post #1 of 6

I'm headed to Stowe next week for the first time.  Any advice?  Anyone want to ski with me?  :)

 

Also, is it worth getting lessons there?

Have heard that Stowe has an excellent ski school.  Are you thinking about a group lesson or a private lesson?  What is your ability level?

Have you looked into their free mtn tour?  depends on your ability level, they have ski ambassadors that can show you around, and take you to trails based on your ability level.  It is at 10 am daily.

I'm open to either group or private lessons.  The private lessons seem pretty expensive though, so I'd want to make sure they are worth it!  I guess I'd say I'm advanced.  I spend most of my time on expert trails (in Pennsylvania), but I am sure I can improve my technique a lot.  The only resort I've been to outside of Pennsylvania is Jackson Hole.  I didn't have any problem with anything on piste.  I could handle the single black diamonds there, but they were challenging.  Did not even attempt a double black diamond.

That sounds great, although http://www.stowe.com/activities/winter/mountain-tours/ makes it sound like it's only on weekends now, and I'm only there from Tuesday to Friday :(

Paging @freeski919 , who is an instructor at Stowe.

For posterity's sake, I did take a group lesson, and it was pretty great.  Would definitely recommend it.
