trails! It was easy to rent the ski gear (GREAT quality and new models),... More

This isn't the place to go for perfect skating conditions. For classic, though, it has the best trails, topography and beauty. It's run well and has a casual atmosphere. Too expensive for what it is, but it's a great place.

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.
