Skiing In Vermont

Vermont ski mountains continue to make improvements for the upcoming 2015-16 season, according to “What’s New for the Ski Vermont 2015-16 Season?” by Ski Vermont. Snow-making efficiency upgrades and adding more space and amenities are on the docket to make your ski experience even better this year. These enhancements paired with an Old Farmer’s Almanac predicted colder and snowier winter could mean another stellar season for those flocking to Vermont mountains to ride the “pow!”

Right up the road for our Stowe office, Stowe Mountain Resort will soon unveil a new building that adds more family-fun amenities and services, including an ice rink, Adventure Center and Alpine Clubhouse. Skiers and riders will also have more shopping and dining options during their stays on the mountain. Bolton Valley, only a quick half-hour drive from Stowe, is adding a new restaurant, South of Solitude, that will freshen the resort’s eatery options plus their team has even more ski and snowboard inventory for those needing a rental to hit the trails.

The agents in our St. Johnsbury office are excited for the Q Burke Mountain’s new conference center, adding another meeting space option, or, after work, a place to dine and relax alongside some of the best views in Vermont.

And our newest associates in Stratton will see an expanded base lodge and improved telecommunications infrastructure. The resort is even adding a webcam at the summit to broadcast mountain conditions (and shenanigans!).

If you are looking forward to ski season as much as we are, then contact our agents today. We know Vermont real estate, how to plan a Vermont ski vacation, and of course, we can help you love Vermont as much as we do! Don’t forget… the mountains open soon.

Stowe Ranked Top 20 Small Town

Why do we love our small town? History, recreation, music and a localvore food culture are just a few of the accolades Stowe received in “The 20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2015” list from Smithsonian Magazine!

The fourth annual version of the Smithsonian’s list ranks small towns (those with a population under 20,000) according to their “number of cultural attractions, historical sites, nature opportunities and food-and-drink destinations.”

Stowe garnered the No. 18 spot for musical theater history at the Trapp Family Lodge (with skiing and beer, too), diverse performances at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center and exhibits at the Helen Day Arts Center (including the upcoming Exposed!). Residents and visitors to the area know they have both the natural beauty of mountains and rivers and an exceptional array of artistic beauty out their doors.

Stowe offers some of the best skiing in New England, as well as charm, history, great dining and shopping. Our Main Street has a quaint charm and an abundance of shops and eating establishments. Whether you are on a budget or want to soak in luxury, you can find your niche in Stowe.

Among others on the “20 Best Small Towns” list were Estes Park, Colorado; Vernal, Utah; Whitefish, Montana; and Nashville, Indiana. Stowe is honored to be included with these other outstanding towns!
