While Stowe has long been regarded as the “Ski Capital of the East”, outdoor adventures and wilderness enthusiasts are certain to be delighted year-round. Spring is sugaring season in Vermont, and the Stowe/Smugglers’ Notch area is bountiful in Maple Sugaring Houses.  Separated by scenic Smugglers’ Notch Pass (closed seasonally between November and mid-May), ridge line hiking on the Long Trail is available year-round, although hikers are encourage to stay on durable ground while the ground thaws in the Spring.  Topped by Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s tallest peak, Stowe offers novice hikers the opportunity in the Summer to drive to the ridge line by the historic Toll Road.  Experienced hikers and bikers are provided numerous access routes from easy to challenging third class scrambles. Climbing adventures are available year-round in the Notch.  From long, multi-pitch ice climbs in the winter, to world-class bouldering in the summer, the Notch is alive with activity.  Bikers will also find Stowe to be a great place to stay.  More than 40 miles of single track are available for the moderate to experienced mountain-biker, while the paved, Stowe bike trail provides a leisurely ride for novices.  Fall is perhaps the most brilliant time to explore Stowe.  Leaf peeping peaks in the end of September to mid-October and the mountain glow orange and red.
