Stoweflake – no place quite as magical!

by Sandra

Top 10 things about Stoweflake in the winter.

There is something irresistible about Stowe in winter. Although Stowe is known as the ski capital of the east, there is so much more to do. Stoweflake’s 5km of cross country and nordic trails are connected to hundreds of trails in the area. Whether you choose a dog sledding tour or a horse drawn sleigh ride, fireside après-ski at Charlie B’s is the place to be. The Spa at Stoweflake features “warm-me-up” treatments such as the après-ski massage and maple sugar body polish. If that’s not for you, take a dip in our heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi or warm up and relax under the spa’s unique Bingham Falls hydrotherapy. In short, there is no place quite as magical as Stowe – and Stoweflake, in the winter.

Favorite after work food and drink – what and where?

Katie’s Martini at the Bar at Charlie B’s with cornmeal crusted oysters served with chipotle aioli. Yum!

Stowe has great skiing/boarding at both Stowe and nearby Smuggs. For those who want to take a break from the ski resorts for a day what would you recommend?

Start your day with a fitness class and then roll into our world class spa for a whirpool steam or sauna in the private men’s and women’s sanctuary lounges or spend the day browsing in one of many specialty boutiques within walking distance of Stoweflake.

Best part about living/working in VT?

Although the lack of traffic jams and gorgeous scenery in my daily commute is truly special, it is the people that make Vermont the ideal place to live and work, especially the women that are so caring and supportive of each other. Plus living in Vermont lends itself to a healthy lifestyle with endless activities to choose from.

Anything new for Stoweflake this winter?

Our new 80 minute Sacred Stone Massage: A nurturing treatment that combines a warm stone massage with the healing principles of Ayurveda. The primary focus is to calm the nervous system.

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian science of life and wellness. It establishes an understanding of your individual body type, and its current imbalances, which can cause skin problems, weight gain, sleep issues, digestive complaints, joint pain and more. Ayurveda focuses on the root of the problem and solutions that will regain balance – allowing your body to heal itself.
