Vermont is where skiing began in America and is where you’ll find a wide variety of great ski resorts. Vermont Ski Areas attract thousands of skiers every ski season, and this year the skiing promises to be better than ever.
A century ago, Vermonters decided they needed a recreational activity to alleviate the mental stress of winter dreariness. Little did they know just how radically this developed pastime would affect the reputation of their state. Norwegians living in Stowe had already begun a ski revival in order to navigate impassable roads, and, while at first deemed crazy by onlookers, it wasn’t long before the frenzy took off. The country’s first ski race took place in Mansfield in 1934. These days, the only market in New England that Vermont monopolizes more is the maple syrup industry. Perhaps not tantamount to the Rockies when it comes to height and feather-light powder, Vermont excels on the wetter east coast. Snowfalls average anywhere from 140 to 340 inches. Large, small, steep, mellow—the state doesn’t discriminate: beginners and experts alike can get their fill, from the frenzy of Killington to the family-friendly powder of Smuggler’s Notch.
Nestled under the backdrop of Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest and most majestic peak, is Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa. Here you will discover the exquisite combination of facilities unrivaled anywhere in New England, as well as hospitality inspired by the family who has owned and operated Stoweflake for three generations.
Spa at Stoweflake features Aqua Solarium. You won’t believe your eyes, so trust your body. Just when you thought you’d seen and experienced it all, the soothing thunder of a twelve-foot-high massaging waterfall draws you into the Aqua Solarium. The Spa at Stoweflake’s signature feature, the Bingham Hydrotherapy Waterfalls and Hungarian Mineral Soaking Pool, are a unique and wonderful way to drown out the outside world, and wash any lingering stress away.
