Nordic skiing in Stowe, Vermont

Winter is Better Together

Any weekend together at Sun & Ski Inn is a special time, but here are some of our favorite activities to do with a loved one or the entire family, to make your Valentine’s day extra sweet.

Cross Country Ski or Snowshoe on the Recreation Path 

Begin right from your room and stop at a few of our favorite spots along the way, or make your way up towards the mountain to enjoy groomed trails. Ski or snowshoe right up to Stowe Cider to sample some ciders, then stop for a late lunch at Sushi Yoshi. A day on skis or snowshoes on your own time, what could be better? Visit Stowe Nordic’s website to see all of the area’s groomed trails along with maps.

Ice Skate Under the Stars with a Private Firepit Pergola

This experience will bring you up to Spruce Peak, and is a great way to be a part of the mountain life at night. Reservations are required and can be made here. There is a fee for the rental of the Pergola and firepit (in addition to food and drinks that you may be ordering), but we love this idea for a family date night. If you are on a budget, but still want the experience, plan to ice skate and pick-up some yummy snacks from Edelweiss. You can still grab hot cocoa or another beverage to enjoy from the Whistle Pig Pavillion after you skate!

A Winter Walk in the Woods

Stowe is blessed with so many opportunities to recreate, including the vast trail system and conserved property for all to access via the Stowe Land Trust. A winter hike at locations such as Wiessner or Kirchner woods are a few of our favorites. Both will put you right into the heart of a scenic forest. To reward yourself, follow-up your walk with hot cocoa and a pastry from PK Coffee or Woodland Baking & Coffee.

Boutique Bowling & Dessert “To-go

We always save the best for last, and this is no exception. Bowling is a great way to get everyone to laugh and enjoy your time together. Bowling right at your hotel at our very own Stowe Bowl, with great food, drinks, and desserts is even better! Make sure to book a reservation in advance to secure your lane time, and do not forget to check out the desserts on the menu. You can even request your desserts to-go and enjoy it together from your room.

We hope these ideas got you excited for the sweetest holiday of them all. Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our guests, employees, family, and friends!
