News & Events

Persistent light snow has left us with 2-4” of dense snowfall from base to summit in the past 24 hours. That snow really transformed the mountain back into fun mid-winter conditions, and the forecast says we may see just a little more snow tonight before it tapers off. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for cloudy skies with a chance of morning flurries. We may also see some breaks of sunshine in the afternoon, with high temperatures in the teens (summit) and 20s (base).

For tomorrow, we expect to have 83 open trails, serviced by 10 lifts. We also plan to debut the Lower North Slope Medium Terrain Park, so make sure to check out all the hard work our Stowe Parks crew has put in this week. With 30 miles of trails to explore, and a lot of fun skiing & riding for all tastes, now is a great time to visit us at Stowe.

Tonight the grooming team will lay down corduroy stripes on a total of 45 trails, including the steep classic Nosedive, and they will also groom our now 3 open terrain parks (Lower North Slope, Midway, Fifth Ave). The snowmakers will be active over the next 24 hours, as they plan to make snow on the following trails: Main Street Race Course, Hayride, Tyro, Lower North Slope, Lower Standard, and Easy Street.

Lastly, due to construction this winter all public parking will be happening on the Mt Mansfield side of the resort, which is a left turn off Route 108. If you need to get to Spruce Peak, including the Spruce Camp Base Lodge, the Ski & Ride School, the Seasons Pass Desk, and our excellent beginner terrain, please park in Lot B and take the Over Easy Transfer Gondola into Spruce Plaza.
