Picking a place to ski New Year's Day is always special and for New England, Stowe is one of the best. First, only the hard core are up for first chair and on a no line day... it doesn't get much better. Head straight to the fourrunner quad for Goat, Liftline and Starr... awesome runs. If you need a break from the doubles... there's Hayride. Luch at Octagon on the summit has super friendly staff and great views and/or take the gondi up to Cliff House. Apres ski at The Den is where all the locals seem to go... and for real night life there's the village... a classic New England ski town with something for just about everyone. Great place to spend a day... or a week.
Rumor has it Spruce Peak is great for the blues and the families... next year.
