Although the trails were not as carefully groomed as the Von Trapp Family Inn's trails, I enjoyed these trails so much more. It was so quiet and I only met a few other skiers while doing the green loop. The trail went through gorgeous woods...More

We spent a wonderful morning skiing here while visiting Stowe. Despite the crowd (Sunday during a holiday weekend) we had no real issues with traffic on the trails. There is something for everyone of all ability.
