Stowe is called the Ski Capital of the East, and for a good reason.
From skiing to snowboarding, there are plenty of winter sports in the area to keep the entire family entertained. You do not have to be a pro skier either to enjoy the area. In fact, there are plenty of opportunities for non-skiers to enjoy the slopes, fresh powder, and the sights of plush forests covered in blankets of white snow.
