Cross Country Ski + Snowshoe
Come explore and play on Edson Hill’s historic trail network
Edson Hill’s historic trail network was created by the Heath Family in the 1950s. Maintained by an old “Trucker” snowcat with skis on the front, Larry Heath remembers skijoring with guests way back then. Edson Hill’s current team has been working hard to bring the trails and our entire nordic offering back to its glory while providing our guests and all of Stowe with another great ski area for groomed cross country skiing, side- and back-country access as well as snowshoeing.

Every single thing is close to perfection. The setting is breathtaking, with fantastic views, and gorgeous trails to cross country ski or snowshoe in winter, and hike in summer. This year we did a family cross country ski lesson, and our instructor was patient, positive, and an excellent teacher.
