This mountain is primarily known for it's winter skiing but there is plenty to do in other seasons. There are hiking trails, rides to the summit, beautiful scenery...a gorgeous place to visit.

We were there during the Stella storm so the conditions were amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better trip with two boys aged 12 and 13. Totally exhausting and totally an amazing trip. Can't wait to go back next year.

Stowe was at its best this week with tons of new snow. Seemed more like a big western mountain than a new england gem...unable to cover entire mountain in one day...definitely stay for 2 (or 3!)

Not much has changed on Mansfield since I was there years ago (compared to across the road at Spruce!). The Quad is faster, which is nice, and the Gondola is still the most comfortable ride up. Love the variety - from the challenging Quad runs,...More

The best ski area in the East. Loaded with traditions, one comes here to make their own memories. Every trio is a new experience, for families of all ages there is not a better place to come.

amazing hike! we went all the way to the top. Guides that say this is easy to moderate are grading on the Vermont scale. I highly suggest you be in good shape when you go.

How long does the gondola take, one way? And how frequent does it run?

Every ten minutes. One way about ten minutes also.

Booked July hiking trip to Mt. Mansfield with 3 dogs and 6 people departing from Stowe Mountain Resort. Looking at ascending Haselback, descending Long Trail. There seems to be an 8-10" vertical rock/cliff near the Long Trail summit that requires climbing and scrambling up and down. Is this doable by a team effort of lowering the dogs by their harnesses? Any other tough spots for dogs?

The Green Mountain Club will most likely have specifics on that part of the trail. They have information specialists.
According to the website, the gondola is only open in summer and fall. Can you tell me if a ride (ski lift/gondola) is available for non skiers? I will be visiting the mountain the last week of March with my grandchildren. Thanks!

The gondola is available for non skiers. I went up and ziplined down!
