The gondola, the views, the woods, the size
Well I went to Stowe for two days (Tues & Weds) in Feb after we had just received 50+ inches and because of wind they had closed the quad lift and the gondola so Tuesday we had fresh powder all over the place. It was my first time at Stowe mainly because of the price but this was to get my AASI certification so the lift tickets were included in the cost of the class. We ran thru the woods most of the day and worked on teaching techniques and styles. The weather was amazing and riding with people that work on the mountain was great. We slid over groomers, woods, terrain parks, and a half pipe. Those two days made my season and I was so fortunate the snow gods blessed us. Well worth the money if you can afford it.
