Decided after 24 years living in northern Vermont and skiing Stowe, Smuggs and Jay all the time to cross the boarder and check out Owl's Head. It was only a 15-20 minute drive past Jay and the boarder crossing at North Troy was very quick and easy. I found Owl's Head to be a real hidden gem. The views are amazing. The mountain has good vertical 1770', and little to no runout on it's trails. Challenging intermediate and experts terrain with excellent grooming. A bit on the ferm/icy side the day I was there, but so is everywhere in Vermont with lack of fresh snow resently. Apears to be a lot of good glades and woods skiing available with some fresh snow. Best of all is the price. Liftopia.com has a $25 CND ticket good on Tuesday and Wednesday that's $19 USD! No crowds on a Tuesday and nice employees. I am looking forward to coming back again soon.
