Fresh snow made the conditions unbeatable. There are miles of trails - groomed and well-marked for skiiers of all levels. We skiied in the morning and then snowshoed up to the cabin in the afternoon. It was a challenging climb, but the hot soup and fresh bread at the cabin made it worth while. Stay on the trails - going... More

It had been a few years since my wife and I had been XC skiing so I just wanted a nice gentle loop. We were staying at the Trapp Family Lodge and XC ski passes are complimentary.....a nice surprise! We brought our own gear and walked over in the early afternoon after a great fresh powder dump the day before.... More

My family and I have been coming to Stowe for years to downhill ski, and on this trip we decided to try cross country (and back country) skiing for the first time. Someone recommended that we speak to Drew at the Trapp Family Lodge, and I'm really glad we did. He sat there for at least a half hour and... More

i did say x-country ski heaven...there were lots of skiers and lots of trail options. However, we were snowshoeing. A great deal less trail options for snowshoers. We snowshoed up to the chapel and then made our way to the cabin for soup. We got off track from the chapel as the map is not really accurate, so the journey... More

Great skiing, great trails! The skiing lodge was warm with a great European feel. There is a lot to do at the Trapp Family Lodge.

We spent the day here xc skiing and it was lovely. The trails were challenging but doable even for novice skiers, and the area was stunning. They do an excellent job grooming. That said, $100 for ski passes and rentals for 2 people and 1 day of skiing seems high to me, but we did really enjoy our experience.

Was a little disappointed, thought we would see more, but was ok. Got to talk to the granddaughter which was pretty cool. She was the tour guide.

Trapp grooms extensively and has the elevation to keep the snow. First week in Feb. plenty of powder when everyone else had crust. A bit pricey but the snow quality was great.

When our hotel desk clerk told me about the Trapp Family Lodge I was in heaven. It's a bit of a drive from Waterbury but so worth it. Your on gravel roads, twists and turns, going up and up. You start to think this must be a mistake, but then you turn into the entrance of the Lodge and the... More
