The hills above Stowe are alive with cross-country skiing and snowshoeing at the Trapp Family Lodge. The 35 miles of groomed trails (snowshoers are welcome on all of them plus about 4 miles of their own) are at the heart of Stowe’s extensive network of some 90 miles of groomed trails. The four centers—Trapp, Edson Hill Manor, Topnotch, and Stowe Mountain Touring Center—in the shadows of impressive Mount Mansfield, are interconnected. The upscale Trapp Family Lodge takes credit for being the first commercial Nordic center in the United States. Located up in the hills with panoramic views of the Stowe Valley and surrounding mountains, the wide, neatly groomed trails of the network are novice and intermediate friendly. Beginners can stay near the ski center in the lower elevations, making an easy loop along the tree-lined Sugar Road to Russell Knoll Track. But those seeking more of a challenge and impressive mountain views can try their skill on the Slayton Pasture Cabin/Haul Road Loop. Surface quality: Groomed, single track, double track.
