If you ask us, there’s really no better winter playground anywhere in the country than Stowe, Vermont.
We know, we know: There are many fabulous places to go play in the white stuff and otherwise embrace the snowy season to the fullest. All we’re saying is, Stowe’s an honest-to-goodness wintertime paradise, and our boutique luxury inn here at Edson Hill gives you well-appointed front-row seats for it all.
Here are some of the fantastic winter activities you can get up to while savoring our hillside hospitality!
Snowsports & Outdoor Recreation
Diverse and ridiculously high-quality winter outdoor recreation awaits you in the Stowe area.
There is, of course, some of the most fabled downhill skiing and snowboarding in New England just a stone’s throw from Edson HIll at Stowe Mountain Resort, which includes nearly 500 skiable acres on the slopes of Mount Mansfield (crown of the Green Mountains and Vermont’s highest summit) and Spruce Peak. Some 40 miles of trails and more than 2,300 feet of vertical help define the alpine experience at Stowe Mountain Resort, which enjoys some 314 inches of annual snowfall and 83% snowmaking coverage.
Stowe’s also one of the foremost places in the U.S. for cross-country skiing, enjoyed from Stowe Mountain Resort itself to the Stowe Recreation Path and myriad National Forest trailheads. In fact, our own property here at Edson Hill is a superlative place for both Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, thanks for our historic trail network and fine backcountry access.
Then there’s fat biking, ice-fishing, snowmobiling, and even dog-sledding, offered by multiple outfitters and tour operators in the region.
And whether in the thick of the holiday season or not, you’ve got multiple options for such charming, crowd-pleasing winter pleasures as ice skating and horse-drawn sleigh rides, too…
