To be fair, the new snow made conditions perfect. The trails were laid out well to allow both a novice or more experienced recreational skier many hours of fun in the valley or surrounding ridges. Well groomed for classic Nordic or skating. The beautiful stream(s) added to the esthetics, with bridges that were wide and substantial. All in all, a very thoughtfully designed trail system that rambles easily. The warming hut is spartan, with no heat source when we were there mid-week.

The narrow and beautiful Classic trail reminded me of groomed trails in the 1970's when even a mild downgrade could be challenging. Check it out!

We spent two days cross country skiing out of this touring center. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. There are a variety of trails at a number of levels and you can ski over to the Trapps trails if you want. The trails are well-maintained and there are skinny "classic" trails as well. A "don't miss" in Stowe.

My young daughter referred to this place as an "Alpine Dream"! The trails here are immaculate and it is definitely a secret because we only ran into a handful of skiers during the three hours we were there. You ski past beautiful rocky streams and lots of birch trees, so very scenic. Beware that the beginner's trail is actually very difficult because we ended skiing upwards over 200 feet! But its a long slow gradual trail so its possible to get through it, but you will definitely feel it two days later! The staff were grooming the trails and keeping it top notch while we were there and we also ran into one of the staff skiing around making sure everyone was okay. Will definitely return but need to get in better shape first! Its worth every penny since it is absolutely beautiful.

Very nice trails. Grooming done throughout the day when needed. Also, the downhill ski resort allows x-country skiers to use the one chairlift closest to the ski center and what a blast to ride up after skiing all day to take a final trip down the mountain!
