Snowmaking Upgrades at Stowe

This year Stowe Mountain Resort continues to invest in its state-of-the-art snowmaking operations with an additional 4.7 million dollars in new equipment and upgrades that include - 325 HKD tower guns, 150 energy efficient land guns, 16 Super Pole Cat fan guns and seven miles of new snowmaking pipe. In addition to supplementing its already superlative snowmaking, this year’s improvements will allow Stowe to operate with greater energy efficiency and eliminate 100,000 gallons of diesel storage, use and emissions. From a skier’s and rider's standpoint, the new snowmaking increases potential for more early season terrain, increases overall snow quality and allows our mountain operations crew to resurface the mountain quicker.

We tested the system on October 13 at the base area with mild temps around 32 degrees - and it was a complete success.

Check out the video:


We plan to open on November 17!

Remember to buy your Season Pass before October 31 to save big!

Embracing Summer at Stowe Mountain Resort

We sure do love the beautiful powdery-white winters here on Mount Mansfield, and this last one was no different. It was a bit of a challenge, sure, but our Mountain Operations team set us up for some truly phenomenal days on the hill. Today, that same crew is busy prepping and installing a massive off-season investment in snowmaking to ensure next winter is even better than ever. You'll hear much more about that throughout the summer…

In the meantime, this is Stowe, Vermont and we always look forward to beginning a new season here at the resort. The mountain has turned a brilliant, lush green and where our cars were packed with skis and snowboards just a little while ago, now golf bags, kayaks and bikes have taken over for the next few months. Stowe Mountain Golf Club, for members and guests of Stowe Mountain Lodge and the Stowe Country Club, are open, both offering one-of-a-kind Golf experiences. You can also drive to the top of Vermont on the Mount Mansfield Auto Toll Road any day of the week.

Our Summer Mountain Adventure Camp, for kids ages 3-12, runs every Monday through Saturday weekly from June 18th through September 1st. Give the gift of adventure to your kids for 1 day, 5 days or even a full season’s worth of new skills, friends, memories and fun!

As of June 23, all of Stowe Mountain Resort's summer attractions will be open, including the Gondola SkyRide, Alpine Slide, Bungee Trampoline, Climbing Wall, and Inflatable Obstacle Course. We've also got unique restaurants, such as the Cliff House at the top of the Gondola, opening for lunch daily at the same time.

So we've taken a deep breath, switched out our ski boots for hiking boots, and we are ready for another adventure-filled summer season at Stowe Mountain Resort. We're not just patiently awaiting the return of winter. No, we've completely embraced the potential of the season at hand. Have you? What are your plans for the summer?
