Seize the Season

Your can't properly winter if you don't get started in the early season, so come up early and winter right.

Stowe's Early Season Experience

The start of winter is rich with tradition in Stowe, on and off the mountain. This year there’s many exciting new ways to turn memories into moments when you winter right. Carve the very first tracks of the day on a freshly groomed mountain all to yourself. Attend quintessential destination events like tree lighting ceremonies and live performances at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center. Start the season strong by taking a lesson designed just for you. Enjoy afternoon artisan craft fairs and evening ice skating. Early season lodging deals help make this the best time to experience traditional New England  in the days leading up to the December holidays.

Amazing Early Conditions

We had an incredible start to the 18/19 season here with over 6 FEET of snow in November. Terrain is open on both Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak, ranging from beginner to expert.
