While Stowe is a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders, it was also named a “New England Ski Town that Even a Non-Skier can Love” by the Boston Globe. Stowe’s landscapes, trails and mountains are just waiting to be explored by locals and visitors. Snowshoeing is a great way to get outside – whether you’re on vacation or a local resident.
