Discover the benefits of late spring skiing in Stowe.
Stowe, Vermont has always been known as a skier’s paradise, but not just because of its variety of slopes that cater to every skill level. Many may just picture skiing as a winter pursuit, being bundled up in so many layers that it is hard to grasp your poles. Yet although the peak season of skiing will always fall during the winter months, you don’t need to fight through the crowds and the wrath of Mother Nature to enjoy skiing the slopes of The Green Mountain State as many resorts in the area are open through April. Not all areas of the East Coast can offer spring skiing as the milder temperature make it harder to keep the power on the slopes. Yet late spring skiing in Stowe is possible due to our higher elevations and a little bit of expert manmade snowmaking!
Skiing in Stowe
Three of the most popular destinations for skiing in Stowe offer springtime action on their slopes. In March and April, our area can still provide a lot of natural snowfall and have even proven to be some of the snowiest months of the year. Even when the sun is shining, and you can find yourself wearing a t-shirt out on the slopes, Wildcat Mountain in Pinkham Notch, Mount Sunapee in Lake Sunapee and Mount Snow in Somerset are all open for some serious shredding. Each of these venues have their own special events that cater to the spring months such at Wildcat Mountain’s famous Cat Scratch Fever and the annual pond skim. Better yet, as it is no longer peak season, the lift ticket prices are available at a reduced price.
This may be the perfect time for any beginner skiers to test out their own talents on the slopes. Not only is the weather warmer and the expense much lower, but the amount of people on the mountains themselves will be decreased. If you come to the area to ski and don’t have equipment, don’t worry. There are a variety of outfitters from Pinnacle Ski & Sports to Stowe’s #1 Rental Shop, AJ’s Ski and Sports, that have rentals available on all you will need. From skis and boards to gloves, masks, and clothes, you will be able to be fully outfitted for your skiing getaway before you even arrive as they both offer online reservations.
