Stowe XC Von Trapp

One of our favorite place the Von Trapp Family lodge below

Here is the story about the Von Trapps. And by the way, I met Marie Von Trapp about three times and introduced her to Arden before she died – what a fine lady.

We took the train there, the Vermonter below how cool is thatThe lodge is situated on 2,500 acres in beautiful Stowe, Vermont, and is a mountain resort in the European tradition designed and run the von Trapp family that inspired “The Sound of Music”. This unique luxury mountain resort features Austrian-inspired architecture and European-style accommodations. Lodge in

Lodge in Back ground.  Open year-round, the Trapp Family Lodge offers superb mountain views, old world comforts and impeccable service, along with activities for every season. It has pools, spas, and workout facility with fine dinning. Near to the lodge and ski center is the downhill resort of Stowe and that is possibly the finest ski spot in the East coast for downhill ski. That is another story but here is a photo of Arden and I on the top in the summer below

Our private villa at Von Trapp below

We stayed in a villa and wow it was over the top in the photo above.

We went cross-country skiing of course and it was over the top. We saw many racers practicing their skills. So the Von Trapp ski center is home to the first cross-country ski center in the country, the 100-kilometer trail network includes terrain suitable for every level of skier or snowshoer.

For those looking for cross country ski vacations in New England in general or Stowe, Vermont in particular, Trapp Family Lodge is the perfect choice for certain!! .

Arden went snowshoeing (above )and had a great time. Snowshoeing is just one of our many outdoor activities.

Warming lodge above Expertly taught classes and clinics cover everything you’ll need to know before venturing out onto the trails (or off the trails), from understanding binding systems and choosing the right clothing to efficient, energy saving techniques for steep hill climbs. You may want to join one of our scheduled Stowe, Vermont group snowshoeing tours. Or, if you prefer going out on your own but are not familiar with the terrain, we can help you plan a route that suits your experience and confidence.The town of Stowe is really quaint and small above. We had a ncie dinner there in the Green Mountain inn as well . Some cross Country Ski photos below
