Snowshoeing for Everyone
No matter what the weather or conditions, snowshoeing is a winter activity that can be enjoyed by all, even those without experience. Follow your guide along the Mill Trail past the old Turner Mill blacksmith shop and Dr. Marguerite Lichtenthaeler’s historic cabin, and continue to the majestic Bingham Falls Gorge. Or explore the historic Ranch Valley and Ranch Brook at the foot of Mt. Mansfield, the birthplace of skiing in Stowe. This is a guided tour so please call a week in advance to schedule.
Cost: $130 per couple (before tax) for 1.5 to 2 hours and includes equipment. Difficulty: you can set the pace at which you feel comfortable — easy to moderate; space is limited so call ahead. Cancellations require a 48 hour notice.
Backcountry Snowshoe Adventure
Get away from it all and avoid the crowds …except maybe for a Moose! Discover an undiscovered part of Stowe well off the established trail. Begin near the foot of Mt. Mansfield on Notch Brook and the Green Mountain State Forest and two permanently preserved Stowe Land Trust properties. You will cover Notch Brook, Bingham Falls, Ranch Valley, Sterling Pond, Taylor Lodge, and Taft Lodge. This is a guided tour so please call a week in advance to schedule.
Cost is $180 per couple (before tax but includes equipment rentals). Difficulty: you can set the pace at which you feel comfortable — i.e., moderate to difficult over a three hour morning or afternoon. Space is limited; please call a week in advance. Cancellations require a 48 hour notice.
