Okay to start you can not love this place. This place has the greatest varying in terrain in the east. The "Front Four" are totally great if you are vary experinced. The mountain has a great vibe and the people are vary nice. There are so many powder stash if you know where to look. The mountain events are vary fun to watch and be a part of. I go every febuary when the snow i think is the best. The village also is great and the last time i went it was in the middle of a cross country ski race which was fun to watch. Im going in feb of 2010 and there scheduling fire works which will make the stowe experince better.
