Looks like I'm moving to VT (whoo hoo!) and am pricing out passes for Northern VT mountains.

Stowe doesn't list a price for an adult pass on their website. Anyone out there have a pass last year who can give me an estimate on this?

Thanks! =)

Welcome to vt. Stowe won't list until after Labor Day which is, coincidentally, after all other mountain deals are over. Last seasonit was over $1,800 for a single adult pass full season. Save your pennies....

Thanks! Pretty steep cost but that's about what I was expecting.

Worth the $$? Overly crowded on the weekends? I have only been once and it was during a storm, most lifts were closed and I skiied powder all day.

Thinking my $$ might be better spent at Smugg's or Jay.

In my mind, northern New England
Stowe is a great place to ski. No question. However, cost is a personal question. I try to ski Stowe when the budget allows. Last year, they had a promo that let you ski cheaper on Sundays if you had the RFID card. I've looked into the option of getting a season pass. But, much as I love skiing Stowe, I personally didn't think it was worth the cost of a season pass. It was just too steep.

Agreed. Way too much. You can get a pass good for several Colorado resorts for less than 1/2 that price.

Where will you be living in VT ? Planning to ski a lot on weekends or weekdays ?

Burlington area. I ski always on the weekends and some during the week depending on how busy I am with work.

If there is a week day storm chances are I'm playing hooky.

Consider Sugarbush. Good, solid mountain and good service.


How old are you? last year they had a deal for people in their 20s for a season pass. It sounded like it went well, and they would likely do it again. It was an effort to get a younger crowd "sold" on the mountain.

While I like Stowe the town and ski area, if I was living in Burlington I'd probably choose between Jay and Sugarbush. This year you can buy a pass for Jay & Burke, which from what I hear is a great place to ski.

I'm 33. SB or Jay both sound great....pretty big difference in average snowfall though.

Both seem to be about 1 hour 15 minutes to 1.5 hours from Burlington.

If you can get a job with a local Stowe Area Association business, you can score cheap midweek season passes. The last year I lived in town (2001) it was $250 for a M-F Holiday Blackout pass if you worked for a local biz.
