We visited Mount Mansfield today, driving up smugglers notch. The drive was beautiful. We stopped at the Stowe Mountain Resort and paid $27 per person to ride the gondola to the top. It is well worth the price. Take a jacket, out is chilly and...More

My favorite feature of this mountain is the ride over Smuggler's Notch. One of the most beautiful and underrated drives in the country.

We took the gondola up the mountain and enjoyed the view from the top. It was cloudy once we arrived at the top, but still enjoyed ourselves. It was in the 40s at the top in August, so bundle up!

Definitely worth it to ride the gondola up to take in the spectacular view. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I feel $28pp is a bit pricey for the trip. My older daughter was begging to do the zip line...More

Call Stowe Area Association. They should know the answer or, if not, be able to give you a number to call. Have fun.

The gondola is big enough to put a small collapsible stroller in with a couple of people. Once half way up the mountain (when the gondola stops) you can get out and walk around a bit. The views are awesome, and there is a... More
