Stowe VT Skiing

Stowe Skiing

Each morning the ritual begins. You make a mental note made of where your boots are stashed. You sling your skis over your shoulder or clutch your snowboard under your arm. It’s time to greet the mountain. The excitement builds as you climb into the chair and put the bar down. You gaze uphill as the chair accelerates up the forested slopes, passing over frozen brooks and snow-laden glades – this place is unlike anywhere else. You look back over your shoulder at the valleys and ridges, farm fields and woodlots, unfolding as far as the eye can see. It’s moments to the top. You adjust your goggles, check your poles, and for a brief moment you’re on the top of the world. Then you drop in. There’s nothing like Skiing and Riding in Vermont.
