Fun in the Snow During a Stowe Vermont Winter
Start Christmas morning off in one of our Stowe vacation rentals, where you know you’ll have the amenities available for the perfect trip. Enjoy a cup of hot coffee as you take in the stillness of the morning while the ground is blanketed by freshly fallen snow, during the Stowe, Vermont winter.
Bundle up and take the seasonal shuttle from town out to the mountain to let the kids build forts and have a snowball fight or try out snowshoeing down one of the trails. For all the skiers in your group, there is plenty of fun to go around. Cross-country skiing is even available, along with classic downhill skiing – not to mention snowboarding!
Would any Stowe, Vermont Christmas vacation be complete without a sleigh ride through the snow? Load up the whole family in either a 4- or 10-seater sleigh and sing “Jingle Bells” as you glide through Vermont’s winter wonderland. For a more exhilarating ride, check out the dog sledding options available in Stowe. You’ll hop on a sled and let the fast and friendly dog team pull you around, with all of their infectious energy and excitement!
There are plenty of delicious restaurants and breweries in Stowe for the most discerning foodie. If you want something a little different than beer, head to Stowe Cider to sample some locally-made hard cider. Give the kids a treat by going on the Ben & Jerry’s Factory tour. They’ll love to see what goes into their favorite ice cream, and there are free samples to boot!
You won’t want to leave Vermont without stopping at the Cabot Cheese Annex Store, where you can stock up on the “World’s Best Cheddar” and delicious Lake Champlain Chocolates, not to mention handcrafted goods to bring to the folks back home.
The memories you make this year will be about much more than the gifts. Your family will always remember their Stowe, Vermont Christmas trip, where they explored nature, had new experiences, and simply enjoyed the time together.
