Took our 3 teens for a day in Stowe- started at the slide. We took them there about 8 years ago and they didn't really remember. So spent about $45 for the 3 of them to refresh their memories.
Chair lift up is nice, trip on slide is quick. We took our own picnic. There are passes to buy which also include a climbing wall and bunji thing and obstacle course (for your kids)... we skipped those as for older kids the alpine was enough for us... we headed over to the Gondola for a great ride up and hike back down.
