I'll be going up to Stowe for a professional conference in early March and need some advice. It will be my first time there. I'd appreciate some input on different points on planning this trip.
Accomodations: The conference is at Stowe Mountain Lodge. Should I stay there or are there other hotels/cabins/condos near that would be more economical but convenient?
Lift Tickets: Where to get the best rate?
Equipment: Best rate and most convenient for the area I'll be staying?
Dining/Nightlife: Is Stowe Mountain Lodge near walkable bars/restaurants/town area?
I appreciate your help.
