Stowe, Vermont has been know for decades as “THE SKI CAPITAL OF THE EAST”. For the past two decades Stowe has seen the four season resort business expand to the point where the local business community sees about 60% of its income in the non-winter months. This has occurred because of a huge volunteer effort by many members of the community to bring interesting events to Stowe in May-October. Nearly every weekend sees some type of special event. In addition, an expansion of golfing, tennis, fishing, hiking & horseback opportunities has occurred.
More than a resort destination, Stowe is a community. Stowe has an outstanding local government with all services including expert town highway maintenance in the winter, police, fire & rescue services as well as one of Vermont’s best Hazardous Terrain rescue teams, a large recreation department providing services to locals & visitors alike with hockey, tennis, athletic fields and the 5 mile recreation path. In addition Stowe has a fantastic school system with over 92% of all graduates going on to college.
The local extended area also boasts a great hospital with an excellent emergency room and great care for all visitors needs.
