8) Stowe, Vermont
Located in northern Vermont, the Stowe Mountain Resort has six distinct skiing areas and is made up of two mountains: Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield, and Spruce Peak. For expert skiers there are two double black diamond trails and for beginners there are plenty of easy, wide open runs. Spread out over a total skiable area of 485 acres, Stowe has a total of 116 runs with a lift-served vertical drop of 2,360 feet. For many, though the real draw of a ski vacation in Stowe is Stowe Town itself. A charming colonial town that’s been around since 1763, Stowe is home to a number of historical buildings, many still in use, a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream plant and a number of extremely romantic restaurants and luxurious spa hotels.
