News & Events

Thanks to the 30" of snowfall we've received in the past week on the upper mountain, as well as the hard work of our Mountain Ops Team, we currently have the most open terrain in the East! Today we expect to be enjoying 59 open trails, totaling almost 23 miles and 250+ acres of skiing & riding. Make sure to take advantage of these great early season conditions here at Stowe.

This morning we have mostly cloudy skies over the mountain and today's forecast calls for cloudy skies with a chance of afternoon snow showers or even a squall. High temperatures will range from near 20 degrees at the summit, to near 30 degrees at the base. Winds should be out of the west at 15-30mph across the summit. Looking ahead, a light snowfall is possible tonight and Friday as the active weather pattern continues.

Last night our groomers laid down fresh corduroy on 22 trails, and those trails should have nice packed powder conditions this morning. They also groomed the Fifth Avenue Rail Garden and the Lower North Slope Park, which have a combined 10 freestyle features.

Please Note-- While we are expanding our open terrain, there are some trails that are not ready to be opened for the season. Skiing or riding closed terrain is hazardous to both yourself and to Ski Patrol who may have to come rescue you. Please stay on open trails.

Our snowmaking team fired up the snow guns overnight on Side Street, Lower Smugglers, Catwalk, Competition Hill and Meadows. Depending on daytime temperatures, we may continue to make snow in those same areas today.

Caution

You may find unmarked obstacles such as rocks, ledges, stumps, trees, bare spots and variations in terrain. Do not proceed unless you accept responsibility for your safety and equipment, and are willing to confront all conditions and risks of a mountain environment. Lifts and trails exist in a mountain environment, and may close due to weather, usage and/or special maintenance.

Uphill Travel on Resort Trails is Prohibited during Operational hours. Stowe Mountain resort does not recommend the use of our trails during non-operational hours.

Backcountry Safety

Areas of Stowe Mountain Resort marked outside of the ski area boundary on trail maps and with signage on the mountain itself, is hazardous backcountry terrain, containing unmarked hazards such as cliffs, thick, brushy terrain, riverbeds, stumps, rocks & avalanches. This area is not patrolled or maintained. Vermont law states that any person who uses ski area facilities to access terrain that is outside the open and designated trails shall be liable for any costs of rescue, medical or other services.
