Reindeer quest
Whether you like to spend the weekend browsing all the eccentric shops that make up the village of Stowe or you already have your favorite places that satisfy your need to shop, the Stowe Reindeer Quest shopping event will have you coming back for more!  From November 15 through December 24, visitors can shop at participating retail stores, have a chance at winning some of the over $10,000 in prizes, and join in on the fun – here’s how it works:

SHOP at participating retail stores and
receive a stamp on your Reindeer
Quest Card with each RQ bubblespurchase. (Pick up your Reindeer Quest Card at your first shop!) 

COLLECT stamps on four different reindeer on your Quest Card by making purchases at four or more shops. You’ll need a combination of Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixon, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen or Rudolph. Can't find a shop to get that 4th reindeer stamped? Hint: shops have posters in their store windows indicating which reindeer they are stamping.

CASH IN! Redeem your stamped Quest Card at the Stowe Visitor’s Center for prizes (to be determined). 

YOU COULD WIN!

INSTANT PRIZES! When you redeem your stamped Quest Card at the Stowe Visitor’s Center, you’ll get to draw for a $20 gift certificate right on the spot, so you can use it for more holiday shopping! 

WEEKLY PRIZES! Your stamped Quest Card will be entered into weekly drawings for fabulous prizes such as: snowshoe tours, ski gear, gift baskets, spa services, Vermont handmade products and more! Prizes are given weekly so the earlier you do your shopping the more chances you have to win! Drawings are held on Mondays at 9am.

Sound like fun?  We knew you’d love it!  So come and visit us here in Stowe, reserve a stay at the Green Mountain Inn and shop ‘till you drop during the Stowe Reindeer Quest adventure.  We’ll help you relax after a full day with luxurious accommodations and amenities like in-room Jacuzzis and pillow-top, four-poster beds.  We can’t wait to welcome you!
