Overview

Join us for 3 days of gliding on the multiple groomed touring centers in Stowe, VT; staying at the Green Mountain Inn, located right in Stowe Village. After a day outside we can enjoy the ambience of the full-service Inn or can walk to nearby restaurants. 2/6 UPDATE: Our final rooming list was submitted to the hotel on 1/29/2024 as per our contract. New participants can only be accepted subject to Inn availability. We will have daily skis of moderate to vigorous (12-25 daily km) skiing and will tour a different sector of the more than four linked touring centers each day. The terrain varies from some climbing and descending to some mellow flats in stream valleys. All the touring centers are machine groomed, but some of the linking trails may not be groomed but will be packed or tracked out by use. This trip is suitable for enthusiastic novices to vigorous skiers and independent minded skiers will be welcome to go their own pace if they want. While we will be mostly on blue trails, the trail ratings will range from green to black. Beginners are welcome but will be expected to take lessons from the touring center ski schools and once they gain speed and proficiency can join the group skis. Carpools, roommates and dinner groups will be facilitated to our best ability if desired so. Due to space limits, dinner groups should split into groups of 4-6 for the best service. The cost for three nights of lodging and breakfasts is $500 ppdo with single supplements available for $321. At your own cost will be lunch, dinner, and trail fees. To sign up please click through the AMC Waiver by clicking on the "register now" button and fill in the brief google form. Once filling out both a leader will touch base with you then email you a PayPal link to pay your fee and upon receipt, we will confirm you. Refunds for cancellations after 1/28/2024 are contingent on replacing you with another participant and will be made after the trip.
