In Northern Vermont lies a quaint town with a population of around five-thousand. While its description may sound unassuming, just one glance at this idyllic hamlet will show you why this is a nationally acclaimed destination for tourists year-round.
Recently named by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the best places to travel in February, Stowe is a great spot for a weekend getaway during the wintery months, as it’s well known for its ski resorts and picturesque, old-fashioned town that only looks better with a fresh layer of snow.
USA Today also recently named Stowe as one of the best ski towns in North America in 2021. Stowe Mountain Resort got a special shoutout in the 10 best ski resorts and the Trapp Family Lodge made the list for the 10 best ski hotels.
With two different mountains in the area, Spruce Peak and Mount Mansfield, Stowe Mountian Resort is unique in that a ski lift connects the two— so you can easily ski down both in the same day. With a vast array of intermediate to black diamond runs, t’s no wonder they call Stowe the Ski Capital of the East. There’s even a ski and snowboard museum in town!
In the village of Stowe, there’s no shortage of charming accommodations, from cozy inns to B&Bs. A steepled church in downtown makes for a post-card-worthy view, and small local vendors sell their homemade goods at general stores, home goods, and winery along Main Street.
