by GO STOWE
As we begin to peek out of winter hibernation, be the first to experience Stowe’s spirit come alive this spring! Whether you are looking to glide through the soft snow or sample our freshly tapped maple syrup, spring in Stowe is for you. Take advantage of the longer days with sunnier skies and lodging deals. Read on for activities to fill up your spring days only in Stowe.
Play Under the Spring Sun
Swoosh! Strap on those boots and click in your skis or board to experience an East Coast spring on the slopes. March and April are known to have some of the best skiing and riding of the season. Named #1 Ski Resort in Eastern U.S. by Ski Magazine, Stowe Mountain Resort caters to all skier and rider levels. Book a lesson and a pass now to get ahead on planning.
Not into skiing or riding? Snowshoeing in the woods is a great way to refocus and recharge. Equipment rentals are available at Stowe’s outdoor outfitters. Alternatively, get knee-deep into area streams for early spring fishing. Local guides and experts from The Fly Rod Shop and Catamount Fishing Adventures offer tours and advice to make your spring fishing trip a memorable one.
Tap into Spring
Your taste buds will be screaming to sample our local taps—maple or brew—this spring. Prepare yourself for some sticky, syrupy fingers. It’s well worth it since Vermont knows maple syrup—the state produces nearly half of the crop in the U.S.! In February and March, maple trees are tapped, launching the local maple sugar houses into production. Take a tour and learn how the sweet stuff is made. Be sure to select and stock up on our authentic Vermont maple syrup from Trapp Family Lodge, Nebraska Knoll, and Stowe Maple Products.
Another way to “tap” into spring is by sampling local craft beverages. Find homemade beer made right at Idletyme Brewing Co. and von Trapp Brewing Bierhall. Not a beer fan? Sip on a glass of wine from Dedalus Wine or Cork Restaurant & Natural Wine Shop. Field Guide Lodge also hosts wine tastings with the local Ellison Estate Vineyard. And for cider lovers…look no further than Stowe Cider or Cold Hollow Cider Mill.
Spring Into Stowe’s Culture & Wellness
Watch Stowe’s creative life spring into action, and be inspired by Stowe’s vibrant arts and culture scene. Attend a performance at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center or check out our local glass blowers like Little River Hotglass Studio. Take a moment for yourself this spring to unwind from a busy winter. Relax with ease at one of our local spas such as the Spa at Stoweflake or the Spa at Spruce Peak, or book an appointment with Empower MedSpa this season.
Spring on Sweet Deals
Spring is appropriately a time for sweet deals. Take advantage of lodging deals like the 96 Hour Sale that ends February 11. Stowe, Vermont offers lodging options for every taste and budget—from boutique hotels and slopeside resorts, to condos and B&Bs. Book early to secure the best available lodging rates of the season.
