It's a game changer. I really prefer taking longer laps and appreciate Stowe for it in a big way. Wildcat and Le Massif are the only other places where I'm likely to take a majority of my runs with 2000+ feet of vert. Midweek at Smuggs is possible, too (only hit it once on a weekend and spent more time on Sterling to avoid the Madonna I line).Best part about Stowe is the continuous vertical.
Most have been listed. Here are my favorites:
Upper & Lower FIS - Mt Ellen SB - Including off chutes
Paradise - Fall Line - Creamery area at MRG
Domino and Moonshine at Lincoln Peak SB
Cat Walk at Killington
I used to love Double Dipper woods before they ruined that area when installing the lift.
Original Front 4. Chin Clip. Lord - Stowe
Any of the front runs coming off the snow fields and down below at Sugarloaf
Uppercut - Cross Bow - Lock Line - Tightwire at Sunday River
Timbuktoo - Kitzbul - Vertigo - Everglade - Green Barret at Jay
Robins at Smuggs
Back on topic
I was thinking about runs in New England and many of the ski areas with 2000+ very break top to bottom runs up into multiple labeled trails to create a complete run.
Vista Way -> Bypass -> Extension -> Avalanche it has a nice mixed bag of stuff (views, bumps, sections to let it rip, etc)

Spruce: Sterling into Whirlaway is fun when its in sporty condition. A good hideaway from the masses.
Whirlaway is one of my favorite trails at Stowe & perhaps the most underrated. When I worked there I was stationed at Spruce 95% of the time & sometimes I'd get out early at 2pm or 3pm, grab my skis from my truck, and lap it. The little rock band in the middle of the trail's fun for faux hero jumps.
