Families will especially love a Stowe ski vacation, since the entire Spruce Peak base area was designed with them in mind. The Spruce Camp base lodge houses a children’s adventures center and a learn to ski or ride center, making it a great epicenter for beginner skiers or boarders. The area features a magic carpet, and two lifts that access only green runs. Spruce Peak is a great place for families of varying abilities, as the more advanced skiers and boarders can find several intermediate runs, as well as a couple black diamonds at the top of the mountain.
Intermediates will have an absolute blast skiing off of Mount Mansfield, with sustained groomers like Gondolier or Perry Merrill. All the chairlifts from the Mansfield Base Lodge area access plenty more blue runs for intermediates looking to explore. Experts have a great gladed area called Waterfall just off the top of the Gondola. Experts in search of challenging, bumped-out steeps should head up Fourrunner Quad.
