Full review

We have skied many east coast hills and although Killington has more runs, Stowe's runs are much more interesting, some just as challenging (well almost) and the snow conditions in a terrible weather week were good to very good. I can only imagine how good it is with powder. You can ski top to bottom on some trails like Hayride, Nosedive, Perry Merrill, and Gondolier (and others if you dare) without traversing. The kids enjoyed the parks even though they are small. The skiers and even most boarders were intermediates and up so you did not constantly need eyes in the back of your head like some hills in southern Vt. They also keep the beginners on either side of the mountain which helps. What really impressed us was the lodges. They are modern, clean and well located. The food was uniformly better than Vail or Deer Valley and that is saying a lot. Ski school was well run and so was the daycare. We will definitely be back.
