The town of Stowe, Vermont, straps on its ski heritage with gusto. Inns, shops, and restaurants all proudly display their own private cache of memorabilia. On Main Street, the old meetinghouse is now the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum, filled with old-fashioned lift chairs, retro ski gear, and vintage Burton snowboards.
But there’s much more to the self-proclaimed “Ski Capital of the East,” as writer Annie Graves explains in the January/February 2019 issue of Yankee. There’s also an impressive array of restaurants, artisanal beer and cider makers, a fun downtown shopping scene, and overnight accommodations that hit the sweet spot between low-key and high-end.
