Stowe - best way to get to lifts?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Haven't yet picked my accomodation for my Stowe trip yet, which might affect my proximity. I understand there is a bus that goes around that I think comes every 30-45 minutes. Since I'll be driving to Stowe, I wonder if I should just drive straight to one of the base lodges with my gear?

 

- Flexibility to bring more gear (skis+snowboard, clothes, etc.)

- Come and go just as I please

- Wouldn't be able to drink apres ski since driving!

 

What are your thoughts?

I'd drive just as you mention for the flexibility. This time of year you might want to change out of different jackets etc as well as ski/snowboard depending how the conditions change through out the day. I like going to the Mansfield base lodge for quick easy access to the quad. Could always get a taxi back somewhere if drinking too much for driving.

Do you know if you can park at the base parking lots 24/7? I'd certainly have no concern leaving it there sometimes... if I could. :)

You mean leave it over night? Absolutely not. Plowing.

Midway base lodge no hike up the stupid hill, ski in and ski out.

If only plowing was necessary a few more times this season....

 

Apres is better in town, starting at the Matterhorn and moving down to Piecasso, Sushi Yoshi, O'Grady's and VT Ale house, finishing off at Rimrock's and the Backyard Tavern at 2am if your liver is really in shape or your standards are exceedingly low.
