Now's the time of year when everyone is starting to countdown to opening day at the mountain. The excitement of the upcoming season is hard enough for skiers and riders to resist, let alone the resorts. Located on the eastern slopes of Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak, Stowe Mountain Resort is adding to the pre-season stoke with big discounts on pre-booked lodging at their acclaimed Stowe Mountain Lodge. 

Skiers and riders can receive 20 percent off slopeside lodging when they book by November 30. A two-night minimum stay required.

Depending on the size of your crew, Stowe offers a wide selection of studios and suites right up through multi-bedroom residencies and timber-framed mountain cabins. Regardless of which room, suite or home you end up in, you'll be greeted by commanding views of Mt. Mansfield or the surrounding mountain ranges and the convenience of ski-in/ski-out access to some of Vermont's most legendary and challenging terrain.

Stowe understands that its hard to travel when it means leaving your four-legged friends behind and that shouldn't stop you from enjoying the week, or weekend, away from home. Several rooms offer pet-friendly accomodations. And with dining options, pool and a spa and wellness center on the premises, it should be no problem finding a way to unwind after a long day on the slopes.
